Lisa O Posted December 3, 2004 Share Posted December 3, 2004 The last few weeks have been so difficult. One family member after another has fallen ill. My mom had a minor surgery and then had to fly to Arizona because my aunt had been in an accident which due to complications became serious.... bear with me... this has a point... My mom ran herself down and ended up in the ER where they took a chest X-ray. Of course it was abnormal which lead to a CT which lead to a 2cm ground glass opacity in the right lower lobe. They are going to try two weeks of antibiotics and repeat the scan. I scheduled the CT scan with a follow up appointment with my thoracic surgeon. My mom is a young vital 60 year old smoker. I am frightened for her because she is a smoker. When I went through lung surgery, my lungs were very healthy. She has emphysema from smoking. She is scared they won't operate. I don't know if my family can take both of us having lung cancer. My children are going through too much already... especially since I am stage IV. I don't know how to even process this. I know I am rambling. It has been quite a week and my scans are next week. It seems stress is a bit deep right now. If you are inclined toward prayers or well wishes my family could use those right now. Thanks Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
