Ugh. Hospice was such a difficult transition to make. Like Geekgirl231 said, it felt as though we were giving up. In some ways, the dialogue pertaining to cancer is pretty messed up. We call it a fight or a battle which, although not untrue, means that if one decides its time to stop treatment and to live the remainder of ones life or shift to a palliative care focus, you are surrendering. I still have very emotional memories from the day we made that switch. Thank you for sharing this!
