My dad had small cell lung cancer. He went into hospice on a Friday and passed away on the following Tuesday. About a week before he knew his time was coming to an end :(

I doubt that anyone can tell you. The hospice staff may be able to share their observations.

In general, when a doctor approves hospice it generally means life expectancy is 6 months or less. But some people remain on hospice for a year or more, and some people live less than 6 months.

I wish you comfort on this difficult part of the journey.
