A very difficult time for you. Have you discussed palliative or hospice care for your mother? My mum spent some time in a peaceful hospice near her home. She got the care she needed without the hustle and noise of being in a hospital bay.

Hospice doctors were able to give mum a variety of pain meds to best treat her pain and minimise side effects. Some of the residents were able to return home as their condition allowed. They also offered hospice care at home and support for families.

Hi Trisha,
I'm sorry to hear your update. A very difficult time for you both.

Has she been on morphine before? It does make some folk very nauseous. A tricky situation as she clearly needs strong painkillers. Perhaps, if this were the case, they could administer it in another form.

I agree with Rosemary, it's worth investigating hospice care. Several of my friends have personal experience of the fabulous environment, care and support they offer for the patient and their family.
