Long time no blogging

Hello everyone out there in blogging land.

I am so sorry I’m behind on my posts! I’ve been a busy girl, but also dealing with some very stressful news that my mom is progressively going downhill. I don’t want to give up hope, but it’s not looking good at the moment.

My mom has been through so much. The cancer in her brain never fully went away, even with radiation, and it’s now coming back. I honestly don’t know if I’d recommend anyone have full brain radiation. I wish the doctors had told us my mom might lose her memory and not be able to do normal, everyday things we take for granted. I had no idea this would happen. If you don’t know the story, my mom found out cancer had moved to her brain in oct. of 2007. Within a month of the treatments, she was different. It happened so fast that I don’t think any of us really had time to digest it. We had nothing to prepare us for the changes that happened, and they occurred  pretty much overnight. She has progressively gotten worse and my dad pretty much has to do everything for her daily. When I go to help, it is the hardest thing to see! I never in a million years thought I would have to take care of my mom this way. She doesn’t even look like herself.

How can the world be so incredibly advanced but when it comes to cancer, it seems there is no end in sight, just treatments that seem to be archaic at this point. I am pretty emotional about all of this.

I am sure I will continue to write more about this as things progress. Please pray for my mom, dad and family at this time!

  • Melissa Butler - You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers.

  • Beth Little Walker - I just wanted you to know that I will be praying for your Mom and your entire family. Prayer may not change the effects of the cancer, but it can give you strength that can only come from God.

    God Bless,
    Beth Little Walker

  • Sarah Bradley - Juliet, hope you feel okay even though this is a tough time! Thinking about ya!

  • Brooke Turner - Hey girl…just doing some catching up on some blogs. I just saw this post and I am so so sorry to hear that things aren’t looking good. Know that we’re praying!

  • Elmira Weston - Juliet, my heart just aches for you as you watch your dear mother fight this battle. You are so right….with all that we know and do these days, why is cancer still such an unsolved mystery. All the money, time, and efforts don’t seem to have made any progress, and I know you are screaming inside. You are such a strong young lady, and I know your mother would be so proud to know that you are holding her hand all of the way through this challenge, and even though she may not show you, be sure she KNOWS that you are THERE for her!!!! You are so very brave, and I pray that you will find peace before too terribly long.

  • Paige Salley - I continue to pray for you and your family! Stay strong!
