My Mom...

Well~I have not wanted to write this as I am afraid that my kids might see this but it is has come to the time that I need to share everything about the most important person in my life~My Mom..

2 years ago she was diagnosed with Lung Cancer and had surgery to remove part of her lung and thought that they had gotten it all.Well,she had to go back for tests and learned that the cancer had not only came back but it has also spread.So~she started chemo and that made her lose her hair and also made her so weak~tired and sick..But we figured it was working so she continued to get the treatments.But low and behold more tests revealed that the chemo was doing no good so now it was time for radiation. She had to go everyday for 2 weeks and it didn't make her sick or tired! As she would be there for 10 minutes and one zap and she was done! It seemed that she was getting better.

Yesterday we went to see her regular doctor and he informs us that not only was the cancer still present that it also has spread and that he wants her to have more chemo.She has until next week to make up her mind as he wanted to give her time to think it over with the pros and cons of chemo.And I know that she has to make up HER mind as it is not me or the rest of my family that can choose.This is her life and if she wants to not go thru all that again I will stand by her and advise the rest of the family to do the same.Do I want her to fight?!? You can bet your ass that I do but only she can make that choice...

I love you so much Mom and know that you will do what is right in your heart and I will be there holding your hand every step of the way...

  5. I'm sorry to hear about your mom. It's not an easy decision that she is going to have to make. It's wonderful that you are there to support her in any choice that she decides to make. It's going to be difficult for her and she will need you.

    My thoughts and prayers with your family.

  6. Yes~this is a very hard thing to go thru and I am trying to cope the best that I can..She did start chemo on Friday so that is one good thing!! We will wait and see how she does with this one as he said it was mild and that she shouldn't get sick so keeping my fingers crossed that it will help her at least so she is not in pain.

    Thank You All So Much For All The Kind Words and Prayers!!
