Hi. I'm trying to recover from my mom's doctor visit yesterday. The doc told her that 7 out of 11 lymphs tested positive for cancer and they are worried about some nodes which are showing up in the lungs. Unfortunately, my mom has never been a very medical person so the cancer didn't get caught as quickly as it could of been. My mom is really down, thinking that there no hope for fighting it and I am trying to stay positive but it is hard. The good news is she got one drain tube removed and she is switching from her pain pills to regular, old Advil. The doctor did think she was healing amazingly well from the surgery. Thanks, I'm trying to keep my hope up and knowing you guys are here for me really helps!
