Just wanted to let you know that after 12 months of diagnosis of CC (our first doc predict that she has 6 to 12 months), my mother passed away last month. We've been to 3 different hospitals here in India and met with several doctors who are not able to give her any kinds of treatment other than placing stents after stents. She had 1 metal stents with 2 plastic stents.
I think that one of the reason why she was with us for 12 months is that, she cannot read English and she never knew her illness was cancer till her last breath. If she knew that she had cancer, i don't think we will have her this long. We loved her and take care of her as much as we can and never do anything that will hurt or worried her. We never have any family argument in front of her for 12 months.
On 30th Jan, my youngest brother was diagnosed with septicaemia and was in ICU. We never informed my mother about my brother's illness as she was weak that time. We told her that he is going to be alright and fortunately she got good sleep the night when my brother was unconscious. On 31st Jan, we woke her up at 6 AM to let her know that my brother passed away at 5:25AM.
From the day my brother died, her health spiral downhill, she started having nausea, pain on her shoulder and her stomach becomes more and more swollen. We went back to the hospital and she passed away on 14th Feb 5:25 AM exactly 2 weeks after my brother died.
Losing 2 family members in 2 weeks is really devastating for the rest of us. But we are trying our best to keep a positive mind. And I would like to request this CC family that, if you have any members of your family suffering from CC, please love them, talk to them, do their favour, make them happy, don't hurt their feelings, cos you never know when this deadly disease will take away your love ones.
