Well, I was going to post a vent but it all of a sudden seems rather trivial. I am so sorry Reanie. It's a very difficult thing and it takes a support system - part of which you know you have here. Just love your Mom, plain and simple!

(About your pm's Reanie - you might need to delete your inbox and out box).

Oh Reanie, I'm so so sorry!!
There is a website that has members that are survivors and others that are going through this. Maybe you and your mom could check it out and see if it helps any to talk to people that have gone, or are going through the same as your family.
This is a link to the support group online.

Reanie, you dont necessarily have to take a negative approach. Could your mom possibly have an operation to remove part of her lobe that is infected? Could she then have chemo or radiation? Dont give up hope.

I just lost my brother last friday to stomach cancer. We knew it ahead of time, doesn't make it any easier. You know each one of us is going to go sometime, with cancer, it's just a matter of when. One thing I noticed, if you don't know when you're going (like everyone thinking you're going to live to 100), you put everything off. With knowing that Richie was going to pass some time this year, he did things that he wanted, like taking a cruise around the lighthouses or riding a motorcycle or quad-riding. :-)

I'm so sorry, Reanie. Try contacting the American Cancer Society. They have wonderful information and support groups.

sending you lots of hugs and prayers, Reanie.

Like others have said, love her lots and cherish the time you still have together.

None of us is promised tomorrow.

Michael W. Smith wrote a song that though it was specific to the Columbine incident, I think it applicible to many other situations, like this one.

"This is your time; this is your dance. Live every moment, leave nothing to chance. Swim in the sea, drink of the deep, embrace the mystery of all you can be. This is your time."

While the language is more intended for the person struggling, it is applicible to those loved ones supporting them as well.

Make every moment count. Recall the fond memories made, and make as many more as possible in the time remaining. Don't hold back anything, anything at all. Feelings, emotions, wishes, desires, and whatever else. If it can be done, and wants to be done, follow the slogan from Nike and just do it! Do whatever it takes to make it happen. The tangible material things of the earth fail, fade, and crumble, but the intangible things like memories last forever.
