My mom is 57 years old. She will be 58 in November, if she even lives that long. I'm 21 years old, and my daughter is 10 months old. Mom had a cancerous growth on her tongue last year and, with surgery and radiation, they thought it was all gone. But then she started getting sick again. She wasn't eating, she was losing weight left and right and finally, last week, she was too weak to get out of bed to go to a doctor's appointment, so my dad called the ambulance to get her to the hospital. The biopsies that they did on her liver came back positive. They didn't even bother to biopsy the lesions in her lungs because they are assuming whatever is in her liver is in her lungs. So now she has liver and (possibly) lung cancer. The doctors told my dad that it was terminal and that she has 2 months to a year to live. I'm in the Army, and I'm across the country from my mom, quite literally, since my husband, my daughter and myself live in Maryland and the rest of my family lives in California. I'm going home on Saturday for a week, and it just sort of hit me that this could possibly be the last time that I see my mom alive. I haven't been able to stop crying since Saturday, when my dad told me that my mom's cancer was terminal, and my husband has to force me to eat. I just don't know what to do anymore.
