I am my mother's care giver here at home. She is under Hospice care due to 4 strokes and a few seizures. She has now gotten to the stage where she has been asleep for about three days straight. Her breathing seems a little more difficult where there is about 40 seconds of apnea. She is also making a hiccup sound every now and then. I'm just trying to get some clarity here. She is not using the bathroom nor is she able to swallow properly.
