Post Update on My Aunt

Our Hospice nurse came today and said that her blood pressure was low (1o4/70) and her heartrate was high 112 ? I thought that was strange. She was also running a low grade fever. My parents have decided that she needs to be brought to their home to help ease with staying with her 24/7. Hopefully that will happen soon. They'll get a nice hospital bed, a port-poddy and hopefully the bed will help with not getting bed sores. That medication she put her on was "Lorazepm" an anti-anxiety drug which really knocked her on her butt - literally. It was quite sad - my dad doesn't like giving it to her - even though he's sick of arguing and fighting with her over the stupidst' things - he still doesnt like seeing her barely be able to put a cup to her mouth or stumble when she trys to walk - so I don't know what's next ....

Thanks for your concern eveyone!
