@stormy9973:  I just have to say this….you are a fantastic daughter-in-law!!!  Your husband and Mother-In-Law are so blessed to have you.  Just be there to listen.  Your Mother-In-Law will probably need help with practical things once she starts chemo.

Just spend time with her and hold her hand when she’s feeling especially bad. Do what you can and she allows you to do, and know she may not be herself at all times. Chemo is terribly debilitating.

I wish her the best. My Mom had stage 4 Hodgkin’s Disease, and lived for 30 more years!

@stormy9973:  So sorry to hear.  My mom died of lymphoma 3 yrs ago after a long battle.  But she had over 15 years in between.  If the chemo will make her loose her hair -you could offer to shave it off first.  I lived far away from my mom, but I know my SIL offered to do this for my mom, and it made it much easier for her to loose her hair by having her head shaved as soon as it started to fall out, as having it fall out on her pillow was more traumatic to her.  If you live close, you could offer to do tasks that are too difficult when she is not feeling well.  Also giving her small gifts is really nice-like a favorite book etc.  My mom liked to read book series when she had chemo-to help the time pass more quickly and to have a warm sweater or blanket to make her feel more comfortable.  I wish you all well.
