I got a call from my brother on my way to work. He said Mom called him and wanted him at the hospital. She was put there yesterday because of the pain with her cancer. She told him that the doctors told her she only had months to live, but did not give a specific number.

I called her room after I got to work, and my brother had just arrived. She was glad to be able to tell us both at the same time. She said they were doing radiation to shrink the part of the tumor causing the pain, however, that she has 2 to 3 months left. Of course what do you say to that. My Mom put my brother on the phone, and we talked about the plan I have to visit later this month. That we are going to stay with that plan unless something dramatically changes.

I know this is going to be the last time I get to see my Mom, and I am gonna make the most of it with her. I hate the idea of seeing her in pain, since that is not the way I want to remember her, but it needs to happen.

I appreciate the great network of friends I have who are going to help me through this. It's gonna be tough, but I will get thru it.

Just give me hugs when you see me! :-)

My brother called me and told me that he talked to the doctor, and Mom must have mis-heard him. He said she has been a little incohearent.

The doc said that it will be some months, but are not sure just how long. It depends on treatment. He said definatly not years, but not the 2-3 months she spoke. So that is promising news there, and a bit of relief for my state of mind.

I look forward to seeing her this month.
