Nursing Care For Janet

I retired from the City of New York in 2015 and moved to ft. Myers Florida. I had been diagnosed with diabetes since the early 90's. In 2018, my kidney doctor diagnosed me with renal failure and attributed it to the diabetes. I was referred for a kidney transplant with Tampa General hospital and started to get tested in preparation for that transplant. In 2019, I was hospitalized for breathing problems. Xrays showed fluid in my lungs and I was placed on dialysis. Over the next year, I was hospitalized several times and even had surgery to remove a thick lining from my left lung but that did not help. Recently I was told that there is nothing more they could do, and I should consider Hospice care. I don't feel I should give up on myself. My daughter has been here for the past few weeks but I need more care because they have to return to their jobs. I need to hire private help for a least 3 months
