| | Mom's still fighting
My mother has a rare form of lymphoma, it's in her stomach instead, she has it right now for the fourth time. She is not going through chemo anymore instead they are giving her pain meds, morphine, vicadin, and percasets. Her kidneys are failing cause of it and they cant do a transplant because of the cancer and now they can't do dialysis becuase theres an inoperable tumor on the kidney. She has a tumor on her spine which is causing her to have a hard time walking.
Along with Lymphoma she also has lupis, which is also attacking her major organs. She has already been experiencing rectal bleeding. The pain is so bad that not even her Morphine or Vicadins can stop it.
They found a tumor in her aorta which will be hardening soon and block off all circulation to her heart. Basically if the kidneys dont fail first, then her heart will give out first. I am having a hard time dealing with this, my mother was a single parent and me and my two sisters are very close to her.
After she passes, an institute is going to be paying $250,000 dollars to do research on her body to figure out what caused the cancer and try to see if they can find a cure. She doesn't want a funeral or anything she just wants us to throw her a party to remember her by. I am going to follow her wishes but I will probably be crying the whole time. I can't see myself going on without her, but I know I will.
