Hi guys.. Well, I normally don't post up sappy threads when I am down. But this time I think it would be good to hear some input and stuff. My mom got real sick a few days ago with a very high fever that wouldn't go away. I asked her a few questions on her symptoms and figured that she could possibly have a Urinary Tract Infection. After 4 days, she went to the hospital to get checked up bc she was not getting any better. Well, my aunt called me earlier today( I live in CA, my mom and rest of the family lives in FL) and her friend started bursting out crying and told me that my mom indeed DOES have a UTI, and also has a tumor in 1 of her ovaries and she MAY have cancer. I spoke to my dad a few times today and he's been by her side all along. (they are divorced) He assured me that she is okay (for now) and that he will keep me updated daily on her condition. She's still at the hospital and they are still doing whatever else they need to do. He is upset that my aunt would call me to tell me bad news like that. He mentioned that he wouldn't call me to tell me things like that to worry me. I kinda do think that my dad is the type of person to hide things from me... I was going to get a flight out tonight or early morning...but then coincidently my final exams are TOMORROW and 1 more on Saturday. My dad convinced me that she is okay and if anything he will let me know but as for now he thinks its best if I stay here n finish up my school work then come over. I am currently in Nursing school and after Saturday is going to begin a fresh term. I may withdrawal and go back home to be with my mom. If anything were to happen to my mom, I truly will drop my life over here and go back to her. She lives alone and has no one. I am glad that my dad is there for her and he even mentioned that after she gets better, he is going to ask her to come live with him while he takes care of her. I just hope that she gets well soon. My dad assured me that he is there to take care of her and everything so that made me feel much relived. I have much more things I want to express but my thoughts are so scrambled up that I don't know what else to say. Sorry if I mixed up my thoughts. Thank you for reading.
