When do the doctors say enough is enough? Three weeks ago MuM aged 941/2 had a seizure followed by aspiration pneumonia. She was admitted to hospital and recovered enough to be sent home,having had IV antibiotics,with only oral antibiotics. She was very bright the first two days afterwards ( for mums stage that is 7b/c). Three days after the end of those antibiotics the chest infection returned and she is now on her third set of antibiotics and it's not clearing. I am very loathe to have her re admitted to hospital for all the obvious reasons . She is very weak and as her gp said is not picking up as quickly as she would like. I should say mum has very very advanced Alz. I have no wish to prolong any distress but equally no wish to shorten her life if she might pick up. I am in bits. I am also an only with no other relatives except my husband and daughters and so the responsibility is mine. Any thoughts gratefully received .she has had a very good life.
