I have a friend whose son has DMD and is really having a hard time. He has been on numerous meds and continues to seemingly go downhill. His mom has absolutly run herself to death by being his home "nurse" 24/7. He is suffering from horrible diarrhea, and is on IV antibiotics that she is having to give every 6 hours. He is hurting and weakening right before he eyes. Does anyone know when hospice can or will step in and help? I know that years ago, they would not help unless they felt the person had 6 months or less to live, but I know its changed now. If anyone has any info, please let me know. If you think you can help her please send me an email address or something and I will send ti to her. She is such an amazing person, and her son is just incredible too. I really want to try and help her. Thank you all so much in advance.
