So sorry to hear.....pancreatic cancer is tuff to fight I know,,,,just try to stay strong for your Mom!
I lost my beloved Mom last April....she was 85 and slipped away when my Sister was diagnosed with a rare cancer...suffered 3yrs in a NH....I had to watch her decline....every day I was with her until she passed. I never left her ...most days she never knew I was there.
(I fought to get her out for years but my older sibling had the POA and I could not continue the legal battle) It's tuff I know....
My beautiful Sister passed away 3yrs ago from a rare stomach cancer....( I think it's the same fight that Robin is fighting now) It is almost unbearable to watch your loved one suffer this way....
but you have to stay strong for them!!!
I'll say a prayer for YOU and for your beloved Mom!
Sorry to hear this news. I am not good with loss and still cannot cope with the thought ever losing my parents. My thoughts are with you and I hope she has much longer than the time given.
If only the governments of the world spent a fraction of what they do on arms, wars and frivolous things and put it towards medical research..well, I am sure we would have a cure sooner rather than later.
We do not train to be merciful here. Mercy is for the weak. Here, in the streets, in competition: A man confronts you, he is the enemy. An enemy deserves no mercy.
Thanks to all of you who have extended their good wishes and prayers for my Mom.
Just found out she has pancreatic cancer and won't be around much longer.
She's in he late 70's and has been told she has about 6 months.
My grandmother passed away from pancreatic cancer late last year at the age of 96. As tough as it is for me to say this, the best you can hope for is for it to be quick. My grandmother passed away after two months, and roughly a week after she was no longer the person we knew. You want to remember your mother as you knew her. As horrible as it is, it becomes about quality of life over quantity. I'm not a religious guy, but you'll be in my thoughts because I know how rough pancreatic cancer can be. Stay strong and cherish the time you have left.
I was reading an article this morning and thought of you. It's about saffron extract and how studies are showing that it destroys colon, lung and pancreatic cancer cells. There's a chemical compound in it that penetrates cancer cells, then "literally explodes, devastating the inside of the cancer cell", causing it to self-destruct.
I looked up more research and some doctors say that it can interfere with regular cancer treatment, but used on its own, it appears to kill cancer cells. Crazy, but worth looking into and discussing with your mom's doctor?
