I found out 3 months ago that my mother has stage 4 ovarian cancer. We are in the process of moving her into my home so that I can give her full time care instead of having to leave my children for weeks at a time to go to her house which is 400 miles away. I recently (Jan 12, 2009 at 2:27am) lost my aunt (mom's sister) to cervical cancer which she battled for 18 months. I was there ( in Baltimore) when she died and I don't know how I will deal with it when the time comes for my mom to go. I have no one to talk to about this since most people I deal with daily have no clue what it's like. I am hoping that maybe I can talk to some people on here that are dealing with similar issues. I am only 29 and should not have to be doing this yet.I expected that later in life as she got older I would need to take care of her. I never imagined this. I dealt with my father's prostate cancer fairly well since he had it removed, he is so far a 2 year survivor. His was a lot easier for me to deal with. Sorry for rambling on but I just need to get it all out I guess.
