      Thanks for the responses. You all are right. I haven't said anything b/c i don't want to hurt feelings or get mine hurt. However I have asked her before and she acted as if she didn't want to so I said never mind. She did come over today b/c I called my mom on my break and she( my aunt) answered and she she was staying until 2pm. We talked and cried. She said I know it's a lot on you but I'm always here. She also said that her and my moms other sister would come with us on Monday. I told her that would be great. The last time we had a doctor visit it wasn't good. He said if this chemo doesn't work he's just going to make her comfortable. We just broke down and cried. I hope we get better results this time. Thank you all and please keep praying for us and I will return the favor...This has been a great place to laugh, cry, and meet new people. Thank you all again

      I learned after my cancer journey that people who said they would have helped didn't offer because I didn't ask! :( The challenging thing is that if we 'look' like we're handling everything, then people think we are even if we could really use and appreciate the extra help..I have learned to ask and then be prepared for a Plan B if help isn't available..I'll pray your aunts will be there for you more now and I think really they just thought you wanted to be the one to facilitate these appointments, etc..I'm so glad you all got to talk and cry together..it's important and very healing to do that..I surely will be thinking of you all and be sure to update!

      Jessica15, I'm sending you a huge hug and I'll be praying for you, your mom, and your family! We're in the same boat. My mom has a different kind of cancer, but it doesn't seem to be responding to chemo anymore. I understand needing to vent. I feel overwhelmed by trying to give her the best care, keep up with appointments and medications, working full time, feeling frustrated with my sister, and so incredibly vulnerable. I'm struggling with the same feelings and situations. I keep trying to look for the rainbows in the clouds. Just keep trying and remember that you'll always have the comfort of knowing that you did help your mother to the best of your abilities when she needed you most, and you are an excellent, loving daughter!
