wondermom Posted December 3, 2007 Share Posted December 3, 2007 This week last year was when we got the dreaded diagnosis. Mom told me, "It's lung cancer." I just can't get those words or that whole week out of my head. She was admitted to the hospital and I think I knew, even from that moment, that something was really truely wrong and that our lives would be forever changed. That whole week that mom was in the hospital, if I wasn't there, I was waiting by the phone. Just waiting to hear the words. Something in me just knew even though I didn't want to admit it. It just seemed so unlikely that it could possibly be lung cancer. But it was. This week as I sit here and think back through the 9 months my mom fought, I so wish things could have been different. I wish I would have spent more time with her when things were good. When things were "normal" and we didn't have scans or treatments looming over our heads. I got so caught up in my own family life that I didn't take as much time to spend with my mom, who I love so very much. For that I will always be sorry. I just always thought we would have so much more time. A lesson I have learned the hard way. I am sure there will be many days or weeks like this one. This one is just hitting me very hard. Wednesday will mark the anniversary of moms diagnosis. The day that changed my family's life forever. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
