I’m sooo sorry! Do you have a grief counselor you can talk to? Ask the hospice people to refer you to someone. You are essentially your mom’s caregiver and they should be able to help you through the coming months. Why not also contact The American Cancer Society? They should have groups that meet around the country. Also, try the Meetup Groups in your area.

I can’t imagine what you and you’re mom are going through. I’m soooo sorry!

I lost my sister in July and when Hospice came, she was with us for only 5 days. Spend all the time you can with your Mother and let her know how much you care and love her. Have the Chaplin come everyday, it’s very comforting to have someone to talk to and pray with. I feel for you and know everything your going through, it’s not easy but try and be strong for your Father. Family needs to stick together in times like this. God Bless!

Hospice should have some resources available to help you cope with this awful situation. Ask the hospice nurse if your family can get some counseling. As for the rest, only time can heal.

I am sorry for your mother’s illness. I hope that she passes peacefully and comfortably.

Well you know you need to focus on making your mom comfortable now.
This will be a hard time but don’t make it about you.
She needs 100% support right now.
You will have time to grieve later.
Jog , read , pray, anything to help you cope.
But focus your energy on her would be my advice.
It helps the healing process later.

Edit: one of the disadvantages of asking on here is you get pr!cks like that Jessie answering. Ignore the ignorant.

try and keep her comfortable and happy in her final day’s…..the kemo is what made her worse… if she would have seeked natural healing… she would of lived allot longer. It’s still not to late… if your family has the means… then i suggest trying to help her through natural healing.. I personally know dozens of people who opted not to go through the tradition kemo and go through a natural healing process.. and are cancer free now.

good luck
