Hi all I'm new to post here but have read many many stories on this website, in the hope of learning more about this devastating disease.My mam has later stage dementia/alzheimer's
I'm just wondering if I'm starving my mam to death? She has pneumonia but i can hear a huge improvement in her chest when she coughs its no longer chesty but more dry if anything.Is this normal???/?Shes on morphine and is becoming delirious.DOES Morphine do this ? I believe so.. I'm not sure its doing her any good.Shes off all her normal meds and gets serenace and morphine pump-injected into her abdomen.Doses increase from day to day.Im very very confused ......I can thank the HSE for that!!!.Doctors said it would be best to let her die with dignity and suggested solid food or a drip not to be ad-mined.because she couldn't fight the pneumonia, but I hear a huge change when she coughs.It sounds so much healthier.problem is she doesnt cough that much anymore and im the only one to have noticed this in the last 3 days. Has anyone had the same experince?
