doctors say its too late - cancersux87

Oh No Associated with Small Cell, Lung Cancer. Posted on June 29, 2012 View this journey (31 Experiences)

My grandma whom i made this page about called 911 at about 430 this morning and is now back in the hospital. Doctors are now saying that its too late for any further treatment and are suggesting hospice care. I don't know much of anything about that other than that they set a person up there basically to die. I have 3 small children living in the home too. and I'm completely breaking down. My entire family has turned their backs on me just like they have done my entire life. I have 0 support. My grandma doesn't want me to be alone and everyone who could possibly help me says no. I've been having anxiety attacks all day. And I'm not sure if I can handle any of this anymore.
