    Oh No (doctors say its too late): My grandma whom i made this page about called 911 at about 430 this morning and is now back in the hospital. Doctors are now saying that its too late for any further treatment and are suggesting hospice care. I don't know much of anything about that other than that they set a person up there basically to die. I have 3 small children living in the home too. and I'm completely breaking down. My entire family has turned their backs on me just like they have done my entire life. I have 0 support. My grandma doesn't want me to be alone and everyone who could possibly help me says no. I've been having anxiety attacks all day. And I'm not sure if I can handle any of this anymore.

      I am so sorry you are going through this. We are here for you and even though it's only virtual, we do support you. You are not alone.

      There were a few discussions about hospice recently, here is a link to those discussions. It might help tell you what hospice is all about:

    Oh No (Pneumonia): pneumonia is the reason how she was originally found out she had the cancer. docs aren't making sure the pneumonia is completely gone. so it seems to be affecting her treatments or something. she's had the pneumonia now for 6 months. why cant they get rid of it.

    Oh No (looks like treatmeant is not working!!!): doc says the scans look almost exactly the same. Not seeming to get any better. And she keeps getting pneumonia and ending up in the hospital every time we turn around.
