I found this site to help me through the most sorrowful thing in my life-my mom dying with lung cancer. She was diagnosed a month ago, has had 1 round of chemo (gemzar & taxtere). She won't eat and has been so tired. Also her back back hurts so much. She is stage 4 advanced but didn't have any symptoms so we were shocked when the doc told us is was cancer (squamous cell) It has metatisized to her other lung and in the lymph node by her kidney. The doc said 6-10 months. Her kidneys are already shutting down. They are at 1/3 performance he said. She is 76, been active all her life, owns & runs a successful printing business with my dad. She did have a partial laryngetomy when she was 51 for cancer of larnyx. She did well with trach tube & survived that for 25 years. But I'm afraid her time has come.
I am so sad. I am 57 and oldest of 8 kids. We are all just devastated!!
Hopefully I can find strength through my faith and this site.
