    Hi. Sorry to hear about your Mum. My partner has just had a terminal diagnosis on diabetes which is out of controle along with numerous health problems related to that, He is in denial and its a very tricky one. I agree with your u your u should respect her wishes BUT you are looking on it as a daughter and not,a husband who is facing loosing the woman he loves. He wants her to do everything possible and she doesnt want to. Tricky but I have actually decided and said to my partner today its ok to have no more treatment its your decision. Yes u poor father must be in emotional agony , as am I, so treat min with kindless and love and try to slowly help him to see what Mum is choosing is her taking control of a situation of which she has no control. Does any of that make sence? Have courage to cope .xx
