Hello all haven't been on the forum for a while but felt it would be good to share my feelings if that's OK. My Mum has been bed bound after developing a nasty hip ulcer and now is immobile. She is syringe fed and on patches for pain relief and sleeps most of the time. She has very little quality of life now and has been like this for over 5 weeks. It's so difficult as I'm in limbo and spending nearly all my time with her as she like to grab my hand. Sometimes she cannot be roused and I really think it's the end then she wakes up and smiles a little. How long will she be like this, she is so strong!
