    A month or so ago, I wrote this post in this thread:

    On Thursday, she got scan results showing that the tumor in her liver that had been the main battle for all these years had grown to the point where it was basically taking over. It was a call we had all be preparing ourselves for for a very long time. But to be honest, we were never really ready to face this.

    That evening my wife and I hurried the three hour drive back to my hometown. When we got to my parents' cabin, Dad and my sister and her fiancee were there, and Mom was in very rough shape. We brought her to the emergency room, and at about midnight she was transferred to a regular hospital bed, and the next day the ICU.

    She was hooked up to so many tubes. Her liver was failing, her kidneys started failing, her heart was beating so fast but blood pressure was so low. Her lungs filled up with fluid and the insides of her mouth and throat were covered in open sores from the chemo she had been taking.

    Mom was always a fighter. Hell, how else would someone battle stage IV cancer for eight years without a single complaint? So it was no surprise that she spent four days in the hospital in this condition before passing away at 11pm last night.

    I would have never imagined it was going to be this rough.

    Ladies, please make sure you do breast exams regularly. All this started out as a lump that turned out to be a lot worse than anticipated. Guys, do the same. You know where. I long for a world where no family has to go through what ours is going through right now.

    Peace and love forever,
    Your friend SH.

    You may be a smartass Sherbert, but you're our smartass and we love you. My heart is with you... I'm not religious, but I will pray for your mother the way I can.

    My thoughts are with you Hoover. She was lucky to have a loving family and not having to go through it alone.

    Sorry for your loss OP I can relate to what you must be going through. Both my parents passed away from cancer. My father passed away last year from brain cancer and my mother passed away 12 years back from cancer in her uterus while I was still young. It's tough but we need keep strong . God be with you and your family.
