    My mom...sad news

    To disable ads, please log-in.

    My mom...has cancer for the 4th time and there is nothing more that can be done. Right now it is small, it is in the rib and her spine closest to where she had the two lung cancers. While she has been in pain for several months now, it appears to be small and they have no estimates about how quickly it might spread nor how long she has. I am holding off until after I move at the end of September to drive down there (finances), but if her condition changes I will go anyway and figure it out when I return. I've really no other words right now, but I am sure she would appreciate any warm thoughts or prayers you could send her way. We have never had a normal mother/daughter relationship, but in the end that doesn't matter.

    I'm so very sorry, Catrin. I'll keep you and your mom in my thoughts and prayers.
    Live with intention. Walk to the edge. Listen hard. Practice wellness. Play with abandon. Laugh. Choose with no regret. Continue to learn. Appreciate your friends. Do what you love. Live as if this is all there is.

    Oh Catrin, I'm so sorry. I was a little afraid to ask the other day. Hugs to both of you.

    Thanks everyone, I left work an hour early because I wasn't able to concentrate...though what on earth good I thought that would do is beyond me.

    Oakleaf - this wasn't unexpected, but I didn't want to bring a down note to such a nice dinner and company the other night. I was still being optimistic that she would get good news for a change!

    You are in my thoughts.
    Kajero's advice about taking care of yourself is the best advice I can give.
