My mother was a devoted Grandmother to her 4 Grandchildren. She loved her oldest Grandaughter even though she isn’t related by blood. They are bonded by having the same birthdate. She loved my other neice and 2 nephews with all her heart. I know she loved my Brother and his wife. I know maybe deep down in her heart she loved me and my gf, but I may never now. I loved my mom more than I can ever express.
My Mom was diagnosed having Melanoma a few years back and had a nerve removed from her back. She suffered from pain for years after.
It didn’t seem to come back until she was visiting a friend in a few towns over from me and she fell. She was admitted to the hospital and spent 2 1/2 weeks there. While she was there, she was diagnosed with having 8 tumors; 2 in her brain, 2 in her heart, 2 in her spine, and 2 in her liver. They were found to be cancerous. She had a hemmorage in the right side of her brain, and it would be tricky to have her fly home, but she went anyway. When she got home the tumors got worse. They found more.
She was fine when she was with me, but when she got home, she started deteriorating. by the 3rd week she was home (I think) they had diagnosed her with having stage 4 melanoma cancer. She went into the hospital near me in August of 08′ and Died in October of 08′.
