Last week Charles coughed for 14 hours straight! They told me to give morphine every hour on the hour. I did but now three days later he can't eat (teeth clenched) or drink (just a wee bit) is unresponsive and can't transfer. I'm keeping him in the bed for now. He still coughs occasionally and it frightens him.
Has anyone had this happen and will he bounce back when the morphine leaves his system? He is so painfully thin I think we overdosed him. I still see pinpoint pupils.
Advice or suggestions. I'm not leaving his side.
