Hi Sarah, Glad to see you made a post. I wish
that I could help you out with your questions. Reading
your post reminds me alot of my mother. She also
enjoyed visitors and calls and kept a positive attitude.
I was her care giver and still unsure of the type of lung
cancer she had. With my dad we had more time to
prepare for what was coming. With my mom she was just
having minor symptoms in Aug. 02 that had been there
for 6 months or so and the doctor blew them off as other
things. When she did get diagnosed in Aug. it was to late
it was in the lungs, kidneys, liver and neck. She tried
chemo but the oncologist said it was just for pain and it
would not help her to live longer. After 3 weeks of chemo
she said no more. She kept a positive attitude all the
way until March 03 when she passed away. I wish you
the very best and I am here if you need to just talk.
