Brief Answer:
Severe waste loss, yellow eyes and severe pain!

Detailed Answer:

It is so difficult to deal with such a terminal disease condition. I pray your love helps her make the transition peacefully.

She would have lost so much weight, her eyes will become yellowish and her pain would really be terrible. With appropriate pain management, she may be spared of this. Make sure her pain medications are always served. Mentally, she might become agitated, delirious, disorientation and uncooperative. Hold none of these against her and show her all your love.

Again, I m so sorry for this difficult moment and wish you all the strength to carry on. MY regards to her, that if she can make sense of it.
