Update on my mother

So, the doctors have finally given us their diagnosis: My mom has stage IV lung cancer. This is what I pretty much expected to hear, given how the cancer has spread. As of yet we have not been told whether the doctors feel that she can handle chemotherapy. She has been doing better. She eats more and is able to communicate easier. However, this improvement does not mean that she will live for very long. I will keep on updating you all as I find out more.

I am glad to read that there are small nuggets of goodness in your report; it's great that she is eating more and finding it easier to communicate. I know that you will be spending as much as time with her as possible, and of course, I will keep you and your family in my prayers. My Nana died of cancer when I was 19 so I know how hard this disease is.

Take care.

All good thoughts your way. I have had to confront some unpleasant health things regarding my mother, and I was very surprised at how upset I was. Given that we all know these days will come upon us, I suppose we all rue the day we wanted to be treated like grown-ups.

I know you weren't expecting great news, but I'm sure it still must be hard to have this kind of thing confirmed. And to have to plan for it. Glad to hear you'll be able to make the best of this time with her though -- not everyone gets that chance.
