My mother has heart failure due to atrial fibrillation and 90% and 80% inoperable blockages of her left main and left descending arteries ("widowmaker"). I was told her heart issues are "not compatible with life" by cardiologist. 3 hospitalizations and 1 ER visit in last 2 months. Last ER visit she refused to be admitted as there really is nothing left they can really do for her, so we started hospice. The first 2 weeks she was really bad with sever SOB and sleeping most of the time. One night I thought was the end. But now she is able to walk down to dinner on her own without wheelchair for the past few days without major sever breathing issues. Is this normal? She seems so good after having been so bad. How can she be so good now? I know she still needs hospice. The comfort kit has been needed. But seeing how good she is the past few days, did we jump the gun with hospice??
