My mother is on a new diet.  Liquids and morphine.  She is still living on her own with one of my nephews and she will die at home when the time comes.  There will be no i.v. treatment if and when she becomes dehydrated or malnourished.  There will be no hospital visits or surgeries.  I pray that when things get worse, she slips into a coma and does not feel the end.

I'm so sorry for you guys - we will hold your Mom and your family in our hearts and prayers. For many years Marie worked with patients in home health care - those for whom healing would not mean a cure. In some ways I'm just a little proud of your Mother choosing to face the end with dignity and on her terms.

Wish there was more we could do for you - prayers and hugs -
