Thank you for your prayers Barb. I truly appreciate it. She didn't fully get what the Dr was saying to her. If the cancer is at her kidney region they won't bother operating on her lung. She kept on asking questions about her lung surgery saying no matter what she would not go to a nursing home for short term rehab after surgery like she did after her stroke. That her daughter(Me) would take care of her at her apartment(which is tiny, I am longer than her couch)because I am a therapist. That a nurse could come and look at her wound and do her blood pressure etc.... But prior to that her appt was pushed back 20 minutes when we got there and she was FURIOUS. Wanted to leave. I told her I wouldn't take her. She said she was going to take a taxi etc..... Then I went to the ladies room. they called her name, she went in with out me. Next thing I knew she came charging out the door past me and hoped on the elevator and the door shut. The nurse practioner came running out looking for her. Said she got mad as she came in the exam room to see her and take her vitals etc..... and the Dr did not come in as she had been waiting. It was a big mess. I had to go looking for her. She was out on the street sitting on the bench. She finally came back in. Then we were giving that news.

Needless to say I bought chips and dip last night and ate nearly half the bag. Haven't done that in over a year. But I tracked it.

My sister is away in NH for a few weeks. She doesn't help much anyways. They really don't have a relationship. They can go months with out seeing each other and some times talking. And my sister lives right up the street from her. So it is basically just me and I am exhausted.

Thanks for listening.

Barb.....I was very sorry to read the comment about the unemployment insurance ending for DH. I wish there were magic words to make everything all better. Sending you both good thoughts and hope something comes up and very soon.
Love, Mel XOXOXOXO
