Thank you for your replies. They were very helpful. Hospice is here with mom, but haven't really been able to give me more than just general answers to my questions. I started mom on morphine two nights ago, and she's more comfortable now. Her eyes are always half closed - even when sleeping, her legs and arms are usually cold - but the rest of her body is warm. She doesn't speak, stand, walk or feed herself, and is completely incontinent. Her vital signs are stable: regular pulse and moderately low blood pressure. I'm hoping that this information will be familiar to one of you, so you can guide me to know what is next?
Thank you so much for your help.
