My Mom choose hospice care and to die at home.This sh1t sucks having to sit with her and go through all these stages of death.Would it be wrong for me tojust triple her liquid morophine dosage,since she's to the point of not even being able to swallow water?

!!! What a horrible thought! And you think you can live with that for the rest of your life??

My wife of 40 years died in our home of her own wishes. I did all I could to keep her comfortable but at no time did even think of euthinasia. Go to her room, look in her eyes, and you'll know the answer.

Besides, if she's getting hospice care her medication is closely monitored by an RN, you try that and you're looking at manslaughter at the least.

Some son you are-----NOT!!

I was going to respond to this. I can't think of a response where I could stay half way civil. What a selfish inconsiderate person you are.

I would never intentionaly hurt my mom,she has been on the lowest possible dose of moraphine since day one,she cant take the pills because she cant swallow so we switched to liquid,hospice does not regulate anything,they barely even show up,this is the hardest thing ive everhad to do in my life(watch my mom die) I just dont want her suffering and watching her dehydrate and nothing I can do i feel helpless,my first post does sound selfish i didnt intend for it to just tired and stressedlooking for answers i guess. sorry i even said anything.

Please don't be sorry for your post, and I appologize if I took it wrong. You had a huge loss, and you felt the need to vent. My mother died in Alaska, I was told she was slipping away; I could have gone one last time, but I didn't. I wanted to remember her as I knew her, a warm, vibrant woman. Maybe I was selfish, but all I have is her memory, and I'd like to keep that.

I'm asuming that methmonster and old blue eyes are one and the same being the location is he same. First we are talking about the person who gave you life. If she decides she would rather die at home that is her wish and should be honored. Before you say that I don't understand, you are wrong. I've been there and felt honored that I was able to make a loved one's passage easier. Stop thinking of your self and how it makes you feel uneasy. The person dying is not going through an easy time either. Only a useless P.O.S would put themselves in front of the loved one who is about to pass over.

Well i doubt very seriously you had to helplessly sit by and watch your mother gasping for air,left with a table full of narcotics left by hospice,and the only instructions from them is administer 2.5 mill as often as needed,the only real comfort I have found is my Mom has spent her whole life making sure she'll be going to heaven and when she does pass I believe she'll be in the express lane.
