Hi. My grandmother is currently in hospital (she is 91) and has a infectious fungi uti bug now that is causing her pain in her kidneys on her side and also has a chest infection with fluid on lungs. She has been in hospital for 5 weeks now with a recurrent uti infection and chest maybe 2-3 weeks now. It has come to the time where doctors told my mum that they can not do anything else now because they have tried everything. She had two fits yesterday (head went back and couldn't breathe) so now she is on oxygen. We just want her to go peacefully but it is a hard time because we want her to move on peacefully and pain free but will be a sad time to let go too. Was just wondering what morphine actually does and how long till she may pass? Doctors are meeting with mum tomorrow to discuss what they will do with i guess doseages, but they said they will stop treatment and will just give her morphine to relax and calm her so she is not in pain. They think she is nearing the end of life and that the infection from bladder may go septic or she will get pneumonia.
If you have any advice please let me know.
I appreciate any answers or advice, thank you in advance.
