How long will we have my mom?
My mom was diagnosed with bladder cancer on Nov. 30, her 84th birthday. At first they told us it was contained within the bladder but now it is way outside of it. Instead of living maybe one to two years they now say it will only be a matter of months as the tumor is growing pretty quickly. She has opted for no treatment and we will now be involved with hospice. How long will she be with us and when does the downhill slide start? Is it a peaceful death? How soon would she probably become bedridden? Now, even though this may be a tacky question...We have made a deposit to go with a group on a cruise in March 2012. Should I cancel our plans? Balance due soon.
