Re: Mom's Diagnosis
I am so sorry that you have joined this group.. one of few groups that no one ever wishes to be a part of. Let's face it, no one would choose to ever know the feelings of someone you love having cancer... Reading yoru post brings me right back to the day I found out about my dad... I too went from crying uncontrollably, to being in what my mom and I called "a persistent state of being numb". So far, I've found that having to wait to find out what battle lies ahead, what stage the cancer is, what treatment options are, etc was the hardest part.. until you know what you're up against, your mind tends to think the worst. Now that we have my dad's prognosis, and he began chemo and radiation today, our thougths are focused more on managing his pain and maintaining his strength as much as possible to get him through treatments... we've agreed that there is not room for any negative thinking...
I know first hadn that there are people who look at the first day of chemo/radiation, etc, the beginning of something bad... my mom is an angel and gave my dad and I the perfect was to "label" today and each day from here on out... "One day done – one more hug, one more kiss and one step closer to being done…" Try to keep up a positive outlook and attitude... Your mom, you and your family are in my thoughts and prayers. Feel free to chat anytime! I'm here always!
