Moving Fast

Things have been moving so fast and changing each day. Mom's strength and courage brings us all comfort and hope but reality quickly sets in when we're faced with constant battles we can not control.

After trips to Indiana and Chicago we've learned that Mom is not a candidate for the clinical trial because she doesn't have a certain type of tissue match they are looking for. We also discovered that she may have 2 types of cancer; breast and the gastric cancer. As you can imagine this was very shocking and mind blowing. If the genetic specialist could figure out exactly what cancers she has, this would open doors for more types of treatments.  The challenge however is that each day she's getting weaker and the cancer is growing stronger.

Family and friends have been an amazing support. Mom requires full time care in all aspects. Our aunts have arranged caregiver schedule along with medication and food lists and have been extremely helpful with doctors visits and summarizing the details of this information.

I'm going home in 3 days but it feels like it's 3 months away. Hang on Momma... I'm coming home!
