They don't know what is the primary just that is has moved to stomach & is floating in her tummy.  Right everything just seems so unfair. I keep reading everyone's stories of young healthy people getting cancer & that seems so much more cruel & i'm thankful Grandma has made it 80. It just doesn't make what she will have to go through any easier. She has been 3mths if we are lucky. She just wants to be home but it will require so much hard work. I don't know if i can do it but i'll try. Thanks for giving me a space to talk about this. Alice

None of us really know what we are capable of, until we have to.

I don't think that  there is any age where the dealing with terminal illness is any easier than any other age.

I hope that your Grandma's passing is peaceful and that she passes away knowing that she is loved.
