I dont know if many of you guys remember me. I posted last June when my mom was diagnosed with colon cancer after having some pretty serious back issues. It was discovered she had a tumor on her sacrum and then stage 4 colon cancer was diagnosed. At the start of this I was very lost, angry, confused and hated everything about life. This board helped me a great deal and I posted a few questions and got some great responses. My mom was doing very well at the start of this summer and then she started having issues with the pain from the sacral met. About 3 weeks ago she could hardly stay awake and could barely talk. My dad took her to the hospital and she suffered a minor stroke. She is being discharged from the hospital tomorrow and the doctor told my dad she has very little time left. She will be returning home with hospice. I knew this day would come but somehow after the initial shock and depression i felt with her diagnosis I hid everything well. Today it feels like I am back when she first got diagnosed... lost and helpless. These are the days I have dreaded my entire life... losing one of my parents.
