A couple of conversations with Mother today, interrupted by work.
This afternoon, she told me that hospice care had prescribed nebulized morphine to ease her respiration. Her caretaker said she may never experience pain, but the morphine obviously would help with that, too.
I read about the use of morphine for breathing problems here: http://www.qualityoflifecare.com/?p=264
I didn't really realize that Mother is spending most of her time in bed. I guess the reunion weekend will just be a parade. Anna gets in at noon on Friday, Britt gets in at 5. We get in Thursday and will rent a car.
