Denise is at the point now that when she is awake she is in pain and when she takes enough medicine to stop the pain, she falls asleep. She is still trying to be active, but over does it and suffers for it. The pain is mostly in her back and right arm. She has additional pain when she moves her right arm. Her hospice nurse suggested they switch from morphine to methadone, so she is at a care facility under doctor's supervision while they switch the medicines. She may be there for as much as seven days.
