Thank you everyone. My mom is not in hospice but she is in a palliative care floor at Princess Margaret Hospital in Toronto, Ontario. It is supposed to be a temp facility, but they won’t kick her out. The care there is phenomenal. Thank you everyone for all of your kind words.March 30, 2010 at 11:15 pm #36939gavinModerator
I am so sorry to hear this news about your mum. I went through this with my dad and yes it is very hard. But please, try to make the most of these days and weeks that you with your mum as they are so valuable and important.
I have nothing but good things to say about the care my dad got when he was in the hospice. They took the best possible care of him and made him feel as comfortable as possible. They took care of his every need and I know that dad felt comfortable there.
My thoughts are with you and your family right now,

Thinking of you and your family at this impossible time, your mum obviously has lots of love around her. Hoping she gets some relief and there are hospice or palliative options.

I am so sorry about this latest news. I agree with Pam, I don’t know what I would’ve done without Hospice. Mom was only with Hospice for 18 days, but they were available daily. And I know mom was happy and comfortable with their services. These next weeks are so valuable. Hospice told me not to worry about anything…it was time for me to be a daughter and treasure the time we had together. I took this advise, and have not regretted it.
Take care, Alie…these next weeks will be bittersweet. You are in my prayers.

My heart goes out to you! I’ve walked this same road with my Mom. You might want to explore and see if Canada’s Hospice and Palliative Care might be of help to you and your Mom. Here is the link: http://www.chpca.net/
Hospice was of great value to us during my Mom’s fight with CC. You and your family are in my heart and prayers. I know how hard this time is. Your Mom is so fortunate to have you with her on this journey. Please keep in touch as you can.
Hugs and much, much love,

Thank you everyone for all your well wishes. The meeting yesterday did not go good. Mom’s prognosis is weeks, I asked if that means less then a months and doctor said yes, she also added that it can also be days, however, she thinks it is closer to weeks. Mom doesn’t know the prognosis because she asked not to know, so we are all trying to stay positive in front of her. She is feeling very weak and dizzy right now. Her BP is 90/60, but we are unsure if that is related to the disease taking over. The doc said it may be so low because they just removed 5L of fluid from her ascites. It is hard to write this all out, but I wanted to keep you all updated. Thanks for listening.

I’m so, so sorry, Scraggles. I hope the meeting with the Onc went well today.
You are both very much in my thoughts.
