Why why why why why?!?

I'm angry. I'm upset. I'm devastated. I'm confused. I'm hopeful. I'm scared.

This week, my mother's doctor called her to say she has three new cancerous tumors--tonsil, lung, and liver. This is her THIRD bout with cancer. She had Hodgkin's twenty three years ago and breast cancer last year. She had two good mammograms. The 3 tumors were discovered when she had a PET scan to look at a nodule on her lung that had been discovered during a hospitalization for a blood borne bacterial infection. The nodule turned out to be nothing, but the three tumors showed up. I'm mad at the world and very depressed and anxious.

Additionally, my grandmother fell down on Monday night and we were at the hospital with her until the wee hours of the morning. She's 83, 84 at the end of this year and is insulin dependent and has alzheimer's. My grandfather hurt himself trying to catch her.

What a crappy week.
