I Have A Mom With Stage 4 Lung Cancer..
I joined this group for support. When you are dealing with losing a parent its hard to face alone. Mom has Stage 4 lung Cancer, inoperable kind, which has metastisized to her bones. We are very close, since she had me when she was 18. She has been my best friend, and its hard to watch her die slowly. Everytime I see her, she grows weaker. I don't cry in front of her b-cuz she gets too upset. I cry on my hubbys shoulder at night. She was just diagnosed in February, was in the hospital twice, and now in a nursing facility. She lost 15 pounds in a month, and fell down at home. She lives alone, and is very independent. I can see the Cancer sucking her energy from her body. She looks like a skeleton, and her cheeks are all sucked in.. Saw her last night and hugged her, and didn't want to ever let go.. :) thanks 4 listening.. Sherry
