There's no place like...

The Hospital.

When it comes to medication and nausea management.

Rough day today. All she did was sit in her chair all day and nap. Not interested in communication or eating and drinking. Several bouts of nausea. Did get her some more prescription meds to work on nausea. Made no progress on getting her buzzed or cleaned up; she's been in her robe all day.

The rehab people came for an assessment today and after, said she was more a candidate for hospice than therapy. I meet with the hospice people tomorrow afternoon. The priority is to figure out how to manage her medical and personal needs with professional support. I've also got a call into our health insurance company to get a case manager. We know where this is heading so might as well get better support.

Very high stress level today.
