Good morning, (please forward this email to those children or grandchildren that are not listed) 

Granny’s Dementia/Cancer has progressed to the point that her… Doctor is placing her into hospice care. This request, is a direct result of mom being admitted to the hospital, but she will be released today. Here’s a brief history of mom’s condition, in 2016 mom was diagnosed with Dementia and since this August… breast cancer too. Mom has lost 20+ pounds, since August and the Dementia has progressed to the point that mom has no desire to eat or drink fluids. However, on occasions she will nibble (on a little bit of food) and/or sip (on a little bit of water/juice/coffee/smoothie or etc.). The Breast Cancer is in her right breast/lymphoid and the surgeon wanted to remove it, but mom’s children opted out of surgery (because of her age and condition). 

We (the children) accepted an alternative approach called-- Hormone Therapy medicine. Some started to questioned the medicine and mom’s lack of appetite, so at the family’s request the doctors reduced mom’s medicine to see if it was causing the lack of appetite, but it wasn’t the medicine. The doctors found that the Dementia (was moving fasting than expected) and mom’s inability to swallow correctly was at fault. We just found the inability to swallow correctly, after the Speech Therapist performed a swallow test on mom. Right now, mom is being made comfortable and I would advise everyone that can and want to… to see her. Hospice will be set up in mom house, so contact uncle Demetrus (he email is listed above or call him). 

If this is new news to you or just additional news, I’m sorry if we haven’t kept you all in the loop, but charge that to time not our hearts. 

Love auntie Jackie
