Some medications will now have to be stopped and it worries me. Sister in law is now on hospice, almost a month now. They are wonderful, the help we receive is excellent, medications are delivered, any questions we have are answered by an RN and if needed someone comes out within 1/2 hour. Shower nurse is a great guy..including doing her hair and bringing little Barretts and making her feel pamperd. 3 medications have to be stopped now, 2 I have no issue with, but the humera really helps with her pain levels. SIL health wise has been steady, couple of storms where usually we'd in the ER for 18 hours have been weatherd comfortably at home, what she would have been hospitalized for was delt with with medications on hand. She is better, she is surprising the staff.....actually not unusual for her, she was diagnosed with cirrosis almost 4 years ago and told in 7 mo she would be in ICU awaiting a liver transplant...that didn't happen, but a year and a half later she was diagnosed with breast cancer which she received a double mastectomy for but thankfully chemo was not needed. She also has CHF, severe psoriatic arthritis, fibro, and had surgery 6 weeks ago for a hematoma in her cerebellum (brain) and has been having hallucinations the last two months. With all this, logically it is time for hospice...yet is it the best I can do for her? Last time she went under anesthesia (dec. 24) she wouldn't wake up and blood pressure dropped and they advised me to make THE calls. In the hospital they have to sedate her and use restraints. For the last week and 1/2 with respidol her mood swings are somewhat under control and hallucinations are at a minimum. She cannot get a transplant due to the breast cancer, she has to be cancer free 5-7 years and dr agree she will not make it that long. Logically I feel like any more invasive procedures are likely to kill her, at home she's comfortable now, has her dogs with her all the time.....but she's always shocked Drs, be it she gets some other illness not related to others, or she comes back from the brink...over & over.
