My grandma is going to start acute hospice today at the hospital for the next 24-48 hours and then will be sent home. According to the symptoms she has, she may only have a couple of weeks left. This was hard news on the family.

She has been taken off antibiotics, had her feeding tube removed, and had the wound vac removed as well. She has a deep and long incicsion (18 inches or so) in her leg that most likely will not heal due to a very low protein level. My cousin will most likely be changing the wet-to-dry dressing every day when Grandma is home.

She is on morphine every two hours for the pain and therefore, she is sleeping most of the time.
