shrimp Posted September 4, 2008 Share Posted September 4, 2008 It was another one of those days. Dad was really depressed, anxious and in pain. He is more distended, has more yeast infections, more swelling. His claustrophobia is worse. They tried to get him up today and he went to his knees. I had a long talk with the nurse and she talked with the Dr. We are going with Hospice and take him home. We got his pain meds increased. Dad wanted a catheter and he will be getting that. They are going to do a swallow study to see why he is so full. The Dr. thinks the cancer is throughout his abdomen and maybe his brain. I was wrong about his diagnosis date. It was July 18 not June 27. June 27 he went to the Dr for something else. It has only been 7 weeks. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
