My grandmother was diagnosed with lung cancer yesterday. The PET scan shows there may also be cancer in her colon. The doctor told her the lung cancer is the type that responds well to chemo. It is small celled, which I have heard is a godo thing. The tumor is about the size of a lemon.
She visits with her oncologist Wednesday to find out who much chemo she will need and how often.
I'm not sure what I am looking to accomplish here, but I need an outlet. She is scared even though she is putting up a brave front. I guess I just needed someone to listen. I was so angry yesterday when my mother told me. And now I cannot seem to stop crying.
I know it isn't, but it feels like her death sentence.
