The Chart

My father is currently under hospice care as his advanced lung cancer progresses. I’m here with him and my mother. Many family members and friends have come to visit and to help. As his palliative care treatment ebbs and flows, I noticed that the emphasis has been on the med and not so much the symptom. Because my mom can get anxious and stressed when she’s sleep-deprived, alone with dad and he’s in pain, I created a chart I thought might be helpful.

His liver has been compromised, so we are trying to avoid any unnecessary drugs.

  1. I am late reading this so I am sending prayers and hope that all is as well as it can be under the circumstances. I like your chart idea. As my parents age and their health decline I can probably use a similar chart. Thank you for the idea and blessings to you and your family! ❤🙏
