It's my first time posting on this board... On June 24th I found out my mum has terminal, inoperable cancer. It's in the gallbladder and (maybe) the lymph nodes around the liver. She went for a scope last Thursday, so we should have more information by the end of the week. Anyway, today we went out shopping and all of a sudden my mum said she had pain in her back. I brought her right home (about 20 minutes) and by the time we got here she was in agony. She was literally writhing on her bed, moaning in pain. I was so scared! I know the doctors said there would be paid but I guess I wasn't expecting this... I know it's selfish, but I'm only 29 - I'm not ready to be an orphan! And I don't want to have to see my mummy hurting. This isn't fair. I'm sorry, I don't mean to be either disjointed in posting, or selfish. It's been a rough few weeks.
