Multiple Myeloma

Good Day,

My mother has been living with multiple myeloma for the past 3 1/2 years. Recently the chemotherapy was not yielding the kind of results necessary to keep the white blood cells in the fighting mode. Last week, my mom was admitted in hospice care (Gilchrist). The health professionals and staff are wonderful.

However, I am having a very hard time with this. My mom is my best friend. We did so much together. And now, I must begin to think about life without her. The pain that I experience is crippling!!!!!! I could really use any words of hope or peace.

Sorry to hear about your mother. Didn't the doctors give her different drugs to replace the one that no longer works?

My Mother was just dx with Small Cell lung cancer at the end of April. She also was my best friend. One of my only friends. She has been in the hospital for almost a month now. I miss her incredibly.... Can't talk to her about many of the things we used to share. Don't want to burden her with any problems what so ever.... Sorry about your mother and what you're going through right now. What about a second opinion for your Mom? I'm trying to just take one thing and one day at a time. As cliche as it sounds, it is working for me right now. Hugs.

It is very difficult. I'm so sorry to hear of this. I lost my dad in 1985 to cancer. That was before there was a Hospice I believe. It's never easy. Eventually you do learn to adapt, but it's never easy to be without someone you love.
