Babe, fire the doctor. I did. Just in time. Just because they have that MD does not mean they graduated at the top of the class. ...Hospice care is wonderful, as long as it is a not-for-profit hospice. I have watched neighbors and friends resist hospice, or even just nursing homes, until the last minute. Trust me on this: at a certain point they do better with professional care from strangers.

thanks for the response, my doctor doesnt believe in nursing homes,he said that parents should be with there children until the end and not discarded to a home. The doctor said the quaility of care is just not the same. So I will not ask but tell him to get me some assistance in home health care or hospice. I think i've been to eager to please both the advise of doctor and mom and feel like ive spread my self to thin. Did i mention i also have my 89 yr old mother in law living with me too she has emphysema!!! They both see the same doctor.
