Hi. I have posted a few times...my mum is pretty poorly (been in hospital since Tues) as she 'asperated' in the care home last week. Quite honestly I didnt think she would've still been here...and you can all imagine the week Ive had. Last night I noticed they have taken down the 'drip' and she is being fed orally. It is a soft diet...but I noticed when I tried to get her to sip a drink...she gets that noise (of lots of saliva) still stuck in her throat. Does anyone else know why this is happening? I will be seeing a doctor tomorrow...but I would be grateful if anyone could advise me? She is so frail....but still hanging on.
