I hate that you are going through this!!! I'm assuming that Tom is not having any solid foods now! Is it possible that the combination of drugs is making it worse? Did they also try antiemetics like Odansetron? Maybe one at a time to try but in larger dosages? Sometimes Don felt better just having ice cubes alone. D..n!
Glad you yelled at hospice - I thought you had a better hospice group than we did - what they do is fine, I guess, but not enough. Some people around here go to the Comfort Care people just for nurses aides and longer coverage but then you need the real nurses around too. And Hospice should provide!
If it would help I would catch a flight, dance with you in the streets, and together we could make national news!
Praying hard for you both. Can you have friends around the house - I know I couldn't ask for help with the 'dirty' work, but just to be there. I didn't but I wish I had - if they were in the other room I could just get moral support as needed, a cup of tea perhaps.
Sending much love and so many prayers!!
