Last mom update for a bit....

The biopsy results aren't in yet but all indications are that it is cancer in the gall bladder (you would think that would be not too bad but nope) and the liver. It's not operable. So the plan is to get the biopsy back so see what kind of cancer it is and go from there. I don't think chemo will be an option for her (by choice) but I am hoping that she will do radiation. They are looking to get her home with me and then get some sort of treatment program set up.

Oh boy . It's going to be hard to live in this world without someone who has always been there. I know many of you have done it and are doing it now.

Cancer sucks. I lost both my grandparents to pancreatic cancer, my dad to lung cancer, and Mom has stage 4 endometrial cancer. Hospice has been fantastic in all cases.

Itís definitely tough.

I so sorry. My mom past away in June from liver/bile duct cancer. She went very quickly (10 days after official diagnosis). In the end, it was a blessing that she didnít linger. She was my best friend and itís devastating. Spend as much time as you can. I am so happy that I did.

I am so sorry to hear. We lost my mom to cancer a year ago.

Please call Hospice sooner than later. They have wonderful resources for both the patient and the family, including grief counseling for a year after. They are angels here on Earth, and bring such peace and comfort. You and your mom are in my prayers as you travel this hard journey together. Weíre here for you, we get it, and we truly care.
