Hi Michelle: Sorry to hear about your Mom. Deciding on Hospice is always a difficult decision but in this case it is the best one. I have known from experience that cancer brings out the truth about family and friends and in many cases the truth really hurts. Personally I am glad to be part of your family as you have been always here sharing your wisdom and happy thoughts with all of us. For that I am very thankful. I hope your Mom is spared the suffering and that you have a piece of mind.
I'm so sorry to hear about your mom. Hospice sounds like a wise choice at this time. My mom (who had metastatic breast cancer and who had discontinued treatment due to intolerable side effects) developed an untreatable blood clot in the main artery in her leg. I had her medical power of attorney and made the decision for hospicd. She had a peaceful and painfree passing. I hope and pray for a similar experience for your mom.
