Treebywater Posted November 22, 2004 Share Posted November 22, 2004 My mom found out this week that she has lung cancer. We know that she has a couple spots on her lung, it seems to have reached the lymph nodes, and there is a spot on her liver. She hasn't seen the oncologist yet... but I've read about the stages, and I'm pretty scared. Mom isn't 60 yet. I'm 23, and I'm expecting my first child. That, needless to say, wreaks even more havoc with my emotions on several levels. I'm also about 2,000 miles away from her and trying to anticipate how that will work into things and find ways to support her even though I can't physically be with her. Mom sees the oncologist on Tuesday, and we'll know more then, but I wanted to find a place to get some information and support NOW. I've read through some of the threads here and I'm feeling better about things than I have since we first found out. So thank you all already for being so encouraging. So... that's why I showed up here! I look forward to getting to know you all. You have already been an encouragement to me. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
