Back in late 2005, early 2006 my grandmother was diagnosed with lung cancer. She was a fighter and stayed strong and fought her way through lots of meds as well as chemo treatments. She even had the strength to make Aidan a baby blanket which she didnt get to finish due to the chemo making her ill. She has been doing well but tired the past 2 years. The cancer is gone and that is great. She even made all her kids, grandkids and in law kids dish towels for every day
I even cried when I opened them from Christmas because it made my heart sad that one day I will no longer be receiving these HAND MADE/HAND SEWN towels/blankets/etc
Well, today....this afternoon while I was in the shower, I receive an email from my aunt who lives across the street from my grandparents
Grandma hasn't been doing too well. I just wanted to give you all a heads up.
She actually went to her doctor without my having to push her into it. That in
itself tells me something. She just doesn't feel well. She is running a low
grade fever off and on. Dr didn't run any blood tests, but did give
her a physical and said she didn't find anything wrong.
Grandma goes back to the oncologist on Feb. 16. She is scheduled for a bone
density, mamogram, and chest x-ray, and blood test. I don't know what the tests
will show. However, I think she believes that her cancer may be returning
Grandma is having trouble eating. I have offered to do the cooking of the
evening meal, but she very firmly says no. I do get away with cooking once or
twice a week.
Please keep her in your T&P's for us please. I can't bear to lose her.....she was doing so great and doing more than she had been doing before the cancer a few years ago. I dont know what to do or say anymore....I am just heartbroken.
I know its all scary and hard. I remember all too well hearing my grandma had lung cancer, I can't imagine what it must feel like to feel that after beating it it may be back. I will be praying for her and for your family. Please, if you need anything, someone to talk to, someone to vent at, anything at all, let me know.
