As I've said in a previos post, my husband has stage IV Colon Cancer,and yesterday we signed up with Hospice. He's on some new meds, and today we went to the hospital for a blood transfusion, and he really hasn't had any "good days" this week. Here's my question: He's been saying things that are completely off the wall--is that normal? Does that seem to be part of the declining process?? It's stuff like on the way home today I asked him what he wanted to eat, and his response was "A matching pair of goggles would be nice." He's virtually spent the last several days groggy. It just feels like I'm losing more and more of him. I was looking at some old pictures recently and it makes me long for the life we once had together...
Our Hospice nurse is supposed to be here tomorrow, so I'm sure that I can ask him about some of this, but I wanted to see what some of you who have been in my shoes before me had to say about your experiences.
Thanks in advance to those of you who share your knowledge and advice with me.
