    Shivany,

    Hugs. just wanted to tell you that the treatment that she is getting is the best. the breathlessness is a part of her problem. So do not be depressed.
    The best suggestion i can give you, is keep her happy, be happy, do not show your worries to her..be positive, make things around her be more positive.

    More than the pain, it is the inability to do things that make people feel more upset. give her simple things to do around her. do not allow her to talk more, exert more.

    play relaxing instrumentals that always keep your calm.

    Stay brave for her and do not ask questions like will my mother survive, the doubts can be sensed by her..so think positive.

    HAng in there..your mom is in my prayers.
