I wish I can say that the last few weeks were easier but they haven't been. There have been a handful of good days, some ok days and quite a few bad days. Most of the bad days involved mom dealing with the various chemo side effects, the pain from the cancer itself and the mental strength to get through this. There have also been some unexpected twists on the genetics front that I prefer not to discuss at this time but will in the near future.
On top of that, a few days ago, my mom's pet rabbit passed away suddenly. My mom loved her little Maya and was very down. Apart of me regrets dragging mom to the Animal Humane Society a few months ago and having her adopt Maya. Ugh...I wish I can take my mom's pain away :-(

I'm a bit sad this week because my Aunt is going to be heading back home to Guyana. She's been a godsend to me throughout these five weeks she's been here. She stayed with mom and took care of so much. She alleviated a lot of stress off of me and has really stepped up when it mattered. I honestly don't know how we will do this without her. She was my angel on earth.
