OT-more bad news
The hits keep coming.
Just found out over Easter Brunch (DH and I forced to secrecy so I need to share here or I will lose it) that MIL might now have lung cancer. She survived cervical cancer when she was younger, breast cancer within the last two years, and now she might have lung cancer. They did a usual full body scan at her check-up and found two large masses in her lungs. She found out via letter on the 19th (can't believe they couldn't call her at least) and they won't have the results until either this Friday or next Friday.
This comes as a very hard hit because MIL has been super conscious of her health over the last few years to the point where she has weaned herself off of her anti-depressants and all other medication, follows a strict diet to help her digestive system and overly sensitive stomach (no dairy,no meat, limited vegetables, very bland foods only), walks daily, doesn't drink. She even cut down on smoking cigarettes and started "vaping" instead, and is on a very small methadone dose (she has cut her dose down more than half in the last year now). She makes all these changes then she gets hit by the only thing left that she still does. She feels like she could be the healthiest person on earth and still be punished. (not justifying smoking, just sharing where her mind is at)
DH is not taking this well and has already changed his FB profile picture and background to cancer cells despite being given instructions to not share this until they know more. (Waiting for the "vague-booking" to start again).
Given that I still have no news on my health crap, I'm going to silently withdraw from Dh and let him cope with this since there is no way he can be of any help to me when MIL is going through this (understandable). I know I have said this before but MIL only has my DH and SIL for help, she has no other family since her skids don't see her as a mom and don't have any contact with her since her husband/their father died. The rest of her family lives out of state and would not fly here to help because they have large families of their own and there would be nowhere for all of them to stay should they come up. (some also have small children making it harder to come).
DH is convinced this is going to be the thing that kills her due to how fast it spreads and how old she is. He doesn't think her body can handle chemo again.
Does anyone have any experience with lung cancer? If it's early is it treatable? (not relying on Google, searching for first-hand knowledge)
