The nurse 'finally' came by today and said that the Dr. agreed to up her dose of Fetanyl patch... she only had 25ug which is the minimum and tonight, we'll try to give her 75 ug to make sure that she doesn't suffer like last nite. The nurse gave her 'til Friday, Sat. at latest, but strange thing is mom's blood pressure is still very hi (could possibly be due to pain), and she still has circulation to her feet as of now.

She can't swallow and we tried to have it put under her tongue but the saliva & mucus just pushed it right back out of her droopy & uncontrolled lips.

unfortunately, mom was only conscious enough to tell us that she was in pain and nothing after that.... i believe that right now, she's in a coma... i'm just glad that she's resting comfortable right now and hopefully remain that way 'til the end.

Thanks again..
