I lost my Mom.. My Best Friend
by Nicole F.
My Mom and I have always been so close. I am an only child and I have just been a Mamma's girl my whole life. Last year in April of '12 I made her an apt with a OB/GYN because she hadn't had a pap smear since her 20's and she was 49 at the time. Her pap came back abnormal and that bothered me. But I always kept an upbeat attitude about it. I thought everything would be ok. She eventually followed up in Oct. of '12 when she started feeling horrible and unable to even work. Her Dr told her off the record it was Cervical Cancer and he referred her to her Oncologist immediately. We had hope from this new Dr that she would get through this. Just a simple hysterectomy and they would remove the tumor. When they went in to remove the tumor, it had grew and was pressing against her lymph nodes. Her tumor had spread through her lymph nodes. Still we had hope. Her incision had to heal before we could start chemo. Complications kept her from starting her chemo until 11 weeks after her hysterectomy instead of 6 weeks, which was when the Dr wanted the chemo to start. Her Cancer was stage 4 by the time she had her 1st chemo treatment. She lost so much weight and was feeling miserable. I hated seeing my Mother go through Hell. I literally begged God to heal her and let her stay with me. She had been staying with me the entire time after the surgery since November of '12. On Feb. 23rd of this year, 2013, the Lord made his decision that He needed another Angel. He took my Mother and with that took away her pain and suffering. I will forever miss her and Love her with everything in me. I love you Mamma. I cant wait to see you again some day.
