It's human nature to hang onto two basic hopes: the hope of overcoming illness and the hope of delaying death. However, in many cases the reality is that your loved one faces a steady medical decline, a life-threatening illness or impending death.
Hope is like the vase that contains your sweet-smelling colorful dreams. Dreams, like flowers, change over the seasons of life and the stages of caregiving. Yet, no matter how desperate the situation, there is always room for hope and dreams. It is the magical salve for the suffering of caregivers and their loved ones.
Hope is the optimistic belief that you can expect a better tomorrow. Sometimes that better tomorrow happens as a result of something that changes in the outside world such as a new drug or unexpected help. Sometimes the better tomorrow arrives because you see things from a new perspective. Hopes and dreams become the guiding light for the tough choices that you and your loved ones face.
Here are 7 tips for hanging onto hope:
When you define the most likely outcome, it helps you decide where to place your hopes. For example, a friend of mine who is a family doctor told me of a conversation between him and a loving mother whose 6-year-old child had a relapse of leukemia after a bone marrow transplant. There was an experimental treatment offered halfway across the country. The mother wanted to know where to take her child: to a new hospital across the country for lots of "pokeys" as her son called them, or Disneyland to enjoy the final days of his life. Does she hope for a cure, or for the fullest remaining days of her child's life?
You may find it difficult to support him. You do not want to burden your loved one with your disappointment that he has placed hope in a different place than you would if you were in his shoes. That's when you turn to a trusted friend and say, "I wish Dad would make a different choice. I want him to fight. I'm sad and angry that he's chosen death."
You too could have a dream of a healthy and independent loved one that's "hard to let go of." The loss of a dream can be as painful as the loss of a loved one. Mourning the loss of a dream brings healing.
State your dreams as attaining something you want rather than avoiding something you don t want. As medical conditions change, it's important that you and your loved one revisit the dream. If you're disappointed about the course of events, ask, Is this the loss of a dream, or a hope I can fulfill?
