      I see that the link was truncated. What I did was type Leukemia AML into google and found a number of site that offeredy symptoms, treatment options, etc.

      My mother, 88, was actually happy when the oncologist recommended against chemo for her pancreatic cancer. It can be hard to let go, but I wouldn't want to see her made miserable for her last few years. It sounds like you are doing the best possible for your mother.

      My mother passed away 11 years ago from AML at the age of 80. I was privileged to have been able to stay with her with the help of hospice so she could remain at home as she wished. Mom just seemed to get weaker. She used her time after diagnosis to "get her things in order." She made phone calls and said her goodbyes. It was a fairly kind death. She did experience some headaches, but we had morphine for pain and an anti-nausea medication. She went into a coma the last 24 hours then passed peacefully with my daughter & I holding her hands.
