I guess that about says it all. M-i-l was diagnosed just after Memorial Day..stage 4, small cell lung cancer. It has, obviously, been all downhill from there. She has been on oxygen since that time. Now, she has been in bed, 24/7, for close to 3 weeks. She doesn't get out for any reason. Her eating has stopped....swallowing is too difficult if not impossible. Her sons are with her, talking to her, holding her hand. She does have care around the clock, at home. She hasn't had solid food for close to a month...she was getting down Ensure and healthy slushies. Now, not even that. The aides give her frozen juice, mashed up (like a slushie) by spoon. She had a few spoonfuls a day. Now? Nothing for over 24 hrs. She is asleep almost all the time, no conversation is being had. So very sad. So...we figure the end days are here, and will most likely head down tomorrow to join the rest of the family at her side. But, I guess my question is, is there anything special I should expect, or that I can do to help her?? Probably not, but figured it was better to ask those who may have been through this already. This has been the summer from ****...first her diagnosis, then we had to put our 11 y/o golden down, my dd went off to camp to work, then she left for college last week, a very dear friend had a massive coronary and died over the weekend, and now m-i-l will most likely be gone in a matter of days. I just can't wait to put this summer away!!!! My poor dh has lost his dog, his 'little girl' has gone away, his friend and mentor is dead, and his mother is almost gone. Poor guy!!!!
