I read your post and was so touched and saddened by what you and your family are going through. I in almost the same situation. My mom, at age 55, was recently diagnosed with stomach cancer. The doctors found this out while doing a hysterectomy for an ovarian mass, which was thought to be benign. Little did they know that the gastric cancer had spread to her ovaries. We were hoping that they would be able to do surgery to remove part or all of her stomach, but after a gastrocopy, were told that it is inoperable. We are devestated as I think that would have given us a chance at survival.
My mom is expected to start her chemotherapy, which has been deemed pallative care, next week. I can't tell you how depressed I am and never thought that this would happen to my mom, who is the picture of health.
My experience with these posts is that people don't usually respond, but if you would like to, please feel free. I have found it impossible to find someone who is in a similar situation.
I will pray for you and your family and wish you all the very best. Remember that good things can happen when we least expect them to. Turst me when I say that I know how hard it is to stay positive, but we have no choice but to hope for the best.
