Quadrupletville, Texas
My sweet 86 year old mom has colon cancer and she decided not to fight it. She's been frail the past few years and I'm glad she will enter her new life on the terms that she wants. She just went under hospice and the nurses and the Dr. are amazing. My 91 year dad is taking it pretty well, but is somewhat confused on all the different meds she is taking. I am so proud of my daughter nurse (the quads mom) who went with me to help take care of "Sugar" this past weekend. My sisters are there during the week and I go on weekends. Prayers would be appreciated.

Thoughts and prayers. Tough to watch but our experience with hospice in our area was fantastic (considering...). Hopefully yours will be as well.

State of confusion
I am so sorry - sending my prayers as well.

I have a young friend, with a wife and 2 young children, that is going through his 5th round of chemo/radiation - they kill it and it comes back somewhere else in his body. He says this is the last fight he has in him - I can't imagine how hard it would be and what strength it would take your mom to make such a decision let alone someone in their 30's.
