I am extremely saddened to learn of this turn of events. I so commiserate with you, your friend and her family. It's already been two years and a week since I lost Fran, yet it seems as if that day occurred merely a week ago. I so hope because of the abominable amount of pain she is enduring that her family does go the Hospice route. Such was unnecessary with Fran because she was not in pain while conscious and when she did progress to that stage, she was gone within 48 hours, never regaining consciousness. Ruthlessboss definitely has the best advice as anyone familiar with this horrific disease would attest.
Your friend has been and remains in my nightly prayers and I will now add the request that her end of life no longer be so consumed with pain and will be peaceful.
