Bad News

After recovering from cancer surgery a few years ago, my mom has quite naturally been getting a LOT of checkups...all X-Rays have come back negative though.
Friday, when seeing a doctor for an unrelated matter (chest pains) she had an ultrasound done. The heart doctor immediately sent her to get an MRI.
It seems that Mom has a rather rare form of cancer that does not show up on X-Rays...and it has been steadily growing these last three years...to the point that it is causing her pain now.
There is not much information other than the fact that there is a LOT of it and her recent symptoms (extreme fatigue, dizzyness and nausea) are not at all encouraging.
I've moved back into the sewing room at my parents house as I will undoubtedly be needed shortly and we await further word. But this does not look good.

3 Catching up on some old posts, so this is the first time I've seen this, a month on.     Damn, man, you have my sympathy.
