Took us over a week in the hospital to regulate the choking/pain/etc the best we could. Thankful mom was coherent enough to help my sister and I with the questions on the DNR. Having experienced a ventilator first hand made one question easy to answer. Two days ago mom was moved back to the care facility on hospice. Mom could have used the anxiety medication (Lorazepan) a few weeks earlier to ease her discomfort. Always trying to look for a cure please remember the comfort measures are needed, hospice has been great.
We experienced a few qlitches with the recent transfer back to the care facility, just have to step back and remember take a breather before I say anything.
Seems like it's constantly changing for the worst, mom is very uncomfortable, it appears her anxiety meds aren't working, nor the morphine. I hope I don't offend anyone with the details. I've requested more drying agents, anxiety meds, and morphine.
