OT--NEED PRAYERS
I don't really know how to post these OT topics, but need your help. I have just learned about an hour ago that there is a recurrence of my almost 78 year old Mother's breast cancer...apparently, there is a tumor in her spine, a crack in the spine, and possibly has spread to her liver. She had a mastectomy 13 years ago this month and has been on the drug Tamoxifen since. I am so upset and just don't know how we're going to tell her. I'll probably leave Mt. Airy for her house tomorrow. Please keep her and our family in your prayers.

Thanks-Joyce[/b]

You and your mother will surely be in my prayers. If you tell me her first name and her mother's first name I will ask that a prayer be said for her at my synagogue.

Thank you all so much...right now, I can't do anything except cry and I know that I need to be strong for her. I just talked to a nurse at her regular doctor's office and he wants my brother and I to go in to talk with him concerning my Mom's options on Thursday afternoon. I just don't know if we should tell her before or just what to do. Knowing my Mom, she will refuse treatment because she refused chemo and radiation after her mastectomy. She is just a good person and we're very close...in fact, since we had to move almost 4 1/2 years ago, I have called her several times a day and we stay at her house every other weekend....she is my Main Rock. My SIL just called and said that the orthopedic doctor called her to say that he may be overly optomistic, but that the type of tumor located in my Mom's spine can sometimes be treated with hormones. They have her scheduled for a biopsy and some type of injection to relieve the pain from the crack in her spine on Friday at 2:30 p.m. EST.

Jeremy, her name is Lellean (sounds like Ellen with an L)...thank you so much. I know that prayers work miracles because I've been witness to many miracles.
