A terminal prognosis ...

Well today was a day that nobody can ever anticipate. My mother was diagnosed with stage 4 liver and bone cancer. She will be going into surgery on her spine and her femur, and then a liver biopsy. To say the carpet has been pulled out from beneath of me and my brothers is an understatement. My twin and I are 47 and my older brother is about to turn 51. My mother just turned 70 in December. As you can see by the ages, she was a  young mother, and we grew up being very close. She was a single mother, and did everything on her own. She is simply amazing. I have no idea what tomorrow will bring, but I k now that the greif has already started. I have cried off and on all day, and struggled to eat. I lost my father when I was 33, and that was tough. This will be MUCH harder. I am the momma's boy. My mother and I are very close. We talk every day, and I have shared everything with her since I was born. She used to take me out of school so that we could go to the mall, and then eat cob salads. We've had such a cool and unique relationship. I will miss her profoundly. At the moment, I am numb. I have no idea what the point of this post really is. Maybe it's just to introduce myself, and to feel a part of community of people who might be able to relate. As we go these posts will clearly have to change to past tense,  but right now I am just living in the moment and putting one foot in front of the other. Thank you in advance for any support.

I'm so sorry to hear about this. At least you have your brothers so you all can help each other through. I hope she is able to beat the odds!
