Grasping for hope ....
They admitted her tonight, she's dehydrated, malnourished and has a UTI. Running a bit of fever and still in pain when the medicine wears off.
My aunt was able to get her on the pill form of the marijuana, with hopes that it would help her appetite, but the pill just started yesterday! So we shall see where that goes.
Seeking a second opinion before we turn to hospice, a professional opinion at the ER said the same thing that her Dr had said weeks ago, should consider hospice. How does one accept the fact that the only thing left to do is get her comfortable and wait for "it". How do you come to terms with " there is nothing else that can be done".
Harder than I thought... Here's to hoping she makes a turn and the suffering ends.
and our guinea pig is dying.. .It's going to be a helluva month...
