Hi all, I am here watching Mom dwindle into nothing. She was and is a vibrant, happy person, but these days she's in a wheel chair and so jaundiced that it looks painful. She is not in pain and I thank God for that! She is eating less and less, sleeping more and more, trembling and trying to read the paper... I dont think she can read anymore, but goes about her routine. She is such a strong woman and it is so painful to watch her deteriorate like this. PC was diagnosed in mid November, the stent was unsuccessful and we are with hospice. I am so hopeful that it doesnt get any worse than this, but am wondering how long this goes on.... I dont want to lose her, but I dont want her to lose her dignity. Rosie
