I'd be grateful for any advice. Mom has two types of cancer each with a poor prognosis though a timeframe has never been given (she has asked, believe me!). She has declined quite rapidly over the last week or two and is being treated for infections in hospital. She is still mentally alert though forgetful. I don't think she has processed how ill she is as yet. My dad died two years ago. Doctors have asked to meet with the family in the next couple of days and the nurse organizing it said it's up to my sister and I whether mom comes along. I don't anticipate there being any kind of good news at this meeting. So, should mom come along? My initial thoughts are of course as it's about her, but then I see her talking about maybe getting better, going on vacation etc. and I wonder if it's something my sister and I should do alone.
