PC IN HOSPICE CARE


My step mother has had PC sence Feb.2002. She had surgery on her liver at that time. The cancer has 'Returned with a Vengence' said the doctor. She is in her late eighties. She was sent home from the hospital last Friday. Hospic care has been assigned. My Dad is also in poor health. I went and spent the weekend. It appears that Mary is a little weak but wants to do anything she can . I have retured to work. I am worried that I should have stayed. They wanted me to go. How do I know when I should return? The hospic people are coming every day, but are not there at night or weekends. I plan to return on Friday unless they call.
