    Contact a hospice in your area. They should be able to provide you with information and literature to get you through this.

    Just hang in there it is tough,just be there and be supportive. Also do things with her, like play cards or go through an old photo album. I am going through this with my mother so I know exactly how you feel. Oh and always always get a second opinion before starting treatment or surgery!!

    I lost my dad almost 3 years ago to cancer. The best advice I can give you is to spend time with her and tell her you love her-tell her anything you want her to know and ask her anything you want to know. In other words, make memories...

    I will pray for your grandma to make a full recovery.[​IMG]

    I lost my cousin to pancreatic cancer 2 months ago. She was 40 yrs old with 2 children. It took her in 5 very long and yet very short months. My prayers are with you.

    Hospice is a wonderful and highly informative place.
