My MIL has fought lung cancer for 9 months. She's done SO well with chemo and radiation, just a few tired days and some minor complaints about losing her hair. They said it was caught early, gave us hope it was cured a couple months ago.
She got sick last week, tests now show it's back in her lung and has spread to her neck, spine and liver. Dr today said chemo is just to prolong the inevitable.
She's so special. Her biggest complaint last week was a friend from church who didn't believe her when she said she felt fine. She asked if she should lie just to get her off her back.
My Mom died many years ago, I've been blessed with a very special MIL who is Mom to me. My husband is strong but obviously in pain, our 3 grown daughters are heartbroken. This is so painful to all of us, but what we want most right now is what is best for her.
What to say???? What do do??? How do we make this easier for her?????
