WorryPosted: January 23, 2013
Right now my Mom is down having an MRI, which most likely will be the last of the big tests for now.
Yesterday, we got the results from the PET scan, and it showed the cancer has spread. It is in her bones, ribs, spine, hips, tailbone, and in her lymph nodes.
The MRI is to check to see if the cancer is in her brain. Apparently, the PET scan doesn’t always show the brain in full detail. After dealing with my Aunt’s brain cancer I think this has all of us very worried.
This just all sucks. So much. I can’t believe that this is happening.
I am worried about my Mom, but she has been in pretty good spirits, all things considered. My Dad, on the otherhand is completely shutting down from everyone but my Mom. He is a man of few words, but he is saying very, very little.
I can’t eat. I can’t sleep, and have had a headache for a week. I called my doctor for sleep meds yesterday, and I was still up all night.
Mea is worried about me, about her Nana, and I just don’t think she understands at all. Last night, we were laying in bed and she said, “I am worried about Nana, Momma.”
It just breaks my heart.
All of it. I can’t make this go away. I wish to God, I could.
