8 weeks ago i was told my mum was ill and it was plurisy. She was chesty and had symptoms of a cold. She was given antibiotics. A few days later rushed into hospital and told it was pneumonia. By the was she was 66. Then after being rushed in to hospital again the result was she had a bad reaction to the antibiotics so they changed them and sent her home. A few days later she became paralyzed from the waist down. Rushed in again to be told she had lung cancer. She was sent for an mri and after numerous doctors rushing in they sent her for emergency surgery. She had a tumour on her spine. They removed fluid from her spine but then decided after her recovery it was inoperable. She was given two months to live. My family live in England and im in Australia. I got on a flight and mum died within a week. That was three weeks ago. Now today im told my dad has lung cancer. Im numb. He has to have a scan asap so will be in a few days. Im back in oz and beside myself worrying about him and my two sisters.
