Hello all. My mom has recently been diagnosed with lung cancer with mets to the brain. She has undergone stereotactic radiation to the brain, 9 radiation treatments to the lung and 1 chemo treatment so far. Well a week ago I went over to her house to help her clean and take her to her treatment. I walk in the door and she is lying on her living room floor. So next thing I know she is in ICU for the next 5 days. Her blood sugar level was over 900 and I thought we were going to lose her. But they did bring her back and she is at home now and now she is dealing with lung cancer that has gone to the brain, all the treatments for that and now diabetes. So she's at home and she is getting better day by day. But she won't atleast try to get up and do anything. The only thing she will do is get up and go to the bathroom or to bed. I know she is still very weak and very frustrated but I just feel like she could atleast try to get some exercise. The only thing she has told me was that she wants to wait till her treatments are over for this month and see what happens. She can be very SNIPPY when you bring anything about it up to her and I don't know if I should keep on her about it or just let her be. She has also canceled her physical therapy sessions as well. Am I being to demanding with her or should I just let it be. Confused in Ohio.
