Well as you all know, my mom is sick with cancer. Well this morning around 4am she was in so much pain. She kept getting sick and she had really sharp intense pains in her chest. My dad had to call 911 for her, and I woke up to find out what happend. She was taken to the hospital and my dad left the house around 5:30 to meet her after my brother and sister got up. They ended up not going to school and I ended up not going to work. We were back and forth to the hospital all day. To remind you, she was there from 4 something AM and the last time we went back to the hospital, they were suppose to have found a room for her. They told us they had one ready around 3:30PM and we waited and waited. It was almost 5:30PM and they still have not put her in a room. I don't know what the hell is going on with this hospital. It is new, just built not too long ago and they still can't get it together. These people around there are stupid fucks. Anyway, my dad just went back to see her and to see if they even put her in that room yet. They are suppose to be keeping her there for I don't know how many days to see why or what is wrong with her. I don't even know anything yet, the doctors never really ran any tests yet. I am starting to get fucking pissed, because they need to run tests to see whats wrong instead of letting her suffer in pain like she is. This really sucks, and I feel really bad.

No offense to you, but you have to realize it's not the hospital's fault that they are overan with people.


Hope all turns out well with your mother.

I understand that, but you have to understand, if you live in Virginia in a town called Suffolk, these people are the most slowest, and dumbest you can find. If we had the money, would have gotten her transported to Norfolk General Hospital, one of the best in Virginia.

She has Pancreas Cancer. I am not going to get into the long details of how she got it, but you can get pancreas cancer from heavy drinking.

Cancer is a terrible thing. I am usually considered a jackass, and I can make fun of everything from black people to multiple sclorosis to AIDS, but the one thing I hold back on is cancer. It covers such a broad range and afflicts so many people.... If I were religious, I'd pray for your mom, but alas I don't believe in the teachings of Christ so I'll just wish her good luck. Hope she gets better, or that her pain subsides (i mean that in most sensitive way possible, in no way am in implying death).

To end on a good note, you should be glad you have a place like WTF.com (as an exmaple, im sure there are many other things like family, friends, etc) to use as a venting tool, or to connect with other humans who are feeling the same you do. Take care.

Yea that does suck <3
Hope your mother gets better, I had the trouble with my mother and you posted so its mutual <3. My mother had a heart attack but was only minor but its still a heart attack. Your anger towards the hospital is from the general idea of cancer with your mother I think. I mean things could work 100% he best way they could and still I think you'd be upset. Which is understandable it is your mother and it is cancer, not saying your fault or anything because if it happens to me. Id cuss a doctor in a heartbeat.
Good luck with that <3

There are many other families dealing with this and when it comes to the hospitals their is realy nothing you can do. See the health care system caters to the rich and famous and that I think sucks; If you dont make enough money they will not even talk to you, and god forbid if you have no insurance much like myself. I am a christian person in most aspects of my life, and I pray for all the people that are sick with this nasty affliction.

Thanks you guys :( Unfortunatly, my mom is not doing any better. When she finnally got a room, she was put on a heart monitor for a little while then taken off. She is still out of it, when you talk to her, its like she is listening but not. When she tries to talk to you, you can't understand her. They now have her on Morpine(don't know the spelling so bare with me). When we were about to leave the hospital, they were getting ready to X-rays on her chest. The doctor saw her this morning and told her that the cancer is just causing the pain...(NO SHIT!) But why would the pain go all the way to her chest and make her feel as if she was about to have a heart attack? The doctor just puts her on antibiotics like thats going to do anything, she does not have an infection. I just hope that her cancer is not trying to spread to her chest. I just can't hold it together when I go in the room to see her. She just looks so helpless :cry:

Cuddles, I do not know what to say. Hospitals sucks and our health system is even worse. I just hope your mom gets better soon. She needs all of your support. If you are scared, imagine how she feels. :( I hope the hospital gets it together.

I just got back from the hospital and heard the worst news I never thought I would ever hear. I am crying writing this right now. The doctor first came in there and told us that her recent x-ray showed a hole in her intestine. The x-ray they did Monday showed no signs of one. Her Pancreas cancer is eating away at her stomach at a fast rate. They cant do surgery because of the condition she is in, the only thing they can do right now is put a tub down her throat to ease the pain. What I am trying to say that is very upsetting is that she may not last but a few more weeks. I don't know what to do right now, she is dieing in her hospital bed at the age of 40. She won't be around for her own bday in April nor my sisters the same week. Whats sad of all, my step dad has to hear this news on his Birthday and their Anaversery Today. I am so upset right now, I cant think of anything else to say.

sorry to hear that cuddles. My grandfarther passed away from lung cancer. I mean not trying to sound harsh but it would probaly be best for her to go and get out of that pain but she will be with you forever as will you be with her. Not much to say.

Well, she is not going to be alright. The doctors are talking like she will never see home, she may not last another month and that she can't come home, she has to have tubs in her stomach to keep it clean.

An update on my mom

Well, I am here to say that my mom may be comming home from the hospital Monday. I still don't know all the details yet, the last thing I heard was that the cancer had eaten a hole in her bile duct(a part of her stomach where all the acids are). They had given her a tube that went from her nose to her stomach to vacum out the acid fluids flowing out of the hole. A few days after that, they had taken the tube out. She was still not allowed to eat anything, all she could have to keep her mouth from not drying out was ice chips. Yesterday, they let her have liquid stuff like chicken broth, jello, and pudden. Today, they let her eat a sandwich. She was craving a burger but she cannot have anything heavy or greasy like that. She is also not allowed to have any kind of carbinated drinks, because it will burn her stomach. I still don't know what is going on with her stomach as far as the hole is concerned. They have to take more x-rays on that to figure it out. The only problem with that is they cannot operate on her anyway no matter how big the whole is, because of the condition she is in.

In all of what I am saying, is that she maybe comming home, but she is not healthy and may pass away in the confort of her own home with the family she loves. That is all the doctors can do for us and her.

...sorry *gives a big hug*, but they gave my dad a few months to live..he lived 2years before he couldn't struggle anymore..with my experience..you have to talk out about it then..and not get as fucked up as I got..but that is not the point *gives a big big hug*
