Thanks for your advice. Actually i hope to be still in time for something. Mum was feeling very bad this evening and yesterday as well: lot of pain this night and sleeping all day today. She is extremely thin and did not answer in a meaningful way to my questions. Could not speak much...Mum has always been a very lively intelligent woman. I could not recognise her in these conditions. Tomorrow she will have a blood transfusion and I will be with her. It's heartbreaking. I feel it is too late. Never seen her like this. Is she just starving? Is it the cancer or the morphine? She is in these conditions only after she was given fentanil. Or Is this the way one dies? I am so desperate and angry about the way her case was managed!! Docs have been refusing her TPN now, after having given it toher when she was still actually eating normal meals. What is the sense of this??? I am greatful to the peple posting on this board who seem to be the only reasonable and caring people I have come across during this nightmare of my beloved Mum's cancer! .
