My sister has colon cancer that has spread to all major organs. Put n hospice morphine drip she is not receiving food or water. What is life expancy its been 21
Hello, I have a lot of experience with hospice patients. If she is not receiving any form of liquids she will likely only live for a few days or perhaps a week.

It must be very difficult to watch.
