    Awkward Card

    Kelly: your mother's 'friend' (and I use the term loosely) may not have contacted her since for some time, but you should take the high road and simply send her a note to let her know that your dear mother has passed and let her know the date she passed. If the 'friend' feels any remorse at the news it will be her problem and not yours. wendyr

  11. You can also try 'magic mouthwash' It's only available on prescription but the pharmacist compounds it. It's made of lidocaine, mylanta and benadryl. If thrush is present then nystatin can also be added. My hubby used it to numb his mouth, throat and esophagus during radiation. Good Luck wendyr

  19. Marci, It's pretty common for a lung cancer patient to 'take out' their anger and frustration on the one closest to them. In this case you're it. I had the identical situation with my own mother. All of her anger was directed at me as I was the only one there taking care of her.

    stupid question

    Anxiety and stress can do strange things to our bodies. That is a given. So the answer is yes. Your topic bothers me in the fact you have named it a 'stupid question.' Katie, there are no stupid questions, only stupid answers. God Bless wendyr
