Hey all.. Checking in and an update — The Bump
Trouble TTC

Hey all.. Checking in and an update

I realize I've been MIA for some time. Probably about a month. I hope that the girls I know have moved on and won't even see this. For those still here ((hugs))

July 6th my mom was rushed to the ER with chest pains. After she got there she ended up having severe stomach pains. I've never seen her in that much pain. They did an emergency CT scan and found air in her abdomen. We were told she probably perforated a bowel, they'd do some surgery, sew it up, and she'd be good.

About an hour into the surgery they came out to tell me that it was actually her stomach that had perforated and it did so because she had a large tumor on it. The tumor had encroached into her spleen and esophagus. They had to remove the tumor as well as her spleen and stomach.

It's been a long road since. She was in the hospital for 2 1/2 weeks and has finally come home last week.Her diagnosis is bad. Stage IIIb Adenocarcinoma of the stomach. The survival rate for this stage and type of cancer is pretty dismal. She also has an abscess where her stomach was that we're watching because, as my dr so nicely put it, if we don't get that healed, she won't live six months. (super comforting, right?)

Being an only child with a single parent, my whole world is crumbling. This is my mommy. My husband has been amazing but otherwise I don't have much close family.  

I don't know what this means for TTC. I guess that's on hold for a while as we try to get her through treatments. I probably won't be around much but I wanted to update you girls. T&P are always appreciated as we face this.

Cancer is such F'n BS.

  • I am so sorry honey! Sending you massive amounts of HUGS right now. Sending you lots of T&P's too that your mom gets through this!

    My dad died when I was little and I don't know what I would do without my mom so I cannot even imagine what you are going through. I am here if you ever need to talk, vent, yell or scream.
