On nov.17, we called in hospice, and they accepted Marge. She couldn't walk without a walker, and hospice gave us a wheelchair, which was a godsend.
she was spending about 20-22 hours a day in bed. What possessed me I don't know (miracle?), but I took it upon myself to stop giving her one of about 9 meds
she had been taking for about 4 years, caduet. The list of side affects is voluminous! Any way, she perked right up, started walking again, and although she still spends a lot of time in bed, and still has short term memory losses, it's a world of difference, and hospice will probably bow out of the picture at least for a while!
