HI again, it has been a while since I last posted and since then my MIL has been taken off caelix and put on a daily tablet (dont know what it is) and Last week she had a CT which showed a brain tumer.I was afraid that was going to happen. In Oct. she started showing signs of something going on but she would not discuss it with her dr. but after her last visit to him she could not hide the signs. ( slurred speach). I just went through this with my uncle last yr. he had kidney cancer that metastised in the brain. I know what is going to happen and the likely progression, but my husbands brothers and father are still in denial. How do i make them understand that we have to do everything we can to make Mom comfortable and make arrangements for nursing care. I know she is going to need it and they seem to think that she will be fine. I just finally talked them into allowing the ladies from their church to come and clean the house for them. As of a couple of weeks ago my FIL was still expecting my MIL to do most of it! My husbands understands what the progression may be as he went through everything with my uncle last year with me.
