My mum has terminal lung cancer, has had a severe stroke and an endocarditis. She keeps pulling out her NG tube and is paralyzed on one side. She cannot communicate and keeps dipping in and out of consciousness.

Your mother is being cared for at home, is that right? Do you have a full hospice team coming in to help you?

The "how long question" is almost impossible to answer with certainty. It would be best if you talked this through with your mother's nurses.

Are you in the UK, by the way? If so, you can go to Marie Curie or Macmillan and call their helplines. I'm very sorry you and your mother are going through this terrible time.
