Re: Do I listen to my moms wishes?
I am very sorry to hear of your Mom's illness. I do agree with Sooky on the visit. Go now. I will say that when I was enduring cancer treatment and was very ill and weak, I didn't want visitors around. I needed quiet, peacefulness, you know? Didn't feel up to being social. However, that being said, I think a visit from you would ultimately be welcomed. It might be best to stay in a motel so your child does not have to be restricted to being still and quiet, but I would make the visit.
As far as any treatment, that really must be the individual's choice. I was still young (45) and strong and the chemo nearly killed me. I was scheduled for 6 treatments, but stopped after 4 as I knew my body could not take anymore. Although my cancer was in my thigh, I was actually given the chemo protocol for lung cancer. (long story) Really a harsh course of treatment. If Mom is already so very weak, she may just choose to live out her life in the most peaceful possible. I was glad when my family and doctors respected my wishes.
Again, I am sorry about the situation. I hope you are able to see her, love her, hug her and let her see the baby. Wishing you well in this difficult time.
