My husband is in end stage COPD. He has been hospitalized many times, the last time was for a month at a nursing home for some rehab. He is not doing well at all. He has chronic respiratory failure... he retains CO2. They put him on a Noninvasive Ventilator called Trilogy. He uses it a lot....it's getting to be almost all the time. He sleeps nearly all the time. He can't do much of anything for himself. I still manage to work two days a week but I'm afraid that might be changing soon. I wonder if anyone has had a similar experience and how they dealt with it? I also wonder if anyone has any experience with the Trilogy and the use of it most of the day. I'm feeling very frightened about what lies ahead and yet I don't know what lies ahead if that makes any sense.
