I hate making threads like this, but I'm struggling to keep my mind off stuff, especially today. The day after Mother's Day, my mother (59) was informed she has breast cancer. After nearly two months of bullshit doctor visits, numerous tests, and thousands upon thousands of dollars of crap biopsys, scans, and bloodwork ... my mother goes in to surgery today at 5pm EST. The best news that we can hope for right now is that in her lymphnodes, there is nothing there. That the cancer hasn't spread. If it's in her lymphnodes, well, then this is just the beginning of a super long battle that doesn't look promising to win. We'll know as soon as her surgery is over if the cancer is in her lymphnodes. If you guys could keep your fingers crossed, or do whatever it is that you do, I'd appreciate it. This is why I've been so asshole the last month or so, why I haven't even touched my own sales thread, or anything of the sort. My mother's battle with breast cancer has consumed me, to the point my only resort at the end of the day is to drink. My mom has gone through so much medical bullshit in her life, she doesn't need this on top of everything else. The best thing that could happen is that this surgery and a little bit of kemo/radiation fixes it ... so please keep her in your thoughts, or say a prayer if you're the type, or cross your fingers, whatever. Thanks guys. If you know my cell, you know how to reach me.
