    Cancer has spread/Metastasized

    Oh No

    Feeling extremely sad and need to vent. Good Morning Everyone. Well these past couple of weeks have been very difficult for my family emotionally. After my dad's passing in August (small cell carcinoma), my mom has taken a turn for the worse. She has gone from being a vibrant, energetic, woman to immobile, needy and depressed. Her most recent CT Scan showed the cancer had metastasized and now its in her left lung and there are nodules in her liver and lymph nodes. As if that weren't enough, she recently had knee surgery and it has really taken a toll on her and my family as well. We try to stay positive and encourage her to keep fighting, but I can see how tired and sad she is. I wish there was more I could do for her to keep her spirits up. This has affected our whole family (One brother and One Sister). Personally speaking I feel so helpless and wish I could do or say something that would restore her will to keep pressing forward. I tell her how much my family needs her and how she needs to stick around. I put up a front when I'm with her and I'm all smiles and positive...but inside I just want to scream. I don't know what else to do. I cry at the drop of a dime when I'm alone and I don't feel like I deserve to have joy in my life with my mom feeling so bad. It's affecting my kids and husband because they see how all this has changed me. I'm just not ready to lose my mom. I'm sorry for being so "negative" today but this is my only source of outlet. I pray GOD renews my faith and restores my broken heart. Its all I can do.
