Just as my dad finds out the margins of his surgery are clean, my wife's mother gets taken to the hospital, and we are told "bring [her son] by. It's not likely she will ever be going home again" and "without a biopsy, we can't say anything, but the MRI of her liver shows it is incredibly enlarged and she has spots in her lung and liver as well."

f*ck.

f*ck indeed. So sorry man.

That sucks.

Good gawd.

This is the future waiting for me and my parents in the coming years and I don't even ........

Really sorry to hear that news.

“You need to get your brother and come to the hospital ASAP.”

F*ck

Damn that's rough to hear. I'm so sorry for your family.

I'm so sorry to hear this, mudbunny.

f*ck man, so sorry.

And they switched to palliative care. My wife is preparing a bag for the night and will be sleeping there while I’m at home with the girls.

Your family is in my thoughts, mudbunny.

Really sorry to read this mudbunny. Wishing you and your family strength to get through this; you guys have really been through enough.

RIP Francine Paris.

So sorry. Please let us know if we can be of any support.

I'm sorry, mudbunny. If I may quote you : FUUUUUCK.

Thanks for the well wishes all.

It was quick, and she is out of pain now.

It's complicated by the fact that, for a good part of my wife's adult life, she was basically no-contact with her mother...

Well, damn, sorry mudbunny.

We're sorry for your loss and your wife's loss mudbunny.

.

So sorry mudbunny.

Sorry for your loss

Really sorry to hear that mudbunny. My mother was pretty no nonsense and I always like to see the other side of things. So we but heads a lot growing up.

But something that helped me with that after she passed was to take a page from her book and look at something in my life that seemed important but ultimately was filled with a lot of nonsense. So I chose to quit facebook in her memory

I know you and your wife are hurting right now and the last thing you need is advice, but something like that can close the loop and be cathartic.

Mom is waiting for results on some things they found in her lungs and on her neck. Sigh....

Sending all the hopes I can for good news.

Hoping for the best and keeping you and your mom in my thoughts.

Thanks, I've got a filing cabinet of positive for people in this thread. The doctor is cautiously optimistic with radiation and chemo will help. There's still another place to check to make sure there's only one anomaly outside of the ling area.

Day 140+ post-transplant and docs called us tonight to tell us that labs from Wednesday came back positive for leukemia for our son. Zero indication. Zero warning. Out of nowhere. And everything was going so swimmingly.

5 years of fighting the most common/curable form of pediatric cancer, 3 stupid relapses that made no sense given the program, failed KAR-T that made no sense given the way it works, a completely successful transplant by every single indication from a donor who is THE AMERICAN BADASS (whoever you are), and still...our boy still has leukemia. Still. He still has leukemia.

His albatross.

We always knew he was one in a million, even before he was ever sick he won the world over with his eyes and his heart and his gentle smile and his easy laugh. To everyone who has eyes and ears he's a unicorn among unicorns. And nothing is working and my heart cannot break any more.

f*ck. f*ck f*ck f*ck f*ck f*ck f*ck f*ck f*ck f*ck f*ck f*ck f*ck f*ck f*ck f*ck FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCK

I'm so sorry I'm several drinks in and we're not going to sleep tonight because our hearts have been ripped out for I don't know how many times now.

We have so far to go with science, with research, to find away out of the hell that is ugly cells dividing without rhyme or reason. It sounds so simple.

Find someone you love and hug the sh*t out of them right now, then go help fund cancer research because this ain't livin'.

Sorry, WizardM0de. Sending whatever karma I can muster your way. Stay strong.

I don't know what to say besides I'm so sorry WizardM0de.

Cripes, that's beyond awful. So absolutely sorry.

I'm so saddened to hear that, WizardM0de. We're all with you right now--you're not alone in this hard, hard time.
