My mom is in her early 60s. She has had type II diabetes for more than ten years, and she has also suffered from the stroke in the past. I want a doctor's opinion about her current situation. Her present situation is as follows: Paralyzed on the right side of her body. She cannot stand or turn. She needs help to sit. She sits for not more than five minutes before asking to be made to lay down. She has lost her continence. We buy for her adult diapers. Nowadays, eating has become a problem for her. It is very hard for her to chew and swallow. We force her, but it is becoming harder from day to day. When the last time she got hospitalized, her condition did not improve. It cost us the little we had to keep her there. Now, she is back at home. It is very hard for her to speak. At times, she might intend to say something, but she can hardly pronounce a word. She spends the whole day laying down. This can go for week and months as this is the only position she finds comfort in. Do her illnesses giving their last blows?
