My Mom now has pancreatic cancer.....husband Lung


Recommended Posts

I've read some of the anguish here lately..my heart goes out to you all, and my heart feels what you feel. Life just shouldn't be this way.

Larry is continuing to progress. We do a PET next Wed. and then him my Mom and I are off to MD Anderson from this war torn New Orleans.

Yesterday we got the final results of all her tests, and I didn't tell her until then just beofre the Dr. came in. My heart was breaking and she said she was so sorry I would have to go through another cancer...that is "just her"..she said it is in God's hands and we are praying for the miracle we all deserve.

I have done the same research on this as I did LC when Larry was dx. She has had major heart problems in the past and we always watched that closely knowing there was no cancer anywhere in our family. The tumor is very large in the head of the pancreas, so treatment is pretty impossible. Although we will do everything to keep her comfortable and do chemo and rad if she has quaility of life and chance of more years, if it will ust prolong a few months, then I will move her in with us and hold her close to the end.

I have never wished I could die in someone's place, but I do now. She is the rock of so many..giving unconditional love, being unjudgemental, always the first there when someone has a need without having to ask her. She is my best friend, always has been...I am an only child...When told this news, her faith stayed steadfast, I pray mine can... I had called family and friends to tell them right after Christmas to ask for prayer for her..They have come out of the woodwork from all over so far visiting, helping..she wondered why so many, but then thought it was the holidays.

Please, if anyone can direct me to a true support group like this one for pancreas..I have searched, but can't find one. Please keep them both in your prayers, as I do with all cancer patients and their families each night.

I pray for all of us, and for a cure to this awful thing called cancer.

Hi Stephi,

I am so sorry you now have another hurdle. I see how much you love your mom. I certainly know about mom's unconditional love. It has moved mountains.
