My mom is 80. She broke her arm 3 weeks ago and to make a long story short our world has changed dramatically in one short trip to the ER a week ago. All of your stories are so inspiring! I was just wondering if anyone there whose experienced this- what treatments were involved and can we expect her quality of life to improve? She spends the majority of her time in a hospital bed in and out of consciousness. She is in so much pain and her last 2 chemo doses have her exhausted to the point of being catherized and we're fearful dr is going to rec her being placed in a rehabilitation setting... How do you keep her spirts up when she is so drugged? How do you encourage when she just wants to get her affairs in order and doesnt speak nor eat much???? I just want to help her, what do I do?
