HI there, I just read your post and felt like you were me writing this message. My mom is my very best friend, we see each other daily and talk at least twice a day. she was diagnosed Aug 2007 with lung cancer in one lung. she has 2/3 of it removed in september and then under went chemo and radiation. all her scans were coming back normal and fine. She even went back to work in July of 2008. Right before her last scan in Nov she hurt her shoulder pulling up her pants. they said perhaps arthritis and bercitis. although she is on 57, it wasnt cancer is all I heard; so great... Her scan said the cancer returned in BOTH lungs and spread to her liver and in that shoulder. I am devastated and pregnant, also have a 2.5 year old that adores her "ma" (thats what she calls grandma) so i am on the verge of losing my mind. They are going to try chemo again and then with best hopes maybe shell go into remission. if not I am not sure what comes next. all i know is that i cant imagine life without her for one second. I came to this site looking for support also. I am so sorry to hear your moms run out of options. Is she comfortable? did they give her a time line? if you ever want to chat my email is
Best of Luck. please write back... Tammy
