    Wife has stage 4 brain tumor. It is in a place where surgery is not an operation. She is under hospice care now. The tumor is on the left side of her brain. She is unable to speak and now is unable to stand on her own. I have to help her with everything. She is now complaining of headaches. What ese should I expect to happen to her shortly.

      My sympathies are with you and your family. My brother was diagnosed in September with stage 4 glioblastoma; he did have surgery, radiation and chemo, without success. He is now in hospice at home. His speech and his balance are much deteriorated. However, as his world has shrunk, we have learned to live with his limits, and celebrate his good moments rather than dwell on what he can no longer do. Easier said than done, but to the extent you can, try to focus on the now rather than the past or the future.
