Mom broke her hip and fractured her pelvis in 2 spots the 3rd week of January. She was in the hospital for about 13 days and was all set to transfer to a nursing/rehab home for physical therapy to get her up and moving again.
She refused to go because she claimed she was in so much pain (which I'm sure she was) and just wanted to go home and die. So they told my mom about hospice and that's what the nurse pushed on my sister and I. She made it seem like Mom wasn't that far from dying, so we agreed to this plan. Of course, I took her in as my sister (who has no health issues) felt it would be too stressful for her health. I have serious issues with my sibling as so many of you do, but that's life. I honestly think we should have pushed for her to go to rehab because she just might be mobile now if she had.
Mom has had no solid food for probably 10 days, however she drinks water daily. I crush her medicine and give it to her in about 1 tablespoon of yogurt. After a few spoonfuls, she sips some water. I then finish giving her the rest of the yogurt. After about 2-3 minutes, she throws it up. I'm wondering if this is because she's drinking water along with it? This has only been occurring this last week. I'll be sure to let the nurse know when she comes sometime this week, but I'd like to avoid the upchucking until then.
