In August 2012 my world fell apart when I got the news my mom was diagnosed with stage 2 ovarian cancer. At first I was convinced everything was just going to be okay because she's so strong. But over the course of a few months she started chemo and her legs along with her stomach started to bloat and fill with water and the doctors said they couldn't do anything about it. She eventually stopped walking and laying down competley! She preferred to sit up all the time and even sleep like that because of the pain. In mid August she was admitted to ICU in a Manhattan hospital but got better and eventually transfered to a nursing home rehabilitation center to walk again. Recently she complained she couldn't breathe and we rushed to her to emegency but she got sent to ICU again. She has internal bleeding from a huge ulcer and is sedated which means she's hooked up to a machiene to help her breathe. I have so much faith that she will get out of ICU again. I was a wondering if anyone had any similar expierences or anything to just say because I'm scared I'm only 18 but I know I must be strong for my mom.!
