My mum has been in hospital for 8 weeks now after a fall. She developed sepsis and started to have seizures which were quite severe. The sepsis is now gone and medication is keeping the seizures under control. The trouble is that she will not eat and drink very much and the consultant has asked for a meeting to discuss stopping all medication and IV drip overnight. The thing is over the last two days she has improved due to two nurses taking the time with her to eat and drink more and she was sat up in bed chatting today. We are meeting the consultant on Tuesday and unfortunately the two nurses are now off for a couple of days. I think she will go downhill again which means that the consultant will see her after she has deteriorated again. I don't want to see her suffer any longer than she has to but am a bit worried about what to do. Has anyone else been in this situation? I would appreciate some advice. Thanks.
