The Big 'C'
It affects every person in one way or another.
I watched my father die almost 13 years ago from lung cancer. Trust me, it wasn't a pretty sight.
Today, my mother was diagnosed with the same disease. The doctor took a biopsy last Friday and during the procedure her lung collapsed. They had to insert a chest tube to get her lung re-inflated, and she ended up spending two nights in the hospital.
She has an appointment with an oncologist on Monday at MD Anderson in Houston. I'm sure they will run more tests to see if the cancer has spread. Then a protocol will be planned and treatment will begin.
Today was not a good day.
