My Mom has had carconoid cancer for a couple of years. She was dx with end stage liver disease 3 weeks ago. Yep, she has lung cancer, and never smoked. Cirrohosis of the liver and never drank She was put under hospice 3 weeks ago.
My problem is this. She is obsessing about her death and her funeral and it's breaking my heart. I can't not imagine life without her I personally think it's because for once in her life she is feeling like she has very little control over anything.
Her will is in order and her funeral is planned right down to what undies she wants to be buried in. I told her a couple of weeks ago that after she finished planning everything please lets just put it up and enjoy living for what ever time she has left.Apparently she didn't get this because she is still obsessing about it and it's just killing me. I know that she needs to talk about it, but I jut can't listen all the time. She does have some dimentia (sp?) and it could be that too. I talked with the hospice workers and they felt like she needed to talk about it. She can see that it upsets me. Any suggestions? Please?
