Hospice

Friday afternoon I had to call the Hospice nurse out and the decision was made that dad needed to go to the Hospice house for at least a few days so we could get his breathing under control.

Dad had a really bad first evening. But was doing some better. Yesterday was an ok day as far as Dad's days go. The decision was made to give him a pump so he could have continuous meds to help him breathe better.

But this morning he was really confused and I had to get the nurse to help me with him. Nurse says that dad's disease will cause him to get more and more confused, more and more augmentative, and have more and more anxiety. This is something I didn't know.

  1. I am sorry to hear that. I hope you can try and have a good father's day and sorry he feels bad on father's day. Hope you are doing well yourself!
