I've been wrestling with posting this as I generally don't air my personal laundry in public. And although I'm not very religious, I do think the power of prayer and positive energy does help those in need. So I'm asking for a bit of both on behalf on my mom.

She's had a rough time this past several years. In 2011 she was hit by a car while crossing at an intersection one block from her house. She was in the hospital for one month and then four months in a hospice / therapy facility to recover from broken legs. In 2013 she was diagnosed with bladder cancer, most likely from 50+ years of cigarettes. While undergoing the initial round of chemotherapy, she had a heart attack. She recovered from that and completed chemo. Luckily the cancer went into remission. This past July her oncologist advised that her latest scans show new tumor activity, so it's back to chemo again. One tumor has blocked the output from one of her kidneys, so they had to put in an external bypass. She was also diagnosed with beginning stages of COPD. The hits just keep on coming.

She's 81 and a strong fighter, but now she's running an uphill battle against a stiff wind. So any good thoughts or prayers you can send would be appreciated.

As I like to hedge my bets, I will light a candle, say a prayer, do a smudging dance, and send good vibes her way......

Thanks once again for the support. Unfortunately we were given the news this week that my mom's cancer is not responding to current treatment and is spreading. Her Dr. advises that stronger treatments would not be advisable at this stage, considering her weakened condition. So we have started hospice care. The home RN assigned is sharp, witty and compassionate. (So unlike many of the doctors at hospitals these days.)

The past few months have been very stressful on me and I find myself exhausted by the end of most days. But I can find some brief relaxation with some snuff, bourbon and the news on BoB.

I'm very sorry to hear this. These types of prognoses are never easy to accept and very difficult to worth through. Spend the time with your Mom in the way that best brings love and comfort to both of you. My thoughts are with you and your family. - Tom
