    My mother (triggers)

    [TRIGGER] My father called earlier in the evening to let me know that they just found out my mother has terminal cancer of the lungs and liver. They are giving her 9 to 12 months. I'm in shock right now. I need to get my head on right to figure out what I need to do here. I'm at such a loss. I didn't speak with my mom. She wasn't up for it. My dad said to call back in a couple of days. This is so surreal.

    I am so sorry. I will keep your mom and your family in my thoughts in prayers.

    I do want to say that my step father was diagnosed with cancer and given 6-9 months to live and this was 2 years ago. He is still going strong! So there are miracles out there.

    I am so sorry. You and your family are definitely in my thoughts.
    4 1/2 years ago, mom had a heart attack and had to be resuscitated and then medi-vacced to a cardiac care unit. It's really hard having a sick parent, especially when you don't live close by. When she's ready, she'll let you know how you can help.
