This forum has been the most helpful and supportive group since I started this journey 2 months ago. A few weeks ago I asked about one not eating. My mom is distraught that she cannot eat and she keeps trying even though it makes her vomit. I live in a rural area and I only see the hospice nurse once a week. I am confused if I should be trying harder to keep her alive. Maybe a feeding tube will help her get strong enough to heal. It seems like when we are vacillating between palliative care and hospice. It seems like the same thing.
