So mom's got the big bad "C"... she had a rectal bleed a couple of weeks ago that sent her to the hospital for a nice 4 day stay and a couple of blood transfusions. The colonoscopy did not give us good news and since then it's been a wild roller-coaster of ups and downs.. good news then the bad. She had surgery to remove the tumor and half of her lower intestine last Friday - along with some lymph-nodes and some of her abdominal wall because "it" had diseased that area as well. They got it all - great! ... what they can see of it anyway. So she's on the road to recovery when off to ICU she goes last night where they discover that her blood-oxygen level was 50 because of 5 nasty little blood clots in her right lung... that took about 12 hours to diagnose and 2 years off my own life with the family "dynamic" (sisters, we just love fighting with eachother). I'm at work this morning and my sister calls to tell me that the doctor wants all family members together for a pow-wow asap up in ICU. WELL! ... there went another 2 years of my life. But it turned out to be good news - after they left us to sit and wonder about why he wanted all of us there together. I am SURE you can imagine THOSE conversations! I digress. So pathology came back today and along with 75 percent of the mass, 5 of the lymph-nodes were cancerous, they removed 19... so I like those odds. She'll need chemo though, and wants me to cut off all her hair to donate before she starts treatments. I know that I have friends here.. and I know that ya'll would have been praying if you had known.. all I ask is that you pray (to whomever you do) for no more bad news. For a little while anyway. <3

Quoting: Originally posted by kewanna2007 AmuseMe... I am so glad to hear the wonderful news on your mom! I pray that God will continue to give her the strength to make a full and speedy recovery. I lost my dad suddenly on April 13th to cancer (he had it for a year and never told us). I have been devastated, but I am so glad to know that you had a happy outcome.

Oh, I am so sorry to hear that! I am sure my mother would have hid it had she had the opportunity to. Again, I am deeply, utterly sorry that you have lost him this way. ... thank you, for your prayers. You are in mine now.

Blue, Nat (Aimee?), True, Jiggle, LadyHawk (Jersey? lol), ND, Mel, Kewanna, Wylde, tom, butter, loungeness, stacey, Lonely (Legal? lmao) and last but never least, Ms. Honey. Thank you for all your prayers, they were surely heard. Mom just had her last chemo treatment last Wed. and she is doing phenominal! She got through her treatments with very little side effects and her hair is even coming back brown :-) We have a great support system here when anyone needs a prayer, a thoughtful insight or just a good listener. You guys are all awesome, thank you.

Sorry about your mother, Amuse. She definitely will be in my prayers. Remember, that once you give your problems to God, it is in his hands now. I pray for a wholesome recovery for your mom and peace between you and your sisters. God Bless.

I'm sorry. It's really all I can say, or anyone, for that matter. I hope she is feeling a little morelike herself soon. And kudos to HER for going through all this, in the first place. Tell her, THANK YOU for thinking of OTHERS (the hair donation) in her own time of need. Love and hope, True

AmuseMe you and you family will be in my prayers. I know what a blow to the emotional state the worry of cancer can bring. My dad had Prostate cancer. First when I was 10. He fought it once for two years successfully.It came back about 3 years later.Because of other problems. I was distant from my father. As I now get older I wished I would have taken the time to enjoy what time he had left. But I was bitter of the past problems. So enjoy what time you have with her.

HUGS to you. I know how hard it can be when a family member is sick or in poor health. It sounds like she, as well as the medical staff, are positive about her prognosis and that is what is most important!!!

Amuse... I will definitely put your mom on my prayer list. Just put her in His hands and let Him do the rest. I will also keep you in prayer because I know (from experience) how hard this can be on you. We are here for you!
