Beth R Posted April 18, 2007 Share Posted April 18, 2007 Hello All, Just an update....my Mom completed chemo, and kept most of her hair. The bad news is that the cancer is in her bones, and 70% of her pelvis is gone. They are putting her on methadone now. Radiation is not doing much good. There are 2 Home Health Aides assisting my stepfather with her care. I go back to the Buckeye State on Sat. It is all so heartbreaking. How can this happen this quickly? In Feb she was walking somewhat, by March a walker, and just a couple of weeks later, bed bound and wheelchair. She does not want to know her prognosis, and my stepfather and sister and doctors are talking in "code" so to speak, because she does not want to know anything. She is very frightened now too. I am so so sad. I am scared to lose my mother. Thanks for listening. I feel so alone. (though I am not really, but yet it feels that way) I wish she was not in so much pain.
