It takes time. I am just now getting to the point where I can admit that a cancer diagnosis is not necessarily a death sentence for everyone who receives it. I've even seen some severe cases lately where things did not turn out the way I expected them too. Sadly I think in a lot of cases we do already know the outcome and all we can do is pray for the people involved. The cancer patient and the family. Pray that they are as comfortable as possible, that they are able to find peace with what is happening, that they say what they need to say so that they have no regrets and that they are able to enjoy whatever time they do have.
Thank you MountainMomma .... you are right & i do try,,,, but no your right,,, & that is a good way of looking at it... i've always been the one who looks at the brighter side of things.. so for this to stuggle with.. is hard for me ....
with my mom i tried to be realistic but also hopeful. Cancer is a strange thing and reacts so differently in each person and with different treatments, you really never know the true outcome until it happens. With my mom once they diagnosed her and her first hospitalization - apparently they never expected her to make it out of the hospital that first round, but she made it home and 5 more months. They can do so much with treatments these days....there is always a little hope to be had, nothing is ever definite until it happens. Many many T&P's for that mama!
We found out May 11 08 my dad had lung cancer he passed away July 24. I was thinking it was just a spot and we could treat him I soon found out it was already spread throughout his entire body.
I was not going to let him give up without a fight, then I felt selfish cause he was in so much pain. The day he died I talked to him on the phone and told him I loved him and he could let go I was going to be ok I didn't want him to hurt anymore he passed right after I hung up.
