Hi I'm new. My Mother In law was unexpectedly diagnosed Easter 2017 with Brain cancer. We then went on to find out that it was terminal secondary cancer. She had the tumour removed and then followed on with radiotherapy, which then followed onto chemo as the tumour was in her lung and spread to the adrenal glands. This week has been hard on the family as my mil is all my hubby has left from his family apart from me and our 2 daughters. I've currently got flu and can't go near and it's hurting me. She's been having excruciating headaches and is unsteady on her feet, her GP prescribed morphine for her last Thurs, and they would come out at some point today, but she was being sick with it so was waiting until she was in pain before taking the morphine. Now on slow release tablet and palliative care was spoken about, to which we are now waiting to hear about. I feel s if she's went downhill really fast this past week or 2 and not even sure about Christmas.
Update My Mother In Law passed away peacefully on Wednesday 22nd Nov at home.
