Mom has lung cancer...

Went in for what we thought was pneumonia a couple weeks ago. Scans showed shadows...

Waiting for biopsy results, but the oncologist is pretty sure it is going to come back mesothelioma.

Mom tells us that she has been blessed to have made it to 85. Got a drain installed today (hmm, that doesn't sound quite right!!) so that as fluid builds up, she can get relief without having to go in to the hospital.

Watching and waiting to see how this next chapter unfolds. MrsTuner and I live closest of all the kids, so we will be running point. Both brothers coming in to town this week to be present.

Ugh. I’m sorry, Ron. I went through that with my mom 11 years ago.

That's rough news for all, Ron. Frowner
Sounds like you will be especially stressed owing to location. Your mom has a grateful spirit.

I’m sorry, Ron. I hope you and your siblings can work together to make sure Mom is comfortable and happy. She sounds like quite a trouper. Love her attitude!

I'm sorry to hear this news. We're going through this with Carol's mother who after having had colon and pancreatic cancers - now has metastasis to the lung and brain. A recent brain surgery has not produced the desired outcome.

Working without any specific data at this point, but she currently wants to focus on quality of life, not length...

Sorry to learn the bad news. I think she is doing the right thing. Hope I have
that sort of courage if I reach that point.
