Suffering from end stage liver failure. High bilirubin. When can I put her in hospice?
My mom has end stage liver failure and has been in the hospital for a month. Her bilirubin was as high as 19 but came down after the last tap(12.5). Each time they tap her they drain 4-5 liters of fluid out. Her meld score is 30 and has had varices banded. She is incoherent most of the time and ius being fed through an ng tube. How long should I let her be in this state before putting in hospice?
