Do any of you ever feel like you have it all under control as best as you can and then, boom, there's another hit? I had finally thought that I could handle a couple of months commuting to work 3 hours each day, and trying to be a mom to my kids while helping out my mom and sister. Then my sister calls me this morning. She has to have surgery again next week. For those of you who don't know, my sister is 24, has a son from her 1st marriage, and is due in July with her 2nd son. On top of that, she has thyroid cancer. They removed her entire thyroid and 18 lymph nodes back in Jan and it all came back positive. So now she has to have another lymph node removed next week, and this one is no where near the original cancer site. Which means it has spread. She's in such denial over the whole thing. She thinks she can just have a simple treatment once the baby's born and she'll be okay. So I have to deal with the fact that not only do I not know what is happening with my husband but now I may lose my sister and have 2 more kids to take care of. I know if I don't fight to take them, they won't ever be together and my oldest nephew will fall thru the cracks... I am praying...I just don't know how much more I can handle...
