Hello, my mom was recently diagnosed with cc stave IV with mets to the lungs. She is having trouble breathing, ascites has set in i think (very distended), sweating, high fever and severe restlessness. She is up all hours of the day really. On top of that I feel this real distance from here. I live in another state, so I can only communicate through telephone or email and web chats. She is relatively mobile, but I am worried the end is near...I was reading and marions had mentioned something about her mother withdrawing. Has anyone else experienced the restlessness as a clear sign of the end? She is not jaundiced. The ascites is the main concern. Can it occur in the face, legs as well? It seems all very sudden! Thanks you in advance for your help!
