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 Ho****e, 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...
