My mom told me a week ago that she had lung cancer just one little spot on her lung and it was touching her lymph node. My mom is 55 years old owns a real estate company, like super mom. She got really sick this week and she finally permitted me to speak with her oncologist to find out she is in stage 4 and it has reached several organs and a few spots on her brain. Im just sick, I don't know what to do. Im 30 and my brother is 35. Its not like we are children but I don't think anyone is ever prepared for this. I go for my first meeting tomorrow with her dr. tomorrow. Im so scared, They said she may have a year not sure, I don't have anyone to talk to, I have so many questions, I just keep crying. I live in PA and she is in FL. I flew down for the weekend and to talk to her Dr about our options. Can someone please give me some guidence on where to go, I feel like I am spinning out of control and that is not like me. She is all I have. I can't stop feeling like every time I talk to her it will be the last or when she hugs me and I see her hand trembling, Im not sure of symptoms. etc. I know I am rambling,Im sorry, I m scared of losing my mom. can anyone help.
