Topic: Sorry so long but an update and a question about sleep at the end
Dad has been on hospice care for a few weeks now. We took him to Disney last week to fulfill his final wish. The whole family was there (14 of us). He got to spend a couple hours at the parks 3 days.
He is going downhill fast and I know the end is very near. He does not sleep. He thinks he does, but he doesn't. I kind of think it is to just keep him going. It is frustrating to mom because she has to be up all night helping him get up an down and make sure he is safe. I am going to come when my husband gets off of work this week (2 am) so she can sleep for awhile.
They have tried Ativan but it made him dangerously confused and out of sorts. I assume most sleeping or anxiety drugs will do the same thing as his liver cannot metabolize them?
Also, what else can I expect in the next little bit? I feel I have asked before but I don't remember and can't find my old posts from my phone.
