Oh goodness. So hospice aide called me. Mom's hands and feet are mottled. And I know what that means. I also know it can fluctuate.
She may be having a rally. Actually got out of bed, with great assistance and sat in chair. Spoon fed and ate 50 percent of meal.
Hospice also put her on scopolomine to increase secretions, in this case, swallowing.
Her vital signs do not yet show active phase of dying. I am sorry if this graphic description upsets anyone, but in my view, it helps with expectations. So take in that vein.
We could not be more pleased with our hospice choice. They are so caring and so tender with our mom. And we are thankful.
