It ia the middle of the night and I can't sleep. We just found out on 4/14/05 that my mother in law's cancer is back and has invaded her bowel. She has some ascites and is having trouble catching her breath. Her original gyne/onc says we can start chemo or just try and make her comfortable. We are not giving up that easily. I am a nurse and have made arrangements to have her seen at University of Chicago to explore treatment options. I guess I am just looking for hope and someone who has been through this. Since I have so much medical knowledge, I am extremely frightened about the future. I also want to be able to give our family the most acurrate information, but also be able to give them hope. Thank you for any support anyone may have.......
