My mother was diagnosed a few months ago with Stage 3/4. The tumor is large and in the center of her chest. After 7 rounds of chemo, tests show that chemo is working and the tumor is shrinking. She began another 8 rounds or so. However, she'll never be operable becuase of the location and the fact that the tumor is too close to the lymphnodes. She goes in and out of wanting to fight the cancer and then wanting to quit. It can be so hard to hear her sobbing on the phone about this...I know I'm losing my mother. I just wonder how others who have been the caregiver and how you deal with the emotions of the one you love and your own?
