My heart ached at your message. My mom is my soul friend as well. She was diagnosed with inoperable pc in August. She is 69. She is undertaking chemo as she doesn't have any other health problems -- which makes my heart go out to you so much more that you/your mom have to face this double obstacle. I don't know if there is anything I or anybody else can say to you to help you cope other than to offer our symbolic shoulders to cry on. Although words will sound very empty now, at least you find kindred souls here. We all seem to share one central and immensely tragic crossroad -- facing the highly potential loss of a cherished loved one.. and some on here are even facing their own mortality. I can tell you that visiting here helps me adjust everyday although sometimes I still feel like just climbing to the highest mountain possible and screaming so loud that surely all in Heaven will hear me. I have learned, however, to simply take advantage to the utmost degree of the time I have left with my mom and to show her the most beautiful thing I can show her right now -- love. I guess coping is something very personal and everybody does it differently and perhaps it comes in degrees. But, a vital necessity it seems to me is support from those around you. I sincerely hope you have a good support network in your own family to help you/each other /your mom through this trying and soul-searching time. Love & prayers, Linda.
