Forgive me Kathy, I have been so wrapped up in my own soap opera, I didn't realize your MIL was so ill.

Praying for you all and peace for Mark!

Kathy, I'm afraid all I can offer you and your family is more good thoughts and prayers. So, so sorry for the prognosis I do hope that what time your mother-in-law has left (none of us know the future) is filled with laughter, good times and love. Elaine

Kathy you are in my thoughts and prayers !! 16 years ago my MIL died of brain cancer that had spread from lung cancer a few years before !!It is heartbreaking to watch and exhausting , I spent every lunch time with her and also many nights !! I don't regret 1 single minute of that time , she was able to pass at home surrounded by her loved ones !!

Kathy you, Mark and both his parents are in my prayers. That is never an easy place to be in, I went through a lot of this with my own mom and its very stressful to feel like your help isn't wanted. Hopefully she will relent and adjust to the help you and Mark and ready and willing to give (which is what my mom did). In any case, hang in there my friend!

Update -- 6/22

I promise I will get to individual responses (and to all of your threads I am following).

Mark has talked to the nurses and the doctor is calling him this afternoon. We do know that the cancer is also in her liver too.

We are going to Dubuque on Monday to see the kids (they bought a house!!!!) and will stop at the hospital on the way. Mark has decided whether his mother wants to see him or not, he is going...she can always throw him out.

Here's the house -- we are so excited for the kids and can't wait to see the house in person.

KatMark is online now
