Hasn't anyone talked with her doctor or oncologist about this? How about Hospice? You are her caretaker, are you doing this in a profesional manner, or are you just there for the family? It seems there is a lot you don't know, and maybe can be informed by her doctors. I don't understand "bleeding out" either from lung cancer. Kind of scares me. Has this been relayed to her doctors? Lots of unknowns here, maybe this should be handled by hospice.

I don't know if you've ever heard of this site, but it's dedicated to lung cancer. You can talk with a real doctor and it's an excellent place to get any questions aswered you may have.
There may even be a section on this that you can find, I haven't searched it yet. I hope it help you out.

I sent you a private reply to your first response, before I sent the link above. If you look to the top right here, above your name, there is a section with "my profile" "my friends" and then "my notifications" there you will see my reply to your first private message to me. Also, if you click on someone's name, it will take you to their profile and you will be able to read about them. I am not a caregiver, I am a patient of lung cancer.

I am mortified that I did not realize you too are a lung cancer patient! Please forgive my outrage and angry words. you are on the end Im trying to not hurt or upset.... Never as the Lord is my witness would I have spoken to you that way, and I am truly ashamed.....my reason for the question was honorable, and it has been a long road for my Lady. Please if u want to talk or chat with me I will be honored to speak to you! Forever sorry, Maisey

No problem Maisey, I am fine with you, and God Bless your heart is in such a good place. I've sent you a private reply and we are good. As I said, sometimes the typed word is not taken the way it is intended. We get into our heads trying to find answers to our questions, and sometimes our typed words don't convey what we wish. You are just fine with me, Maisey, you take care, and know I take no offense. Peace be with you, Helen
