Topic: Symptoms at the end
My Dad is nearing the end. He declined in the last 24 hrs. He has been mainly asleep, barely talking and he is making a noise while asleep as if he has pain but when we ask him if has pain, he doesn't answer. We don't want to give him to many medications at one time but wonder if we should give him either methadone or morphine. He also started the hiccups this afternoon even while asleep.
The hospice nurse told us based on his very low pressure he may only have a few hours to days.
