My mother is in the late stages of Alzheimer's and is in her 5th year of being in a nursing home. She has been on a peg feed for 3 years but for the past few months has had alot of sickness which they describe as 'coffee ground blood'. When this happens they peg feed her just water until it goes away, she has lost alot of weight the last few months because of this. Yesterday, however, the nurse from the home rang to say that mother had been sick again this time more red than 'coffee ground' and asked what she should do. This sounds cruel to some people but as she had a spell in hospital of 8 weeks leading up to Christmas and they didn't even explore where the 'coffee ground blood' was coming from, just nursing her like they do in the home, I said I didn't want her to go back into hospital. Unfortunately, I have no siblings to consult about this and feel really alone in my decisions. Am I right to say I don't want her to go back into hospital? Your advice would be really helpful. Adele.
