Mom has health issues and since being on medication for high calcium, she has stopped eating, lost a lot of weight and sleeps a lot.
Her doctor wasn’t helping much, so we put her in the hospital, and they gave her an appetite stimulant. Then they placed her in a nursing home for rehab.
This actually made the situation worse, because the nursing home was nothing more than an expensive babysitting service. They pushed the PT twice a day, then she was so exhausted and weak from not eating previously that she would sleep all day.
I finally pulled her out yesterday - a week before the scheduled discharge - because I was so upset with her care. And this was a “nice” facility.
This all leads to a feeding tube (PEG) and if anyone has experience with its success. It’s very hard watching your loved one starve themselves.
