I wish I could say that Carmen is doing better but she isn’t. This morning her heart rate and oxygen levels plummeted again. Her Hospice nurse came over and the only thing we can do for Carmen is to keep her sedated.
Carmen is not sick. No infection, no fever. Her body is just tiring out. For the past few months her breathing has gotten more and more labored. She is on continuous oxygen and nebulizer treatments throughout the day but nothing helps.
So, we do the only thing we can and that is to keep her as comfortable as possible.
Mark 10:14, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these.”
