To those that remember me I had originally asked about pain medications given to my mom in Hospice nursing care. Just want to give an update my mom passed away on Tuesday, 02/25. We knew the end was coming but when I got called with the news of course I was devastated. I am now at the airport waiting to fly back to Michigan from California. Missed my original flight as we took longer to drive with accidents on the road. Now scheduled for 3 1/2 hours later but on standby. Hope I make it there today. The funeral is Sunday, but have to get with our clergyman and funeral director, etc. To the person who asked how long it can be anywhere to days to a couple of months or even longer.
