Long story short, I'm working, caregiving and am just grateful for each day we make it through, with the hope of a longer life. No cure - but working on making the time that we have with her the best memories one can have.

Peace, love, healing and light to all of you walking this path.

Being a full-time caregiver is the most insane, challenging, cruel "job" but also has the most rewarding, life-changing moments. Blessings to both you and your mom.

I hope you can make memories you will treasure for a lifetime and share enough love to warm and light up the dark places. Hang in there!

I could not agree more...Stay strong Gypsy Seer and come see us to get virtual hugs and all the love you can handle. I am so very sorry you and Mom are forced to fight this so hard and I send you strength when you are weak and light when the darkness crowds in...Hope you find whatever joy you can with her each and every day.

😢😢😢
Thoughts and prayers are sent. It is devastating, painful,
and the emptiest feeling one can have when someone we love so very much dies. The hurt is so strong, that the emotional pain becomes physical. Mostly, there are no words of comfort that really help. Things change, life goes on, suddenly everything is different, but somehow...you find strength (after a period of time) and put one foot in front of the other.

I hope you find the strength. Let yourself feel the sadness, cry the tears, and voice the anger. The pain will ebb and flow. Take it as it comes and know, only time will make a difference. The amount of time is unknown.

Again, thoughts and prayers to you.

I can only echo some of what has been shared with you already.
Yes, being a caregiver to someone is so very difficult at times. It challenges your body, your mind, your heart, and your spirit. But know this, you will never forget the time you spent together or the very special moments you share. Nothing will make you feel more comfort after she leaves you than knowing you did all you could for her and that you were with her and gave her all your love.

Be strong. I always say, tell your loved one, "I love you" as much as possible.
They're three words you don't want to regret not saying.

Positive thoughts sent your way.

Oh my friend, I'm so sorry to hear you have this worry and concern. I pray it's nothing and all is well. Keep positive. Thinking of you and keeping you in my thoughts and prayers.

Thank you for the support

Hi all...

This is cmslt2326 and I can not thank you enough for all the support here.

Recently I found a small lump and some swelling in my left breast (the one that previously had cancer in it). After several weeks and multiple tests I can tell you that the lump is benign and the swelling is a swollen milk duct. The doctors will continue to monitor it but feel that it is not serious. Yayyyy.

A minor little addition to this is that I recently passed out and fell giving myself a fairly severe concussion. The headaches are intense and the double vision, nausea and other side effects quite honestly are no fun. This thread has been such a lifesaver for me at times and again I can not thank you all enough...Lots of love.

June 2017 - He seemed like he was losing weight and kind of not feeling well sort of sick.

July 2017 - Fell into a coma as they finally found 3 brain lesions from lymphoma and we all prayed for a miracle as they added chemo.

August 2017 - The doctors chins dropped and heads slowly shook back and forth.

September 2017 - He passed away after 7 days of hospice at home at the age of 33.

Everyday since we are all living with hearts that are heavy and crackled.
