My mum has terminal pneumonia with sepsis that has not responded to antibiotics. She is on syringe driver morphine, hyoscine for the secretions and midazolam sometimes to rest. Daily her chest crackles/bubbles are worsening (in both lungs) but she continues to hang in and has pretty much full awareness. Does anyone know how long this will last pls? We were told 24 hours 1 week ago and it's tearing me apart seeing her suffer like this.
