I just wanted to talk to anyone that has anything to share about having their mom in hospice care. My mom has been battling cervical cancer for 2 years. She was first diagnosed with stage 3b. She did radiation treatments and they were able to get rid of the tumor. But the cancer metastasized to her right lung & liver a few months later. She's been on so many types of chemos for almost a year. Then she had an episode about 2 weeks ago due to cancer in her lung, she couldn't breather. They wanted to out a ventilator down her throat and she refused it. The doctors thought she was going code that day. A few days later they sent her to hospice.
Everyday has been a struggle since then....is there anyone that can share any similar experience?
