Hi there! I merged these two posts so folks would be able to find your comments easier. I wanted to tell you that I am glad you decided to join us! You didn't say how long your Dad was ill or when he passed...It must have been hard on you! Cindy

Hello, my mother is in the final stages of his awful illness and the doctor told me that the medical opinion is that she will only last maybe another week or two. Obviously we are all pretty scared and offering our love and support ever day in between working. I was wondering what will happen at the end? Will she slip into a coma and die peacefully? I can't find too much information about the end of this illness. Any help with my question is greatly appreciated.
