Uncle. I'm Crying Uncle, Cruel Universe...I've had enough. You win, Universe. You win.
Just got word that my mother's leukemia is back and worse than ever.
Doctors told her she's got a year, but only if they start her on a last resort treatment, which will make her feel incredibly ill.
She asked me, "Lori, should I do this? Is it worth it?"
I didn't know what to say.
ADDENDUM: Spoke to her oncologist just now -- my mother only has six to eight weeks if they don't begin the treatment. I think I know what to say now.
