I'm sorry to hear that your stepmother has had such a hard time of it. My mom, who had metastatic breast cancer, was also in a hospice home at the end. She had opted to discontinue chemo when the side effects became intolerable to her. The hospice kept her comfortable and allowed her to die with peace and dignity. I wish your stepmom--and you--peace.
Thank you Teri. It is a slow and painful death. I never knew there was such thing as a hospice home. They do a far better job moving her and keeping her pain under control than any of us could do. She is such a fighter, never once has she complained about her pain or sickness. She hasn't eaten in 5 weeks.
