Hi all, so my MILs oxygen is up to 16 liters now. She’s gone from 12 to 16 liters in less than 2 weeks. My husband holds the health care POA. Her home machines go up to 20 liters (she has 2 machines that go up to 10 with a Y connector). Tonight I asked him if he has talked to his mom to see what she wants to do if and when 20 liters isn’t enough, I mean assuming she doesn’t pass on before it gets to that point and he said he hasn’t. The POA says no to everything-no DNR, no life-prolonging treatment, no machines. If MIL eventually needs 20 liters and then it becomes not enough......should there be a conversation to discuss what is next? She wants to be home so if 20 liters isn’t enough, it would be require hospitalization, I don’t know if she could go to a nursing home though? Or is a conversation not necessary because of the POA saying she wants no life-saving measures? For a few days I thought she maybe had 2 weeks left but she keeps surprising us all! I didn’t think it would get to where 20 liters isn’t enough but it looks like it’s entirely possible she’ll get to that point. Seems to me maybe the kids should talk about this with her? Or do we just assume that when she starts struggling at 20 liters that we give her Ativan and morphine and whatever happens, happens? Do we turn off the oxygen at that point? I just hate not knowing and if this was my mother, I would ask her what she wants us to do when 20 liters is not enough. Or will hospice tell us what to do? No one seems to be asking questions here. The health aide was supposed to come clean MIL today and didn’t show up and did anybody call? Nope, they assume she will come tomorrow even though The schedule is MWF.
