I feel useless. Eyes glazed. She is on hospice the nurse says give her the meds it will give her comfort but Auntie will not cooporate spits like a machine gun anything I put in her mouth. I give a bite then duck down ...I have mixed with applesauce that's the closest I get to getting anything in her. She bites down on the spoon then starts blowing it everywhere. Chocolate pudding was the worst! Looks like poop everywhere! lol!!
I know we are nearing the end of her journey. I knew the day she refused food but I just have so many questions and I've been through this before ...but still I am afraid. I really am afraid never felt this scared before, my dad had my mom in the NH the residents had their family now I am the only one. My family is here but Auntie never bonded with anybody in the family she refused to say anyones name except mine and my grandchild. What can I say to get Auntie to take her meds? What can l say to comfort her? Do I stay by her side all the time? I play her favorite music. ANY ideas HOW to get her medicines in her?? SHE WONT TAKE NOTHING KEEPS SPITTING ....if ANYBODY has any ideas PLEASE SEND ADVICE Thank you all
