I have a co-worker who moved her mom to her home for now whiel her mom goes through treatment for the same thing. It had gotten in her lymphnodes and fears were mounting of it spreading fast. She's just over half way through treatment. Good luck! It's trying and exhausting, but with treatment there's so much hope!

I am so sorry to hear you are going thru this! That is awful. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family! Just get through 1 day at a time. 1 step at a time. Its horrible to know about how long she has, but at least you have time to say goodbye. I didnt get to say goodbye to my great grandma. I have heard that knowing makes it a little easier (even though a loss is never easy!!)
I wish you the best!! We are all here for you if you need anything!!!
Today my mother saw her ENT and received the devastating news that she has oral cancer. Thankfully I was with her, but I was too busy comforting her to even begin to deal with my own emotions. My mother is 81 years old and has several chronic conditions (diabetes, hypertension, congestive heart failure, and renal failure) and suffer a stroke in 2006 which left her mentally intact, but considerably weaken on her left side. For these reasons, aggressive treatment such as surgery or chemotherapy was not recommended. Her doctor suggested radiation treatment to reduce the size of the tumor so it would help with pain control, but only gave her 6 to 9 months to live. Right now I am too shocked and stunned to deal with the news that I will be losing the absoutely best mother on the planet in less than a year.
