My mother has stage four terminal cancer. It's bad, has spread to several of her organs. It's a horrible way to die, but I was called yesterday morning and told the good news--it's a reoccurance of the breast cancer. Now, how is this good news? Apparently, stomach cancer is pretty bad.
Not that any cancer is good. But they think they can make her more comfortable to the end, and she might even be able to come home from the hospital again. Which considering what happened the last time, makes me apprehensive. But I'm hoping it will work this time.
So I didn't get the call about the Rita, but I might have gotten some even better news for my mother. Only time will tell, I'm afraid.
