my mom's meds were given by iv, which i learned to administer through training given by vna/hospice nurses. she was also given fentnyl patches for the pain, as well as morphine cadd pump, which provided a regular, constant dosage of morphine as well as an extra boost, (bolus) when needed, i also learned to adjust the dosage of morphine given. reglan for nausea/vomiting and haldol for agitation. all of which she received through a pic line that had previously been used for tpn.

don't feel all is hopeless, there are other successful ways to administer medication. my mom found iv meds easier & less intrusive than the constant flow of pills, liquids, etc...

hang in there... much prayer coming your way... sherry
