I posted a couple weeks ago. My father is 80, in renal failure and congestive heart failure. He chose hospice after a recent heart attack really brought him down and he was worsening after 5 days of hospitalization. They gave him 3 days, it's been 4 weeks and this entire time, no food just chews ice. He's hallucinating, tells us he goes to church, he's not religious, and the other night was a piano bar, we go with it. He has confirmed to us he's talked to one person we know to be dead. Two days ago we thought he was close, we couldn't wake him and he was spasming all over. The facility suggested we come to see him. Yesterday and today he's called me and my brother on the phone and talks to us. He wants to go, he's ready, he's seen everyone he wants to see. He is in a nursing home but the hospice company only sends their nurse out twice a week. They even switched nurses and didn't tell me. On the day we thought he was going, the facility called, not hospice and I've had very little communication with them unless I initiate. Is this normal for a hospice company? My second question is would this be the rally before death? He's barely putting out urine and what is there is dark brown, and no food for a month, all they say is "I've never seen anything like this before" I need thoughts from experts.
