Guest inviola Posted November 25, 2003 Share Posted November 25, 2003 Hi to all-My mother in law lives in Florida and all her kids live in Wisconsin.She is 68,DX 3/2003 SCLC w/MEts to organs and has just finished 8 rounds of three chemo's a week three weeks apart. Her PET scan revealed something left in her lung where this all started,just a little left over tissue so she has to have 10-12 weekly treatments of chemo now,no radiation(this is what she tells us) but just one treatment a week every week. She tells us this is just a "mop up " and the doc assures her they will get it all! She has done really well with the chemo in the past until the last 3 treatments ,she got really run down but her spirits are high! My question is that her kids are all having a real attitude of denial about all this and planning next summer to see them, I am not sure they all should wait,they all know people with cancer and those that have gone home to be with the Lord, but this is a really close family and they seem to have a laid back attitude that shocks me. I am reading other posts about cancers that are gone today -here tomorrow ,literally. My husband is the oldest child and wondering if he needs to have a heart to heart with is dad about when they should come home for a visit. THey always wait until July, I think if she is done with chemo in February she should come home to spend as much time with us as she can while she feels well-I am afraid if they wait until July she may have recurrence by then .Concerned Daughter.
