It's been a long couple of weeks.

About three weeks ago my mom was diagnosed with renal cancer.  She battled breast cancer in 1999 and ovarian cancer in 2001. We had all really hoped that after 7 and 5 years clean she wouldn't have problems for at least awhile. Unfortunately not to be.

There is also some sort of anomoly to do with her bones, but we don't know what yet.

She had her left kidney removed on Jan 3rd and I stayed in the hospital for the whole time she was there. We came home mid day on the 6th.

We get the pathology on the kidney on the 12th and then we find out what else needs to be done. If it hasn't spread then chemo shouldn't be necessary (and the surgeon said he didn't see any signs of spreading). I suppose then we also find out what next has to be done about finding out what the anomoly they saw on the mri and bone scans were with her bones.

Just wanted to let everyone know what's going on and at least part of why I'm not around much at the moment. I am physically though not as much mentally.
