1. She uses the word hospice.
2. She suggests that now is the time for me to look into taking an extended leave from work.

(We are going to be consulting with a GI cancer specialist at a different hospital as well as looking into clinical trials. Also, if none of those options bear fruit, GH's oncologist is willing to give him a chemo drug he's been on before that has low liver toxicity. But the bottom line is that we need to be prepared for the worst. GH's oncologist has already consulted with many, many other docs and the chemo she's suggesting was helpful, but GH went off of it because it was no longer working. We'll keep trying and keep hoping, but it was a tough, tough day.)
