My Mom is on Hospice. She hasn't has a bowel movement in two weeks, her urine is dark, she's bed ridden and wears a diaper. Mom drinks very little (Sprite) and sleeps most of the time. She's probably 70 lbs now. It's sad watching her waste away. How long can she survive like this?

That is always very hard to predict. The hospice nurse can probably give you the best guess at this point.

And, yes, this is extremely hard to watch. Hugs to you.
