    I have posted before about my mom having cancer. She has been in the hospital for about 1 1/2 weeks. They did more scans and thankfully the cancer has not spread. But she is in a lot of pain and mentally not really here with us due to where the cancer is. My uncle and I decided no more chemo and to put her in a facility with hospice. I am very upset but I know this is best for her. I am at peace with it but now it is reality. Make sense? Please keep us in your prayers.

    I have been thinking about you and your mom. Did you ever get to go on vacation with her? I will continue to keep her in my prayers.

    I'm so sorry... Cancer is a nasty, nasty disease. I've watched family members suffer with it. My thoughts are with you.

    Yes we went away for a few days in July before she started chemo. It was nice to be together. I have a picture of her and I together on that trip in her hospital room.

    I'm glad that she has something to be a constant reminder of your vacation together. Before my mom passed, she had planned to go down to the coast for a few days since she had not been in quite awhile. She never got to go, but when I went for the first time (I'm 27!). I just stood there at the water's edge looking out over the water and thinking of her.

    It is difficult to loose somebody, particularly somebody so close. I will pray for your family, that you are at peace with your decision, and that you are able to handle the inevitable when the time comes.

    Praying for you & your family. As I've read on a carepage about a child that was lost to cancer.... "CANCER SUCKS!!!"

    I'll be thinking of all of you in the days ahead as well.

    Thanks everyone for your thoughts and praters. We had her moved today. This afternoon she told myself and the nurse she said she wasn't ready to go and she changed her mind - we had already ,moved her. We said okay! we think it was about dying. She ate a bit and drank which are all good things:) Thank goodness for the pain killers

    My prayers are with you for you and your family and your mom. We just buried my mother in law 3 weeks ago, she had a very aggressive brain cancer. And yesterday I found out my dad has lung cancer. So please know there are many on here that know what you are going thru. We are here for you...a "cyber" shoulder to lean on. :hugs:
