My mom was recommended for hospice today!!!!!!!! I think the dr is doing this b/c my mom has some unexplained pain that isn't treated effectively with Tylenol. Also, she's not eating so she's considered "failure to thrive". I guess they'll use morphine? Feels so drastic to me, but I believe they said that plenty of people "are discharged from hospice"....? Has anyone heard of using hospice to actually get better, then getting off it?????
as always, thanks.
