quick background: My 52 year old wife was diagnosed July 2010 w/ inoperable stage 3b nsclc. May 2011 mets to brain (gammaknife to arrest..back on Dex) Dec 2011 mets to cspine vertebrae (raditaion and still on Dex). She's been on Decadron 8mg/day for months.
She's strong, but losing her personality. Quality of life low to say the least.
Not sure when to bring in Hospice, as she is also still on Alimta treatments, which may have to end if we go to comfort care only.
any advice? We're struggling here...
