I am totally confused and scared. My 83 yo mother has gallbladder cancer and along with chemo and radiation (which she tolerated very well), she got a biliary drain and blood clots in leg. When they placed the biliary drain they knicked a blood vessel. She got her first sepsis attack 1 month ago. We were told it was from the biliary drain. After IV fluids and antibiotics for 2 weeks she seemed clear of it and was sent to an acute care hospital to recover. She cannot walk, is barely able to sit, cannot swallow, and is very weak. Only 1 week later she got sepsis again and rushed to ER for another treatment of IV fluids and antibiotics. This time the hospitals palliative care doctors told us that my mother will more than likely keep getting sepsis because of her cancer (they refuse this time to say it is from the biliary drain that had knicked her blood vessel) and suggested we take her home with hospice care and let her die "comfortably". From my understanding sepsis is not something you can die comfortably with. They said hospice can continue the IV and antibiotic treatments at home if we so chose and this would stop her visits to ER. My mother is adamant that she wants to stay in the hospital. She does not want the burden placed on me to care for her and she believes nurses and doctors in a hospital is best for her. But the last few days she has gotten so weak, is barely coherent, and has started to have delusions, she sees people that are not there. She keeps telling the nurses she wants to die, she does not want to live like this, to give her a shot and let her die, she begs me to help her die. I am so scared and so uncertain on what to do.
