So, once again the big C (Cancer) is lurking over my family, though this time it is not me. My mother has just been diagnosed, over the last several weeks of inumerable tests, with pancreatic cancer. I think it is much worse being with and taking care of someone who has the dreaded C than it is to actually have it.

The threat of my mother being taken from us floors me. Those of you who have one still kicking should go and hug her just because. Time disappears like water through the fingers.

They do plan on operating. She will have a pancreatic resection done on March 10th. It's a pretty serious operation, as the specialist says, "it's a pretty big deal". Those of you who pray or send positive vibes, I'll take anything you got.

Thank you all ahead of time.

With love, Gem mun.

Thanks, you guys. Heading into the big city tomorrow, spending the night with mom tonight. She's a bit weepy, so we are good company for each other. Surgery is thursday. We'll know more then. At least I hope so!!! Biting my nails for the last few weeks. Y'all take care of each other.

Much Gem love.

So I just spotted this. Somehow I missed your post back in February about your mother. Swear to God, you are having the worst luck.

Know I keep you in my thoughts. Here's hoping she makes a swift recovery. She couldn't have anyone better looking after her.

I also missed the post about your mother's illness. I hope the surgery went well and that she's feeling better soon.

Again, thank you for your thoughts, words, and prayers. They must be working! The pancreatic specialist thinks they got all of it, with only one lymph node taken along with half her pancreas. She has to go through chemo...we go see that doctor tomorrow, and he is the one who worked with me during my fight with cancer, which means she's in good hands. She can't eat much and has lost 12 pounds she didn't have to lose, but they say by the third month she might be back to eating semi-normally. Besides part of the pancreas, they took her duodenum, gall bladder, and part of the bile duct; it's an operation called the Whipple. I keep seeing the guy with the toilet paper commercials in my head. She has to have prescribed enzymes now in order to properly digest her food, at least for fats, but that's better than the alternative! We are all coping well enough here. Hope to be playing again soon. You all take care.

Gemmun sends loves and hearts, she's doing better, her mum's doing better, and I only nag her a little bit about taking care of herself. Wink

Have I told you all how grand and marvelous you are? If not, then consider it said!! I think of this place and HUNGER to be here and writing. To interact with you all and just...write. Just play. Just feel the love. Even when I am NOT here I feel such a connection to you guys. Like my own special world sitting in my back pocket (jeans, of course!) there to let my brain meld with yours in writing and plotting and twisting and.....etc. So, in short, even when I am not here, I AM here. And so I thank you all.

Mom is now in two months of radiation and oral chemo. Then she will have two more months of intravenous chemo. The time passes, she keeps planting her garden and picking fruit from her orchard of 80 trees. She just won't act like she is in cancer treatment. It isn't denial...really it isn't. It's just that she doesn't have time for that defeatist crap like being afraid of what her body will do next. So she bloody well ignores it and just carries on like a soldier. I have a pretty great mom, when all is said and done. She just made apricot jam from her trees yesterday when she was supposed to be napping. SicK? Nope, don't have time for that.

Thanks again for all your well wishes and support. Love you guys. I anticipate some free time coming up soon. I look forward to spending it here.

::smooches and huggses::

Thanks for the update <3 We're always here waiting for you!

My mother-in-law (battling a brain tumor for the last 16 years) has a similar attitude of your mom. It makes the world of difference! GO GEM'S PLAYER'S MOM!

She sounds amazing.
