She had severe pain on Tues., Oct. 17, 2017, so we called an ambulance and we got her to the ER. Scans of her belly and neck were done which revealed a large mass in her right lung, compression fracture in her neck and 90% of her liver was covered. The cancer had already metasized to her liver, bones and brain. We were told 4-6 months at most and that she was not a good candidate for chemo as her liver was already 90% affected. Her decision to remain at home was honored and we contacted hospice. We thought we would have at least one more holiday season with her.
Unfortunately, she has declined rapidly in just a week's time. We have been told by the hospice team to get her affairs in order as soon as possible. We knew as well as we have been caring for her as a team 24/7. I am hoping to raise enough money to cover some of her funeral costs. We are meeting with the funeral home on Monday so that we can begin the heartbreaking process of planning our mom's funeral. Anything you can help with is greatly appreciated.
