Dear all,
I have posted sometimes here but everyday I read all and always has been usefull for me as a care giver of my mom to learn something from you.
After 3 years and 7 months of fighting with the beast now she is not good ,even she couldn't tolarate to have Xeloda+Avastine and the Onco suspended the pills.she doesn't eat,drink and has confusion.
she sleeps so much and just I pray for her not to suffer more than this...

    Melody,
    I am so sorry to hear that your mom is not well. I wish I could take all your pain away. It's hard to see the ones we love fight this horrible disease but I know that with you by her side it's comforting. Have you thought of having hopsice come in and help. I've read many post that have mentioned that hospice has been a godsend. You and your mother will be in my thoughts -Melissa

    So sorry
    Being a caregiver requires great strength and courage. Your Mom is lucky to have you by her side.

    As much as we wish for it to be different, there comes a time in everyone's life when it becomes difficult to fight.

    Hospice can be of help to not only her but to you. It doesn't mean either of you should give up, but they can make sure that she is not in pain and take over some of the personal care which you must be giving her.

    Prayers for you both during this dificlut time.

    Marie who loves kitties

    I do hope she gets better. You know when I was on chemo, I made sure that I got out of the bed even if I only made it to the couch. For me, it was so important to get up and make myself feel alive. Going to work helped keep me going. I don't know how bad your Mom is but I hope that it's not too serious. Maybe, helping her by reading to her, conversing, keeping her cool, and just trying to get her as active as possible.

    I know you must be tired and feeling stress yourself, please remember to take care of you too.

    Hugs!!

    I know that she is in a better place now.

    We try to give her more calm with staying with her and talking about the good things.She has confusion and this is painful for us.
    She is not in pain and sleeps so much,hope that would be in peace untill the end.
