Not good

Mom is now in Hanover Hall in Pennsylvania. First let me say this place is nice and the staff is awesome. Now the bad news. The head of the admin and all heads of staff met with us two weeks ago to let us know that mom is on a huge decline and that it is just a matter of time before infection takes over and she passes. Mom got to the point where she could move her shoulders but from there it went down hill. She is still on the respirator. The doctors have given her about a one percent chance of surviving. She now has 2 bed sores and the antibiotics they are using to combat the infection is not working. They are continuing to treat her but she is in so much pain. I have requested they keep her comfortable and right now all we can do is wait to see what happens. This was a major blow to Dad and I as it came out of no where. She has lost all her weight and her skin is paper thin. The bed sores were not due to neglect from the staff as they turned her and worked with her as they are suppose to. Not much more to say other than we need a miracle.
