Deterioration

Mum in now deteriorating rapidly. 

Almost bed bound downstairs, on medication for pain and discomfort, very jaundiced, very weak and speaks slowly and quietly. Although she not yet particularly confused. Just too exhausted to say much.

There is a palliative chemo available but they wouldn't administer it unless she got stronger, and it's going in teh reverse direction quite quickly. So she's made her decision to ask to be moved to hospice home care and a bed is coming next week which will hopefully enable her to be more comfortable downstairs where, currently,  she is in a single bed.

It's difficult and scary times as I've no idea what's ahead, apart from the obvious.
