Edwards was hospitalized last week and received treatment, but doctors have told her that she has only a couple of months left of life.
John Edwards and her children were at her side as well as other family members.
Elizabeth Edwards is not in pain and is in good spirits.
Edwards posted on her facebook page the following message:
"The days of our lives, for all of us, are numbered," she wrote. "We know that. And yes, there are certainly times when we aren't able to muster as much strength and patience as we would like. It's called being human. But I have found that in the simple act of living with hope, and in the daily effort to have a positive impact in the world, the days I do have are made all the more meaningful and precious. And for that I am grateful."
