It's been a long stressful day but I am now back at my parents home. Mom came through surgery today but the tumor was cancer. The Dr didn't remove the full lobe, just the tumore and surrounding tissue. At 81, she has a rough road ahead of her. Right now it is keeping Dad on track that is our full attention...he is so dependent on Mom.....it is just heart breaking seeing how lost he feels with her being so sick. We have a game plan between my two sisters, nieces....now to just get them through this. Our sincer thanks for all your thoughts and prayers.

Oh Denise, I am sorry to hear this news. Can your dad get involved in her care so he feels like he isn't useless? Prayers that both your parents are able to handle this hurdle.

So sorry that it is cancer but hopefully they can keep it under control with the removal of the tumor. With family working together on a game plan for dad I'm sure you will get him thru this. When a cancer diagnosis comes it takes time for it all to settle in; it is overwhelming to have a loved one so sick but then you work together to face the road ahead. With good family support your dad & mom will make it thru the rough journey they have ahead. Stress will take its toll on you Nieciez so please take care of yourself. You & your family are in my thoughts.

Lots of prayers from here. My cruise mates Mother is 78 and they did remove a lobe of her lung and she's doing fine. She also has other medical problems and came thru the surgery with no major issues and is doing well so hang in there. Susan

Big hugs and prayers are on the way to all of you. It's so hard sometimes on the spouses when they become so dependant on the other one. I know that your love and help will make all the difference to him.
