Tonsilliris and uterine cancer Oh my....




In the insanity that is my life more medical issues have arisen. I have to have my tonsils out on July 7Th and my mom was diagnosed yesterday with uterine cancer. They are scheduling surgery as soon as they can. Fun huh!
I am not sure why this is the way things work in my family why we seem to be in a constant state of crisis? I really don't understand what I am supposed to learn from this.
I am not worried about me the surgery is routine and I should be better in a week. With my mom its different to many variables, if its early she should only need a hysterectomy but they wont know until they get in there. They have known she has a growth on her adrenal gland for about a year but she isn't producing the hormones they think she should if it was something serious so they have waited. Now they are saying well if that is cancer then the uterus could be where it has metastasised to. If that is the case she is as good as dead.
I am praying my guts out!
My mom is only 62!
I will keep you up to date in the mean time I am going to keep myself busy stocking up on Popsicles and instant breakfast for the time I wont feel like eating. Maybe I will loose a couple pounds.(there has to be a bright side someplace)

I'm sorry, Carin. Hopefully the tonsilits won't be a big deal, and we'll hope for the best for your Mom. Keep us posted, and hang in there.

So sorry to hear about your mom. ((hugs)). When my daughter got her tonsils out she couldn't tolerate anything cold, she said it hurt too bad. She mostly ate jello, pudding and gatorade.

Hey Carin! Sorry to hear about your tonsils and your Mum's cancer. A friend of mine has had so many disasters happen to her and her family over the last five years (including her mother being knocked down by a bus!!) that she reckons not only did she run over a Chinaman, she must've run over the WHOLE FAMILY!! Love and laughter are the best medicine, so I wish you both lots of these! And know there's a whole blogging world out here thinking of you both! BEAR HUGS! KRIS (Tag Along Teddies)

Tonsils coming out as an adult was an adventure, of sorts, not wanting to be repeated with this girl!! Good thing we have only one pair to spare...I lived on oatmeal for a month after the surgery...yes, weight loss follows, lol. Sorry for your mom's situation. Will be thinking of both of you.
