Sorry to ehar about this, JT, its an unpleasant and complex condition. I understand what you are describin, including the feeling that you ought to say something comforting and can't think of anything. Actually, she knows she's seriously sick, and isn't looking for you to make all that go away. Just a short visit ( often visitors stay too long and tire one out ). and maybe some mild chat about what's going on in the world and in your life, so she doesn't feel excluded. But mostly, be prepared to listen if she wants to talk about how she feels, what she worries about, and so on.
I know from my own experience how frighteningly rapidly hospital bills can add up. ut your mom may really need someone to talk to her and find out how she feels and what's most worrying her. You can't help until you know what help is needed.
