She's Sick...

And I'm not quite sure how I feel yet.
My mom called me today in tears. Her mom's doctor's office had called her to tell her that they found an aggressive, fast-growing cancer in her mother. They're doing as many tests as they can, but the first concern was getting Grandma under control. (I guess she's been super sick for days...throwing up and just feeling miserable.)
They've found tumors in her lungs, liver and colon. To me, it sounds like the NF1 at work.
Grandma just turned 74 on Fathers' Day. I've already lost one Grandmother to cancer...I don't know if I can handle losing another the same way.

huge hugs!! I'm here anytime you want to talk. I'm so sorry. I hope that your family finds peace with whatever treatment you feel is best for your gma. And I hope your gma is as comfortable as possible during all of this.

I am so sorry. Cancer sucks. I've lost a grandma to it (she died when I was just a few months old), and Kelly lost BOTH of his because of it. Cancer sucks. (((hugs)))

SO much coming your way.. hormones and such. Just remember- you can handle whatever comes your way, and you can also remember- that you aren't losing them- not really.

Keep your chin up, you need a GNO- someone needs to make you laugh till you cry. *HUGS*

Finally had a chance to read your blog after a couple of weeks. What a sad thing to find out. Your grandma is such a sweetie, I hate to think of her going through such a difficult thing. Your family is in my prayers. Keep me updated on her, okay? Give your mom a big old Kimby bear hug! :) Love you!
