Family and friends of former Gov. Kathleen Blanco say news reports of Blanco entering “hospice” are misleading, according to The Advocate.

Blanco is alert and visiting daily with family and friends at her home in Lafayette. She does not have a nurse by her side.

She is no longer able to walk, stated in The Advocate.

“We have asked for Hospice’s assistance as the cancer is progressing rapidly and would like her care to be in her home and in Lafayette,” Pilar Eble, one of Blanco’s daughter, wrote on Facebook Thursday morning.

“While it is progressing she is not at the end of life at this time, we foresee for many happy and life filled times with our mom. Our hope is for Hospice to be part of our life for a long time. She is going on outing when able and spending time with family. Please pray for her quality of life as we enter this phase of her disease.”
