    Two years ago she was diagnosed with cancer, Tonight she's in hospital and it's not looking good. I just need some thoughts for her.

    I'm very sorry for your family and I hope that she is not in too much pain, though I'm sure you must be.

    Thanks peeps,
    She's in again tonight after having fluid drained off her stomach.
    They're talking palative care, I've been through this before and I now know it's just a matter of time.

    sad, so very sad

    Don't worry life is just a dream and death is just people waking up from their slumber.

    Care,for all is like a bonsai tree
    Thats not a reason to discard the value of the problems you and your have ,and making them invalid, nor is that the issue at hand. I sincerly hope for your mother that she will recover from this daunting odeal and hope she will suffer no to as minimum pain from all these operations ,and wish all the best and strenght and to the family and your mom to recover as soon as possibly.

    I stand stronger by this by if you give up ANY ANY SLIGHT MINOR showing of hope it will all start to collapse. My mother fell in her bathroom over a weekend when I was visiting and hit her skull on a sharp side of her bathroom sink counter. She then lied in bed crying. She is one of the strongest women I've ever met and it honestly scares me with what she can handle. But I found her in the bed like seconds after I heard her cry. She was lieing there and holding her head. Minor blood was coming from her skull. I started asking her simple questions to which she didn't respond or recognize coherent answers to. I called my father who works with hospitals and he told me to take her there ASAP. We got here there to find out she had internal bleed inside her skull. She had a 20% chance of life if she left her head the way it was, Or they could do surgery and cut a patch of her skull out and drain the fluid and screw it back. We went with the surgery and I thank whoever you want for the fact that she is recovering and is still with us today. As much as they say you don't realize what you have till it's gone. I feel that isn't true at all. I know how strong and amazing my mother is and I never doubted her ability to survive this once. I do strongly feel that in the hospital the human body is very socially adaptable in that it adapts to what it sees. If it sees everyone not happy or feeling strong about stuff the human body then reacts in a negative way. If it sees only hope and ideas of life after this mess then it stays strong. It also shows by being at their hospital bed as much as you can or sacrificing too, which I take my father very much for doing so. I never knew how strong my parents bond was till this event occurred and now I'm sure it is stronger than ever. I apologize for this turning into a rant of an event, but basically give your mother the love and care she gave to you as thats all she could ever ask for.

    Not sure where I'm going with this, but basically you seem to be in a deeper rut than myself, but stand strong. Give your mother nothing less than your love and caring assistance and fun. Be it on her hospital bed, walking around, or at home. She deserves the best.
