6am My dad had a rough night. He was up with the hiccups again. The thorazine and reglan they prescribed did not work. He was near tears this morning because of the lack of sleep, and pain. We fear he will have no relief until the tumor shrinks or is removed. We have tried all the old fashion remedies, sugar, honey, water, holding your breathe and breathing into a paper bag, nothing works. he is miserable.
I am trying to figure out what to make for dinner. Kesha the home care nurse says that he cannot have anything too salty or spicy. I think I will make a big pot of soup for dinner today.
The hiccups have stopped but now he is having a coughing fit. I know the cancer has spread to his liver and lungs already. I feel helpless.
