When do they test to know if it has spread? good thoughts that the cancer has not spread! 

If it has spread, is chemo/radiation an option? My mom had stage 4 breast cancer and it had spread some but she is 5 years in remission. I hope you have the same results! sending good vibes

Speaking as someone who works in the oncology field caring for many, many cancer patients and someone who has lost someone to cancer.. 

It is okay to absolutely break down!! It’s so much better to deal with it head on than to pretend like everything is okay! You definitely need to be there for your mom even if you are just listening to her cry on the phone, she knows that you are listening and that you care! Don’t aviod talking to her because you’re afraid you might cry in front of her. Just because you cry doesn’t mean you’re weak or that you’re burdening her, it means you care!! 

Cancer is a life changing experience and it changes everyone differently. Are there going to be hard times? Yes! Are you both going to have bad days? Yes!! But the one thing you have to hold on to in HOPE! Stay positive! Cancer is NOT a death sentence! It’s absolutely terrifying but modern medicine has come so far!! 

As far as putting your job search on hold, I know that’s financially difficult.. But the follow up appointment after surgery when you are informed of all the results is normally the most important and when she will need the most support. 

You just have to decide now that you’re both going to be strong and that you’ll both do whatever it takes to fight!

Prayers are with you and your family!!!

Sending you good thoughts!  My mom was dianosed with breast cancer 2 years ago, and she’s in remission now.  There’s hope, I promise you.  Try to stay positive, and lean on your friends and your husband for support.  Best wishes to you!
