Talked to Mom's hospice nurse today. She says my mom has plateaued. Not better. Not worse. Nurse is focusing on Mom's pain management and weakness. The nurse does not feel she is near passing away any time soon. She said Mom's pain level is 5-7. She's trying to get it down to 3-4. She has upped pain med, pain patch, etc. An aide is starting on Wednesdays to help with housework. 
It's nice to be able to exhale a bit.

  1. Thinking of you in this very difficult time! Amazing how many "angels" come to the fore when one needs them most. Regards to your mom.
