    Thank you all so much. I check on her daily and try my best to talk about other things as she doesn't want everyone asking her constantly how she feels. I can see how that would drive someone crazy. I am always suggesting she take another trip or get out and do something fun but she rarely wants to go. I just try my best to do what I can and make sure she knows I'm here. She would never seek professional help for the depression. Never. It's pretty much up to me to help her with it. No one except my husband really knows the effect this has had on me. I try not to discuss it too much as my mom hasn't told everyone yet she is sick and no one else that knows really seems to understand how serious it is and of course I am always hopeful about the situation when we do discuss it. I'm just lucky to have my husband to lean on.

    My mom was diagnosed with NSCLC and was approved for keytruda. She has a small tumor in her lung and an even smaller, hardly visible one in her liver. Everything else came back clear. The keytruda will be her first treatment. What can we expect from this? Side effects? I know all cancer is different , but I would love to hear from someone who has taken it. Is it even possible this could shrink her liver tumor so they can operate on her lung or lead to remission? She is obviously stage IV so I know it is very serious and I'm worried about how much time I have left with her. My other question is, they never told her the size of the spots in her lung and liver. This may be a dumb question, but do the size of these matter at all or give any indication how advanced it is? She doesn't ask any questions during appointments so I'm trying to learn as much as possible. Thank you in advance for any help you can provide .
