    My 92 year old mother has been hospitalized for shortness of breath. They found a "spot" on her lung which is cancer. They are keeping her in the hospital to keep an eye on the fluid buildup, which I'm not sure is from her lungs or her heart. My mother has never had any kind of illness before. This is hitting me hard. My sister is facing the end stages of cancer too......

    .....If it feels right, please pray for their comfort.....facing the loss of my mother is tough.

    Thanks so much.

    Keeping you, your mother, and your sister in my thoughts. I'm facing up to my mother's impending death as well. She's not sick other than Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) and various cardiovascular issues, but she is 83, getting frail, and a bout of pneumonia could carry her off. I'm more facing her mortality. I hope that what is best for your mother happens, and that you are able to cope whatever that is.

    Deepest prayers for peace in your heart and for you to have the strength to accept what we can't control. My mother is 93 and in a nursing home. In and out of hospice several times. We never know the date. Love, strength and compassion all around you. Peace for an easy transistion for your sister. And God's loving arms around you.

    I hope your mother recovers. She's lived a long life and is fortunate not to have had any problems until now. She still has all her mental faculties, which accounts for a lot at her age. I'm very sorry about your sister. It sounds like she's had it rough. Please take care of yourself.
