7. Peggy is the best, to be sure

And to reiterate, you're not changing when your mother will die, just under what circumstances it'll happen, and I'd much rather go the hospice way (and am) than the traditional big-bills / sterile-environment / no-quality-of-life alternative. My quality of life isn't what it used to be, but it's a far cry from spending the next year in the hospital. I suspect that at the end you'll recognize it was the best choice.
