    Csimonwitz, My mother 83, pancreatic cancer also didn't want hospice, but I tell you they have been a God sent .. I had to return to work, so a friend was staying with her and I needed a professional opinion about her they would come 2x a week .. They set up someone to bathe her 2x a week and many other services all paid by Medicare, they send in diapers or any meds they feel she needs to make her comfortable .....

          Thank you I have stepped out and returned to work and let other people care for her .

            Thank you I hope with me having a frank talk with her helped her realize that she still can live a while longer and not to give up .. Everyone around her agrees she is tired but it's not that easy to die if God hasn't called you home yet ., she will suffer far more if she lets herself starve to death ... Since she keeps saying I don't know what she's going through I said I have a pretty good idea I've read so much of...

                My 83 yr old mother has basically given up the fight , but no where near the end of her life .. If she would just eat she could feel a lot better she says she wants to eat but can't , I'm not buying it anymore because she will eat cream of wheat drink water juice etc .. She keeps saying the food taste bad in her mouth doesn't want to chew so I started pureeing her food then that's not right either .. I wish there was...

                  I'm glad you posted they have tried every medication for this vomiting my mother has been doing for about 2 months or so .. She also doesn't want to eat never regained that ability fully because she says food doesn't taste right . I believe she's just given up after they told her one lymph node by her liver was enlarged on her last ct scan . She can be in bed for up to 18 hours a day .. I,along with the family thinks...
