Re: [MOL] Requesting help/Kathy G.

I was truly sorry to hear about your mother and inspired by your loving assistance to her.  It's tough when the tides turn; but I know your mother is in good hands as you ride this wave in. The morphine drip pump has a good reputation for taking care of the pain; but unfortunately there are those side effects, sleeping too much; etc. Is your mother responding well to the morphine?  Has her pain lessened any?  Sometimes taking Procetamoe works well and also reduces the amount of other pain meds. needed.  You may want to ask your mother's doctor about this.  I hope I have been of some help to you.  Please know that the two of you are in my prayers and pls. keep us posted, join in on any conversation, let us help you through this journey.  Your friend, lillian   -
