Know that its over now a yr (4/26/16).
Belated My Mom’s cancer battle
Back because she has lost it and it didn’t go as planned. I mean not just this, but during the whole process. Have to say now I was pretty much in denial with the whole thing. Even through I knew was suffering, but still thought it was less as severe as this.
Back again because I forgot to mentioned that she (right after she found) and she found from there that it showed she had BCRA2.
Then after both my twin sister and me were both tested for it. It only I showed that I was suspected to 2, but forgot if it was for ovarian and/or breast. I couldn’t remember and even after through all of the paperwork. Now, I really need to look into all (both conventional/mainstream and traditional/integrative) because I for one still have a love and hated relationship with both medicines. In regards to what happened to her and especially, in the end with her brain tumor. In which she never complained at all because she was always beyond doer and carer.
I’m back with even more.
Basically, she went back to work when she did (couple wks after). At first, it wasn’t a issue until this past wk. When one of her friend from college went into the hospital because of inflammation in her. Then, everything started to spiraled, spl (spelling) for her. Well, not for her work. In which she mentioned opened to doing the support group at Valley Home Care and she called. But hasn’t called back to found out more about. At the same time shes also showing signs of her moodiness as well. I have no clue if its general or something underline. In which she had a little cold again, last wk. By the way shes the maid of honor for one of her best friends wedding and everything that ideals. Her friend is like her with her mom’s cancer (breast) battle.
Thinks thats everything and well at least that I can both remember and think of.
Well get back to if I have anything else to add to this.
Back again with more whom she was and whom we are.
I for one prefer more of an integrative form of it. In which my mom, dad, and sister were brainwashed about it. Especially, more after the original diagnosis. Shes also a retired RN and she was one for 45 yrs. Of course my dad and sister still are. That also includes the rest of our remaining family and our friends as well. At least our family friends.
We found it was more aggressive than we original thought it was. Basically, its ovarian cancer and she was 1st diagnosed with it as stage IV back in 2008. She had she been receiving on, off, with a few recurrences in between. Then, last yr it came back in a form of a brain tumor and again she was treated for. In which we all thought that was the last of it because she went onto treatment after that. At the first she was a experimental drug, but then that didn’t work. So, went back her old treatment and then it all started from there. Even through after going to a doctor in the city. We have since decided to stopped all of it and go toward with comfort care. Shes currently a inpatient there, receiving treatment, and it appears to be working for her. At moment we are remaining cautionary optimistic about it.
At the same time I would love explore other volunteer options at Valley because I don’t know if I can continue with her old doctor because all of this.
Back because she took a turn for the worse sometime overnight or early this morning. My fraternal twin sister called my father and me father regarding this morning. Basically, this whole day and beyond has been a whirlwind for all of us.
Belated Waybeyondfedup worried about how my fraternal twin sister is coping with our mother’s death and especially over this past week for sure.
Its pretty much a mo now since her death and everything happened to leading up to it. sI mean we should be getting over the initial shock of it and getting back to normal. Well, of course our new normal. Have to say that I’m really not worried about my father about this because hes not going to change. Still I’m more worried about my fraternal twin sister more because shes more like our mom and that includes our dad as well. Whom takes care of everyone/thing before herself. In which I do get, but then don’t. I mean shes had her issues with certain things and etc. In which I’m not going into on here because whats the point of getting into on her.
Belated Back yet again with another hospitalization story with my both depression and anxiety.
But this time this was totally different hospital and experience.
Basically, it all started with my mother’s passing from her cancer battle a mo ago with a little meltdown, but still not a full blown one until this one. In which went to the loca hospital emergency room and also went for this past one. Then, lived with it off and on until a couple of wks ago with my period. Trying some new meds, vitamins, supplements (homeopathic, multivitamins, and supplements), but in the end none of them worked because they aren’t a exact science. It was also in combination of nervous about my sister’s live to work lifestyle vs work to live lifestyle. In which it drove me to first er and then hospital. All and all was pretty good experience expect from here to there.
Think thats it for now.
Thank you, again, in advance.
