Family problems

Posted on

Fun times, fun times indeed…   My grandmother last year was initially diagnosed with throat cancer.   Now this came on as a surprise to her supposedly.  However since the tumor at the times was very large I don’t think it came on suddenly.  I believe she just ignored it.  Half of her throat was gone when the disease was “discovered”  it had spread badly enough that it had gotten into her mouth.  She was on a feeding tube and medicines for months.

Then out of the blue my one aunt told my mother that my grandmother was cured of it.  Not remission, which as far as I knew is all that can happen with cancer; except in very rare cases.  Also my grandmother is worse than a chain smoker and drinks her breakfast, so… eeehhhh… I don’t think it was “cured”.

 

My proof…?

 

I got a call last night from my mom saying she is going to be in the area next week as my grandmother is now dieing of her throat cancer that my aunt told the family she was cured of.  Seems when my grandmother left the hospital, got her feeding tube removed she went right back to smoking.

I guess the one “upside” of this is at least it’s as smoking cancer.. and not some other kind; and I don’t smoke. Yes I realize that cancer of any kind is not good, but this is my effort of finding an upside to anything.

That’s it for now… sighs

 

BE Well. Be Safe,  and Blessed Be…

  1. Kinda mixed… as I’m not at all close to my grandparents on my mom’s side I was to my father’s parents. They are both dead already. My mom’s parents… I feel bad for both of them as my grandfather is in a home due to Alzhimer’s(sp?)

  2. None of my business but wondering are you close to your grandma? (emotionally) What’s it feel like to watch this play out? W/ my grand parents it was a mixed bag…closer to one set than the other.
