      Dear friend I am sorry that another one has joined this horrible club. I am not sure what will be next but most tend to lose interest in food or have strange cravings. I remember my dad being cold a lot. Do you have hospice available for your area as this would be the best place for her. You need to spend as much time with her as you can. It will be a rough road ahead. I hope for her sake and yours that it goes quick...

        Dear Shugarhigh.... I am so very sorry for your loss. Having a little cry right now myself. Was kinda missing my dad today. It sounds so similar to my dads last day. In the end he left ever so quietly. Like your mom he seemed a little restless and who knows why. I don’t believe we are scared in the end..I believe most come to terms. I know he had accepted the inevitable. You will go through some rough times ahead an...

          Shugarhigh....yes it won’t be long now. I am thinking of you and all you are going through and will be going through. Just hold her hand. She knows you are there. Her journey is almost over. You will be ok eventually but not today or tomorrow. Please reach out here for help whenever you need it or even just to let us know how you are. Take care Judy

            So sorry to hear this but I promise you it will get better. I’m sure your mom is terrified. I remember how restless my dad was the day he passed...thankfully the doctor gave him more meds. Please know that I’m thinking of you. Judy

                I am very sorry that you and your mother are going through this. Is she being seen by a doctor? There are things that can be done to help her and make her more comfortable. She doesn’t need to do chemo or radiation. It is my understanding that this cancer does not respond to that type of treatment anyway. My dad opted not to do anything except have some stents and a drain inserted. He was feeling pretty good for abou...

                  It sounds like you might have less time than what you thought. I remember my dad saying random things in the last couple of weeks as well. It is a very aggressive cancer and once it takes hold. Try and get your mom into hospice as soon as possible. They are the best equipped to deal with her. Has her doctor told her she is going to die? Is she having a hard time accepting that? I know this is very hard for you.....re...

                    Since I don’t know where you live I can only speak to my healthcare system here in Ontario Canada. My father never made it to hospice. Once the doctors told him there was nothing more that could be done he was gone within a week. He was seen by a palliative nurse and a social worker. They tried to keep him home but it was too difficult for my 84 year old mother. Every situation is different but I honestly felt in his...

                      First off Shugarhigh....let me say how very sorry I am that you are dealing with this. It sounds very familiar in many ways. You didn’t say how old your mom is but I’m assuming over 60. Cancer generally not great but this one is really nasty. I think it is best to let your mom eat what she feels like at this point. My dad even had a little beer the day before he passed??. We also dealt with swelling and the nurses us...
