Moms surgery

Well, I finally got a call from my sister Kathie around 5pm. It is what we all feared.....my mother has cancer. :( The doctor said it is very bad, and what makes it worse is they can not pinpoint exactly where the cancer came from or what may have caused it. She will have to see the doctor again next week to talk more about the possiblity of starting chemo, but he even said that would possibly give her another 5 years, and that is only IF it works for her. They drained LOTS of fluid from the are where the tumor is, and they are hoping that was ease up the pain for her, but the doctor stated that would be only temporary and she would be in quite a bit of pain. So, that is where we stand at this point. When I talked to my sister, my mom was just going into recovery and she still didn't know yet. Damn......why the hell do we have to be so far away?!?!? Why can't I be there with her now....

I may not be able to update too much because my computer is starting to crap out on me. I will try and update as frequently as I can as I find out more info.......thank you all for your thoughts. They are greatly appreciated.....**hugs**
