My MIL has emphysema and is on oxygen 24/7 she has recently gone to sleeping all day, is already under 4 stone and is now refusing food. Last time she had a 'flare up' and went to hospital (that wasnt a chest infection) the doctor told her to go home because there was nothing they can do. When I call the doctor out it's the same thing or they send antibiotics without seeing her.
Am I right in thinking that it's just a matter of time? Sooner rather than later?
The reason I ask is that I feel pretty helpless and if I don't inform the doctor if she gets worse and something happens I don't want the guilt of feeling 'negligent' but at the same time if there's nothing they can do ... any one have any advice?
