This has been on my mind today and so just thought I would ask what your knowledge is on this or if you know if there has been a study done? Thanks for any information.

Such a shame I see no reason doctors would not load them down with painkillers; it really gets me that they can't see these people are so near death that side effects from pain killers should be a non issue!
So sorry for that but be glad she had her burial as she wished. That means much to people our parents age and it did my mom but the son who was trusted to take care of all that was on vacation and his mother's death was not bringing him home early.
That is what I thought hearing so much more about it.
Thanks for sharing all that Eric and I just said a prayer for you in Jesus name to not let this come back on you. Start drinking alkaline water or just one lemon squeezed in water every day, through the day. Suppose to be alkaline. I do that.

Tragic, but typical story. My mother was pronounced cured of colon cancer, but one month later x-rays showed that they had missed the cancer that had spread to the rest of her body. She fought this for 4 more years.
