her eyes are turning yellow and her skin is yellow how much longer will she have
No one can give you an exact time. Her time is near but it could be days to weeks to months? When her kidneys shut down and she stops producing urine and her feet and hands get blue and cold then you know death is imminent. So sorry that you and your family are going through such a sad time. It is hard to lose a parent. At this point, just be sure she is kept comfortable. If she is in pain, be sure she is getting pain meds. It is possible that pain meds may hasten her death but I am sure that she would rather be without pain and live a few days less than hang on longer in pain. Gather the family and be with her as much as possible.
I just wanted to say I am truly sorry about your mom... my mom passed of this disease in 1988 on xmas day... I was in my 20's and was there on xmas eve when they brought her in the doc's were saying stuff to my family which I didn't understand so next day xmas went to see her thinking it was serious but not that she was going to pass that quick... anyway, I was hurt broken for the nurse I told her I was there to see my mom and she didn't even tell me she had moved on and allowed me to go in... I tottally lost my mind for didn't no she was that bad... for she never told the family... being through this experience is all I would like to say to u is share every second u can with her for I didn't get that, and once again my prayers go out to u and your family... GOD BLESS U ALL...
Dear Mommyof3 = I am so sorry you are going thru this - It is so hard to see a loved one in pain. My grandfather had the exact same thing. Thru hospice he was able to remain home for a few months, but, when it got really bad, not eating, etc, he was moved to hospital. At that time I lived one state and about 8 hrs away. Got the call that not much time was left. Left the very next morning and by the time I got there he was no longer able to communicate. It was like he was asleep only you could tell it was hard for him to breathe as he was literally coming up off bed with every breathe. Nurse told us they could give him pain med, but it COULD hasten his passing. Had just been told by his doc it could be hours, days, but not much more. The family decided to ask for pain med as it was very upsetting to see him struggle so. Within an hour after giving a dose of Morphine he was gone. I tell you this not to make you sad, but, as mentioned by others, spend as much time as possible with her. You and your family are in my prayers...
