Super Quick Update

Mom has been losing a lot of weight because having food put in front of her makes her break out into a sweat and feel nauseaus. She looks gaunt. Her MS or diabetes is making her legs feel numb.
Her dementia is leaving her extremely angry, so angry that she walked out of her house the other day and was missing for a short period of time. So scary. She is still experiencing congestive heart failure on a biweekly or monthly basis for which she feels like she is drowning and cannot breathe.
At last nights support group meeting someone mentioned Hosparus as a recommendation for us to bring them in to make her comfortable at home rather than continuously taking her to the hospital for the times she experiences her congestive heart failure. Any personal advise from those of you who have experience with Hosparus? Would be greatly appreciated.
