My mom was just released from the hospital after a COPD flare. While in the hospital she fell and broke her hip and pelvis. Her heart went into AFIB a few days later. She was released from the hospital about a week later with her cancer doctor saying there was nothing else they could do. After calling her lung doctor to see if she could prescribe an antibiotic we were told she is in end stage COPD and antibiotic really wouldnt help. We were told to call in hospice, but my mom is so afraid that even talking about it gets her anxiety skyrocketing, We also have a sister that refuses to even talk about it, My moms O2 levels drop dangerously low many times a day which scares all of us, We dont know if she is nearing the end or if this could last for quite some time. Please help.
