Doctor update

No good news from the doctors. 😦 Sadly, it’s just a matter of "when" not "if" but I always knew that. Her cancer is terminal, inoperable, and comes with a whole host of complications.

Ma could live the next two years or be gone by the end of summer. There’s just no way to tell. In the meantime, me and my husband are taking on the tasks she uses to do, like driving the kid around and laundry and such.

It just blows my mind that this is the second time I will watch a parent succumb to lung cancer. And neither my Mother nor my Grandmother smoked a day in their lives.

  1. So am I. Even if you’re not surprised, it doesn’t change the fact that it’s a harsh blow. Cancer is always unfair, but the fact that she minimized her risk by not smoking makes it especially so. 😦
