33. My mom died of the same two years ago, age 86.

Like Mrs Bush she was in and out of the hospital several times, until finally they recommended hospice. She would be back in the hospital after about two weeks when her numbers would go bad again.

She also had dementia, so it was mainly her doctor's and my call as her primary caretaker. But it was for the best.

Once she entered hospice she lasted just five more days and went peacefully with the help of opiates for pain.
