My mother went in for a tumor biopsy on Thursday. She broke her femur while walking on Friday. At the er I kept yelling, " she didn't fall". I knew there was something wrong. The doctor listened to me though. He asked her about the breast cancer. They held off on pinning the break until get did scans. She has a amazing drs that we are happy with. The scans showed 3 infected lymphnodes and spots on her hip/spine/skull/shoulder. There were other spots of concern that would.not show up well with the contrast on the comp screen. The oncologist is reviewing everything before he gives a exact stage, level, etc.
I don't know what to say to her. I don't know what to do. I don't know how to help her. She is numb when it comes to it. She has lost 6 family members to cancer over the years. We have had long talks about what she wants and I know she doesn't want to lie down and take it. I know she knows better.
I have been trying to stay in touch with her immediate.family, but I feel like I am causing them undue stress.
I have been on the phone for.the last 2 hours finding hospitals she can go to. How does in home care work, etc.
I don't want her to go, but I want to make any time that she does have happy time! Even if I have to spend the next 10 years by her side telling her all the bad jokes that she likes :)
Cancer sucks and I hate it :(
