My father was on the hospital for four days and when they discharged him the pcp nurse is now saying we declined skiff and hospice. Yes, I declined skilled nursing facility and rehab facility, but did not decline hospice. The latter which I do not recall being offered. I feel like I am going insane trying to figure out what I am being told as well as everyone is passing the ball around as to who I am supposed to talk to while my poor father is in fricking Misery and I'm feeling like I'm on the edge of a nervous breakdown if not currently in it. Six days later I am just now finding out that yes he has metastatic bones due to prostrate cancer.
Meanwhile over the weekend since the norco was doing Nothing for his pain I got him on the phone and set him up with a medical marijuana card. And that at least is managing his pain and helping him to sleep. A blessed Miracle!!!! As I think I would have lit my hair on fire if I had to go through all of these endless phone calls and having him in excruciating Pain. I've never been a fan or user of the stuff, but what it has done for my dad has made me an overnight believer.
