Oh my gosh! This must be frightening for you. My father had stage 4 cancer 2 years ago. I did not sleep for three months I was that worried.My step
mothers mother has lung cancer. They are only giving her a year to live. My grandfather right now is fighting a stubborn bladder cancer that he can
not get any more radiation for. It is scary. I am sorry for your mother, your family, and you.
My father has been completely in remission for over a year. My other family members may not be as lucky. I was fortuanate enough to get to my
father and help him get to appointments and do his running around. My grandpa has my Grammie to help him. My step mother has her sister to help take
care of her mom.
The only thing that you can do is be there for her and hang on because it's a rough ride. You will know who your best friends are because they are
there to hug you when you need it. They are there to lean on. You need that. Don't keep your feelings bottled up. It will only cause you more stress.
It is important to take care of your mother in her time of need. But, to take care of someone properly, you must be taking care of yourself. Do not
forget to take a moment now and again to be your self.
