I just found out (well last Friday) that my mom has breast cancer. DH and I decided that we wouldn't tell the kids until we knew more about size, stage, treatment, etc… And that appointment was today.
My children are 7, 13 and 14. I think I am most worried about the younger 2. My middle child is very closed and doesn't like to discuss anything. She is already having a very rough year at school and I'm afraid that she will nose dive.
My youngest is very sensitive, and well, 7. He is the kind to really worry. He woke up today with a tummy ache because a friend was very mean to him at school yesterday and DH and I were asking about it. (Other kid's mom got a note home and then called me.)
If you have been through this, any advice? It's not enough that I'm worried for my own sanity, but theirs as well. I think they need to know, but…Answer Question
