I know how your feeling right now............my mom was diagnosed Nov. 19th 2003 with Stage IV Lung Cancer that had spread to her bones....she ultimately passed away 2 months to the day she was diagnosed. She'd been diagnosed with a rare form of cancer the year prior and was given a clean bill of health only 6 months prior to the terminal diagnoses.....thats how fast the cancer returned and spread like crazy.

For me personally, I moved my family in to my parents home and cared for her around the clock. It was the hardest but rewarding time of my life. I can tell you it was a true test of my faith and strength. I still can't believe I got through it but by the grace of God I survived.

Now is the time to talk openly with your mother about things you've always wanted to say or know.

I'd lost my brother suddenly 10 years prior to her death and I wasn't sure which was harder...........not getting the chance to say goodbye or watching my loved one suffer. In the end I thanked God for letting me say my goodbyes and giving me the strength to care for her.

Stay strong and lean on your family and friends for support. Don't think you can handle it on your own. I tried and it about broke me. If you need to talk please feel free to pm me.

I'll pray for her and for you and your family.

Irene (Reanie), I will continue to pray for you and your dear mother. What Sizzlin said is great advice, " now is the time to talk openly with your mother about things you've always wanted to say or know". I wish I had done that with my parents. May god bless you and your mother during this very difficult period in your lives.

I just wanted to say Thank you again to all of you. My mom has been very tired and as to be expected depressed. She is going for a CT/dye scan today..Then depending on these results either surgery or chemo - My mom is a breast cancer survivor so hopefully she will beat this as well - Please keep her in your thoughts and prayers!

Your Mom

You got it Reanie. Have had her in my prayers and know she is in good hands. As long as you are near she will feel good. I have to turn things over to God as He knows best what is needed. I ask that He walk w/both of you today.
