My friends, I was given some bad news Friday, when I went to pick up my son. My ex (his Mom) has been revisited with her nemesis, breast cancer. These are new tumors, and they are inoperable, aggressive. She took her first Chemo treatment Friday, and will be going on a three weeks on, one week off type treatment. Now for the really bad news, as if this weren't bad enough. The statistical prognosis is that she has 12 to 18 months to live. there are a few tumors that were found in the pet scan. They are all inoperable. They are hoping that the Chemo will stop them, and maybe then radioactive pellets can be utilized to kill them outright. She will soon be placed on terminal leave by her doctors. Please pray.
Thanks in advance my friends.

God bless her.  A lot of us (including me) have been through that with a loved one.  Tell her to keep up her courage, fight it with every ounce of her being, and make the most of each  and every day.

 Prayers soon on the way, Billy.
We're on the way out the door for Mass this morning.

You can be sure she has my prayers. I pray that soon a more effective and humane means of treatment can be found for everyone with cancer.

Thanks gents. I can only pray Gods will be done. I know his will is always for the best, even if we can't see his wisdom in it. I am hopeful that this is one such event that he gives us a chance to witness a miracle of faith. We shall see if this is indeed the case.

There you go Billy! Think Positive!  A good, positive attitude is extremely important and can make all the difference!  Prays will definitely be sent to all!  Be there for her if you can, not just for her but for your son and yourself as well.  Had a friend in the same situation.  The hard feels from the divorce kept him away.  She passed and it bothers him to this day that he wasn't there for her.   Even worse, made his kid bitter toward him too.
 
Thats a hell of a Christmas present for everyone Billy!  Wish you could take that one back to Walmart!

Crimey, that is awful cyborg.  I will say an extra prayer for your son..... I would imagine this will be particularly hard on him.  From what I have observed in others kids are pretty resilliant with this sort of thing.  I am certain you will all deepen your relationship with each other through it.  I am sure that will be a positive benefit through the struggle.

Thanks gents. The Ex will be grateful, as you can all rest assured I am. My son really doesn't fully know what all is transpiring. We use big words that he doesn't quite know what they mean. She and I are both a tad concerned about how we will break this to him. Boy, 2008 went out like a complete dud, and 2009 was a total disappointment. Here's to 2010. May it be all any of us could ever hope for.

God bless you all. A friend of ours just went through breast cancer chemo again and she's still with us. The drug combinations can sometimes be really effective these days. They gave her 3-6 months and that was 18 months ago. I hope it works out that way for your ex. Hard to imagine your son having to lose his mom at that age.

I'm terribly sorry for the news Billy. Prayers are inbound. I can't tell you what to tell your son, but personally I wouldn't keep him in the dark. If something were to happen, and she were suddenly gone, he would really be hurt that he didn't get to say goodbye, and didn't know it was coming. Sorry man, I don't know what to tell you. Good luck, and keep them strong buddy.

Billy you should probably have her do a photo portrait session -  mom and son and get something like a 16x20 for him to keep to know she's watching over him. Probably better do that sooner rather than wait.   Man I feel really bad for your son I know this is going to be very hard on him and very challenging for you.  At some point though you will be more free to relocate where you have a better job opportunity so just face the problems one day at a time and be strong for your son.  One thing that we did with our youngest son was found an older lady who was a teacher who tudored kids  as a side job and he went to her house for two or three hours about 3 days a week and it made a huge difference in his school work and to this day he has a strong relationship with her and makes straight A's. 
My Heart is with You Brother.

Cyborg, prayers sent, and Godspeed, Sir! I would tend to agree with Trigger, and Wes, involve the child, that way he cant get any misconstrued ideas of what is happening. I really had problems with this when my Mom was passing, with my then 5yr old son.

Dear Friend Cyborg,
I don't know who you are and you don't know me but reading your posts I can see you are a man of faith and you have the Spirit inside of you; you are correct, God is in control of all things, that's what I also believe or else  I would go crazy; my daughter and I will be praying for your wife and your son and you, also for the doctors so they know exactly what to do; God bless you and your family, and keep the faith.
Best regards.
