Excellent information, Marion. Glad that you were able to work this out.
Something that the hospice worker shared with us during the last days of Kelly's life: it's the rule of 3's. You look for 3 things to coincide: (1) the patient stops eating, (2) the patient stops drinking, and (3) the patient stops urinating. Once all three of these coincide at the same time, and continue to coincide, the patient generally passes within 72 hours (3 days).
