nancy c Posted June 18, 2005 Share Posted June 18, 2005 Hello, Well my husband Mike is now at this stage.Hospice has been here 3x this week. Comfort is what our goal is now. While Mike was in the hospital last week he told the nurse he didn't want any cpr,feeding tubes,etc. Dr talked to me and it's now time to try comfort measures only. He is home. On morphine pump and xanax for anxiety. On O2 most of the time. Has alot of swelling in arms and feet and ankle. He is on a water pill; but it really has not helped. Uses cane and assist of one for ambulation. I think he got alittle stronger at home, but I wish he was stronger so we could take one more trip together. I have been watching him die before my eyes since April 19-his last chemo treatment. He is the love of my life and it's not fair for this to happen. But I want him comfortable and relaxed in his last days, weeks, or months of his life. God bless all of you, Nancy C Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
