I sleep on the couch next to his bed and I heard a loud thump this morning about 3:30, I got up and found him lying on the floor. He is so determined that he must get to the toilet to pee. His actions pulled the cathater right out of him - balloon still inflated. I had to call 911 to get him up of the floor. Got him settled, Nurse came and put in cathater and he has had all his meds including those that relax him in addition to the morphine. Now he is fighting again to get up. He does not recognize where we are. He is begging me to help him to the toilet. IT IS NOT GOING TO HAPPEN. I weight 135 lbs and he is a solid 200 lbs. Reason I had to call 911. It took two men to get him into bed lifting him. He now feels I don't love him because I won't help him to toilet.
He slept all night until he woke up at 3:30 on the floor. I just think the drugs are too low for his weight. I don;t know what to do. Weekend nurses are for emergencies only. She did come and put new cathater in. There are no Medical aids that are employed to work weekends with this hospice. That upsets me and I will be talking to them about this. With all this fighting to get out of bed, the bed is forever having to be remade. And, that in itself is hard work with his weight. I want him at home, not a nursing home. He sleeps all day and fights all night.
