my dad in law is 86 and has stage 4 lung cancer which has spread, his liver readings are very high! he has been eating although nowhere near like he did, yesterday he seemed to eat loads but today very little and hardly anything to drink. he is in a nursing home which is a wonderful place. his right arm is swollen x3 to his left which looks awful his hand looks like he has a boxing glove on. today when i visited he was very sleepy but not as confused as he has been over the past 2 weeks, maybe because they have increased his morphine. he is on zormorph 10mg twice day, morphine sulphate 5mg twice day and oromorph 10mg 4 hrly, he was also very yellow, due to the cancer in his liver?? but he seems pale now, it is horrid seeing him like this and his arm and shoulder gives him so much pain :(. will we know when he is due to pass over, will we have any warning signs so we know to be with him 24 hrs?? thanks
ps his urine is like strong unmiled tea, they also have a poo list with different pics of poo and tick the one which my dad in laws represents??
