End Stage

My mom is in end stage kidney failure. She was in hospital with severe anemia and received blood transfusion. Her Dr sent her back to Nursing home and said she probably only has a few days. That was 8 days ago. She actually went back and started talking (hasnt done that for 6 mos) and smiling and seemed better. She had also started small doses of morphine. I was told sometimes the morphine causes them to talk???

She is now back to the way she was before hospital. Not eating or talking, cold all the time and all slumped over and muscles contracted.

Does anyone know how this progresses? I want to take a leave work to be with her but no on seems to be able to tell me whats going on-I know its up to god in the end, but I'm so stressed and nervous, I dont's know what to do.

Thanks
-Lori

Re: End Stage

I'm sorry Lori, but things like kidney failure are extremely unpredictable. The doc could be right with only a few days left, but then again she could rally and it could be weeks. I wish I could be more positive for you.
