- Loved one DX
The night before last my husband starting making a gargling noise every time he took a breath in and a loud moan while breathing out. I was pretty freaked out, and awake most of the night. When he woke he said he was fine. I tried getting him to swallow and I raised the head of his bed up. Last night it was not as loud but he was still making the gargling sound. I wonder if it's the saliva building up in his throat because it is hard from him to swallow? We do have hospice and he has recently developed bed sore's on his feet and I have him propped and wedged at night. During the day he is mobile, he can still walk although he has very little use of his arms, his speech is very slurred and he eats very little, he will drink milk shakes and an ensure. Any ideas on the sounds he is making. The posts by Onion were interesting...
