    Finally got a diagnosis for my mother; it is espohageal cancer. She is too old and weak for surgery or chemo so we probably should hope that her heart stops before it has time to advance too much. Hopefully, God has a plan.

    Sorry, Mutt. I hope she has access to excellent palliative care since she's too weak for the treatment. One day at a time, we're all here for you. Hugs.

    I'm so sorry Mutt. I know you mentioned her short term memory is poor. Does she grasp her diagnosis? How are you both? I'm hoping she is pain free and will enjoy the time she has.

    Mutt, I forgot to mention to ask Dr. for hospice. They are wonderful. They are not just for the end. It's meant for end of life care. My f i l gets hospice and it has allowed them to stay in their own home. An aide comes each morning, medications are brought to them, a nurse visits. They helped me with both of my parents at the end but they can be brought in much earlier. The goal being comfort to the patient and family and eliminating hospital stays. If she falls, you call hospice and they come to the house. They are the best patient care
    program I have ever seen.
