I cannot believe what is happening in my family. We just lost my mother-in-law last month to lung cancer following a 3+ year battle. Now, I find out my father has esophageal cancer, don't know any details yet. He visits an oncologist & surgeon next week to figure things out. In addition to that, my mother has to have a breast biopsy next week. We don't know what she'll be facing either. I am just numb. I can't believe we just got done with one terrible process, only to begin again. It was absolutely heart-wrenching to watch my mother-in-law die. I can't bear the thought of having to do this again so soon. I know I am just being selfish, need to quit all these "poor me" feelings, but honestly, how much can we endure? I have always thought God doesn't give us more than we can handle, but this is unreal. I can't even be angry about it, I'm just numb. I guess it will hit when we find out what is happening with both of them.
