End Stage COPD
Hi my mum is 89 years old, about 2 weeks ago had another exacerbation, now bed bound, oxygen 24 hours, docs said 2-4 days to live. (She has pulmonary Fibrosis as well as the COPD). But she has exceeded that, she is on morphine and lorazapam, has lots of mucus on her chest, barely 5 stone now, and has days where we think it will be the end. Then all of sudden she will be more lively and want something to eat and drink. The family are in turmoil trying to cope with the rollercoaster of this awful disease, could any one advise me how long this can go on for please?
