Has anyone experienced their loved one being real full of energy one day and then the next just sleeps all day? Mom is 96 and dying of cancer we do not know what kind but it may be in her stomach. She had an Ultra Sound that showed spots on her liver that metastasize from another organ. She did not want further tests done and no treatment. She has been on Hospice for about 21 days now. I am blown away when she still eats a little but she always ends up throwing most of it up. She says it feels like the food is stuck in her upper tummy. She never remembers me, her daughter and then when she does she says oh you are my daughter. I know the Hospice nurse can't say if she is in the preactive stage of dying but has anyone seen this before. She sleeps at least 18 hours a day.
