I'm not doing this to seek pity. I'm only posting this to tell you, my friends, what I am currently going through.
As of August, 2009, my mother was diagnosed with lung cancer. The only reason she found out was because a strange liquid had gotten into her lungs. This caused her to have a hard time breathing or doing anything that required her to walk a lot. The result came back...the doctor told her that the cells that they found in the liquid were cancer cells.
They said that they had caught them in time. Which they did at the time. She went into for chemo. Every Friday she had to go in to get her treatment. Her hair was mostly gone. By Christmas she had lost most of her hair.
The chemo treatments ended. Most of the cancer was gone. More tests..even more tests. Summer hit, they told us the cancer had spread to her brain. During the last few weeks of summer she went into radiation. She lost all of her hair.
In August, first day of school, she was sent to the hospital. She stopped breathing. She stayed into the hospital. Never went back to work. It is now October...she still hasn't gone back to work. She has anxiety attacks. She asked me who I was today. I held the tears back and tried to calm her down. I had to, otherwise she would not stop crying. She begs for my dad when he's not here.
So far this is it.
Also, the doctor guy who takes care of is going to explain everything so everyone is on the same page.Thank you for all the lovely comments. I read them all and even though I didn't reply I still read them. You guys are such sweethearts.
Socky sends you lots of love.
