Really good. She said that once they took out the drainage tube a lot of the pain was gone. I am fixing some dinner right now.

Lisa - I see by your status that your mom came home today. How is she doing?

We don't know yet. They are thinking about letting her come home already. They lung has already sealed itself off & it is not draining anything more out of it.

Hi Tina,

Hope your mom is OK. Will she have to go through chemo or radiation?

You are in my prayers.

Dianne

HOPE is not pretending that there's never any sorrow - It's the knowledge that our troubles will be overcome tomorrow. It's the inner strength we call on to sustain us now and then, till our problems lie behind us and we are happy again

My mom just had a melanoma removed from the center or smallest lobe of her right lung this morning. They had to take the whole lobe.

I'm so sorry to hear that. Thank you so much for the prayers and for being there.

It's hard to find someone to talk to when you don't know how you should feel. And when you don't want to burden others with it.

But it's great to know that someone else is there who has went through the same type of situation!

Good morning, sorry to hear about your step mom. Hope chemo & radiation can stop this disease in its track. My dh just died (June 2012) from lung cancer. He was not able to received any treatment due to underlying illnesses. For him, one of the good things for him is that he did not suffer except at the end when the lung cancer got into his bones.

If you feel you need to talk, I am a willing ear. My prayers are with you.

Dianne

In the past month I found out that my step-mom has lung cancer. She is my mom as I see her. I am 24 years old and her and my dad have been together for 23 years. My real mom was never there for me. My step-mom is my mom and best friend.

Today we found out that it has spread to her brain. Within the next week she will start chemo and radiation.

I'm just so worried and need somewhere to get advice, help and vent.
