My mother went on hospice less than two weeks ago due to failure to thrive. Bladder and bowel incontinence presented shortly before that. Weight loss has progressed and has mulitiple stress compression fractures of the spine.
I will definitely ask hospice about the sudden lack of use of her arms. I see them tomorrow. I just would like any anecdotal experience if anyone else has been through this with a loved one.
It's alarming to see her not even able to lift and coordinate her little water bottle. I'm thinking of buying a 'sippy cup' with a straw so she can manage herself. No kiddy designs, just something manageable.
Wondering if anyone else has seen this kind of progression with SCF? I'm afraid her ability to feed herself will not be far behind. *sigh*
