This Is Where I Fill You All In

Little did I know when I signed up for NaBloPoMo that I would be signing up for therapy.

I’ve been having trouble sleeping, but last night wasn’t so bad. After writing on my blog, I felt better.

Some of you know that my mom’s breast cancer metastasized to her bones. Now the cancer has metastasized to her liver.

This is not good.

She is too weak to have chemotherapy. Mom told me, “I don’t want to give up.” But chemo would just make her miserable, and wouldn’t prolong her life more than a couple of months.

The doctor told my dad that it’s a matter of days and weeks, not months.

Mom is surrounded by her four children and her loving husband. She is at a wonderful hospice, whose philosophy is all about life, not death.

You may read a lot about my mom for the rest of the month. If you continue to read Lemon Drop Pie, this won’t be the happiest blog in town.

But telling you about my pain makes me sleep a little easier.

Blogging is good therapy for me. Thanks for listening.
