nancy c Posted June 14, 2005 Share Posted June 14, 2005 Mike got home Monday evening about 730 per ambulance. Hospice has been here and he is on a morphine pump -which they increased the dose today. He is trying to walk--and it takes his cane and sometimes two people. Tomorrow I return to work and I have someone to come in and stay with him everyday--until or if he gets stronger. My daughter is off work this week so she is helping alot. Mike told me he knows hospice is here because he is dying --and I did tell him they are here for his comfort. Dr. said the end is coming but it could be slow?? whatever the hell that means?? This is no way for anyone to live, and it is not fair. He is on oxygen as needed and he usually uses it on and off during the day with activity. Both of his arms,hands have large amount of lymphedema and the hospice nurse is checking into treating that with some type of wraps?? Both his feet and ankles are so swollen he has trouble balancing himself. He can't use his fingers because they are so swollen. This is so pitifull and if it gets worse---it will be pure hell on him. I'm still watching the site and praying for all of you--just might not get to write as much now. Take care and god bless,Nancy C Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
