I posted previously about my mom's pacemaker infection. She has been in nursing home since June 17. We stopped physical therapy a few weeks ago because she was too tired to do much therapy. She is still on some heart medicine (carvedilol) and Lasix (diuretic). Now she has a couple of bed sores on her behind, they are treating. This afternoon, the CNA said mom called her four different times, asking for coffee, and the CNA had to explain each time about coffee not ready yet. This morning she did not remember eating breakfast and said she was tired and would eat lunch later. Then in the evening, she did remember eating breakfast. Not sure if this confusion is due to low blood flow to the brain, since she has 10-15% ejection fraction of the heart. She also is weaker with transferring from and to bed, so they will start using the lift for her. I am talking with hospice nurse tomorrow morning, and probably will start hospice care, as I want my mom to have some quality of life, rather than going out to doctor appointments and getting more tired. I don't know what to think anymore, and I want her to feel better and have better memory. She has always been mentally sharp, even at 94 years old.
