Hi, my mom had stage 4 COPD. I live in Hawaii and she lives in FL. I’m with her now and don’t feel comfortable leaving to go home. I’m 39 and not sure what to do and haven’t had to deal with anything like this before.
She’s been on oxygen for a couple of years. She still smokes a few cigarettes throughout the day. I’ve noticed she’s lost a lot of weight since last year when I saw her and she can’t be off the oxygen more than 10 min. It drops quick. The other day it dropped to 77 because she took it off for a few moments when walking around. When she put it back on I noticed her eyes rolled back in her head for a brief second before the oxygen could fully kick in. It really scared me. She’s not eating a lot at all and sleeping more and more. Has anyone dealt with this before and what should I do?
