So in the last week I have been told my mom is dying and it will happen in a few weeks. She had breast cancer 7 years ago, became cancer free, then two years ago it was discovered that she had two lesions on her left rib cage. It was controlled with chemo up until about a few weeks ago when it was discoverd there were spots on her liver and lungs. A few days ago they found spots on her right and left brain lobes and brain stem. She's been talkative until yesterday which is when I got into town. She's at home in a hospital bed. She recognized me and could tell me she loved me, but her speech is slurred, she's lost tons of weight, I have to feed her and lift her to the bathroom. Hospice will be starting in here next week. She only has a few weeks and any advice anyone can give me, please do so. I hate that she sleeps so much because I want to talk to her. God, I don't want her to leave me. I'm 28 and I feel there are still so many things she needs to teach me.
