I can hardly believe this is happening. We lost my mother-in-law to lung cancer in December, now I find out my father has esophageal cancer. We don't know what stage he's at yet. He has appointments next week with both an oncologist and a surgeon. Everything I've read on the web scares me to death. This cancer sounds very serious. We mistakenly thought they'd just do another scope like the dilatations he's had in the past.
In addition to that, my mother has a lump in her breast that needs to be removed & tested. I am just completely numb. I don't feel like I have any feelings left. We were absolutely torn apart over losing my mother-in-law. Now, with this happening so quickly afterwards, I find no emotions left. I guess that will come later, once we know more. I have always thought that God wouldn't give me more than I can handle, but how much can one person deal with?
This sounds so selfish. I should be worried about my parents, instead of myself. I guess I am just angry that this is happening now, while we are still trying to recover from last month's events. Anyone out there with words of encouragement for me? Tell me to pull my head out & get it together, will you?
