2 yrs ago my mother fell and broke her hip. She is now 87 and has been bedbound since falling. Over the last year she has been fighting different infections, namely chest or urine. About 3 weeks ago she had both infections at the same time and doctor suspected sepsis. My mother refused to go into hospital. She was given liquid antibiotics because she could no longer swallow medication. After a few days she could swallow again temperature came back to normal and she started to eat a small amount of food each day. This lasted for 3 days then she woke up in a lot of pain and temp was back, Doctor gave more antibiotics but she is not responding to them. It’s now Monday night and she hasn’t eaten since Friday. Doctor has her on a syringe driver and all she has done is sleep but takes sips of water when I wake her. All of a sudden she woke herself this afternoon and asked for a slice of chicken that I have cooked for tomorrow’s dinner. She ate most of one slice but then said she couldn’t eat any more. She is now reading a book which she hasn’t done for weeks. Is this a bad sign or can she actually get better from this, please can someone tell me?
