ischemic stroke into hospice care
My mom 81 year had a second massive ischemic stroke two weeks ago that affected her left side, eyes sights, can't swallow and unable to respond questions.  First stroke was 10 years ago, which was a hemorraghic stroke on the left side of the brain (she recover from it).  Now, she has been taken to hospice care where they have stopped all medication she was taking and now they are talking about reducing her nutrition via feeding tube.  I have a feeling that hospice is ending her life with Ativan and Morphine to relive her of pain and suffering.  I don't know if her prognosis was terminal in the first place. If it wasn't terminal in the first place, day to day it seems to be terminal after starting the hospice care.

What can I do to clear all these doubts? I feel desperate as time is not on my side.
