My grandmother is in compassionate care. I’m her granddaughter and I don’t understand her treatment. She’s on morphine (due to a fractured femur sustained during a mild heart attack), and not eating much, so of course she will eventually pass away. Maybe if she was off morphine, she would eat? But if she can heal from the fracture, shouldn’t she receive sustenance some other way? I feel like she is being drugged and allowed to die. Is this normal? Before her fall, she did seem to be ‘shutting down’…being found kneeling with her eyes closed, and keeping her eyes closed a lot. I’m sorry I don’t have all the details. Does anyone have an idea of what may be going on, or what the right questions would be to ask her doctors and my mother? Thank you.
