(((((((confused & mom))))))) Oh, honey.

Sending you and your mom everything I've got.

That's the same form my mom had.

Best advice I can give you is become her health advocate, weighing each procedure and proposed treatment very carefully.

She'll need someone in her corner.

I'm so deeply sorry.

Sending hugs and prayers. We've been through something very similar (swap lung for gastric). Please PM me anytime.

I am so sorry, it took my dad too

What I can tell you, my dad was 72 when diagnosed, July 13 was day of diagnosis Aug 26 he passed, it was fast for him, he received radiation treatments to alleviate pain, and pain medication nothing for life prolonging procedures as nothing would have helped

I agree with AJ's mom, be her advocate, let her wishes be heard, my biggest concern with my dad became him not being in any pain, I couldn't bare to see him suffer

I spent as much time as I could with my dad, I was lucky that I could, I had known others with this form of cancer and they didn't last long, time with my dad became precious

You and your family are in my prayers,

Just be there to listen. Write down stories, video or photograph as appropriate. Wish I had more video of my Mom.

Praying for a miracle for the two of you

I'm so sorry to hear this news.

Make the most of whatever time you have left together with her. This is such a difficult thing to go through, but it is a gift that you know now and can plan for the end (should this be the end).

Thinking of you and sending you and your mom strength.

I am so sorry, confused.

Just spend all the time with her that you can.
