Lost my wonderful husband in June after a yr. long battle with brain cancer. My mother has been diagnosed with stage 3 breast cancer and we are trying to decide what route to take. Because of her age (85) and some health issues, it comes down to a full mastectomy or doing nothing and letting the cancer take its course. I believe at this point she is opting for the mastectomy. Just can't seem to get a break from this cancer craziness. My children and I are still reeling from our loss. Just not sure I've got the energy or stamina to do this again so soon. Fortunately, I have wonderful siblings who always step up to the plate, so I don't feel like I am the "Ring Master" this time. Just venting...
