I just registered here and im very tired... I dont really know how to sum things up, but ill try. My Mom was diagnosed with Liver cancer on May 3rd, and was told it had spread to her lungs, pelvis & lower spine. It took way too long to get her Chemo Meds, Nexavar... due to the lack of organization at her Cancer Doctors office, but she finally got the Meds two weeks ago. Shes had several Paracentisis procedures, but has only had the Thoracentisis done twice, the second one was this evening. She did well after her first Thoracentisis, but this time took a different turn. After she came back in the room, she started coughing non-stop and her O2 levels were running from 83 to 88. She kept coughing and coughing up nasty stuff out of her lungs. Plus, her O2 has always been around 98 & 99 until now... so I dont know what happened. She wasn't in this shape until after her Thoracentisis. So now shes in the ICU with a BiPap and mask & her O2 level Wont come up. Shes stable & her vitals are good... but Im very worried about her. I hate shes going through this! And to make matters worse, I had to leave her at the hospital to come home and take care of things, because its just the two of us... we're completely on our own & have no family or anyone helping us or supporting us. The hospital is an hours drive from here... My vehicle is a piece of crap & we're on a wing & a prayer every time we use it, and we cant afford to get a good vehicle... I mean, its just really rough right now. I guess I just needed somewhere to talk about all this. Thanks for reading.
