She fought a terrible battle, had numerous surgeries, saw nameless nurses and tons of doctors. Her hospital stays were long and many. It was a terribly trying battle. But she persisted and she fought for answers. And she won!
And then today, she found out it's back or it's spread and my whole world came crashing down. My mom is my rock and my friend and I can't see her be put through this again. She fought so hard for what she has that it's so hard to see her taken back a step. But, she'll do what she does and she'll back so hard and she'll win. She has to. We need her.
So, now, she has cancer in her kidney. She'll meet with a urologist and then they will operate. Part or all of her kidney will be removed. I don't know if that means dialysis. I don't know if she'll need further treatment. I don't know and that terrifies me so much.
I need her. We need her. This little one needs her.
Yes, those are her hands holding my little itty bitty throwback baby.
