Hospice care will give her the greatest COMFORT for her last days, while the hospital will just stick her with needles!

Seriously, if she still has strength left to fight, take her to a doctor ASAP. Heart failure is very treatable. But keep in mind that the kindest thing might be to "let her go home to Jesus."

If she is coughing and her lungs sound crackly, she needs to see an MD or get to the emergency room. Your other choice is a Hospice evaluation, they will tell you whether or not she is eligible for care.
