This morning we increased the dose to 1.5mg and mom spent the day sleeping peacefully :)

When we turned her (we change her position every 2 - 3 hours to alleviate bed sores), she woke up but wasn't in any pain. This is a great relief!

She wakes up off and on. If we're too noisy or we touch her or call her, she'll wake up and she is aware of her surroundings. She doesn't speak but will respond if we ask her a direct yes / no question.

If we ask her 'how are you?' she shoots us a dirty glare. Hahaha, thank God she's pretty expressive so at least we know whether she's happy or not.

There's a difference : she didn't like the physio, but she was ok with the phlegm suction. It shows clearly on her face so we know what to do. Thank God! Phew...

Tomorrow, I'll meet the Hospis dr to discuss palliative care at home vs in hospital. Meanwhile, we'll keep mom on morphine, IV feed and all the present medicines.
