Thanks guys. My step mom is the only reason I have a relationship with my dad. She's sweet and kind and gentle. She and my dad married in 2004, and I know that if we lose her, we'll lose my dad too. She has three kids of her own and 6 grand kids from her first marriage that would be lost without her.

(betrayedfriend))) I'm so sorry :(

My brother battled liver cancer and outlived his prognosis nine times over. Depending on how aggressive your SM wants to be, there is hope for good quality of life for longer than many once thought possible.

PM if you ever need an ear or shoulder.

This will be her second surgery. The first one removed most of her stomach, pancreas, part of her liver and a good part of her intestine. She is in good spirits, but I'm so worried about her. I just saw her a few weeks ago when she and my dad drove up and surprised us by coming to my kids' birthday party. They live several states away from here. The reason I say that we'll lose my dad too, is because he's always been the type of person that if someone is out of sight, they are out of mind. It's not malicious, and we learned to cope with it many years ago ( my parents divorced when I was 6). So between that and the hatred my mom aimed at him, I never really had a chance to know him as a kid. My stepmom was appalled at the lack of relationship and immediately set about building bridges and encouraging Dad to be more active. It's not ideal but we are friendly and on good terms now. And Cathy has been the key reason that relationship exists. I love her and I hate that she's suffering and struggling even though she puts on a good front.
