I would sincerely appreciate some advice or experience if I may. My mother-in-law (88) has dementia and lives in a care home. On Monday she began having seizures, vomiting bile and completely lost consciousness. She is in hospital now and hasn't regained any consciousness since Monday. The doctor says this is common in dementia and it's possible within three days (or as long as a week) she can resurface and potentially go back to her care home. This of course gives us hope. I can't find anything on the internet, however, related to seizures leading to unconsciousness over such a long time with dementia? The reality is she's pulling out the feeding tube and they can't reinsert it. Although she is taking fluids through an IV and is catheterised, I can't see how she can get better after four days unconscious and not taking any food whatsoever. She is not responsive to anyone but cries out and is restless sometimes. When this happens she is given morphine. Has anyone experienced this? Is there any advice on what we can or should do? If she is end stage, which feels more likely to me sadly, I'm wondering if a hospice is better than the stroke ward of a hospital both in terms of expertise and her experience however limited it might be? Not sure what to do. Any advice gratefully received.
