My Mom is currently in hospice with cancer in her lung, liver and bones. She is 81 and was diagnosed 4 months ago. They tried chemo, radiation, and Tarceva (for a month). We now wish we had never tried the drug route on her as it had the usual horrible effects. We started hospice 10 days ago and it is excellent. They manage her pain, which is the most important thing to my Dad and me. They also provide a booklet with information on what the body goes through during the last 90 days of life (typically). They prepare you for your loved ones death and they are available to you 24/7. I'm staying with my Dad now until Mom passes and we both thank hospice every day for the service they provide to us.
Good luck and God bless you.
