The subject about covers it:

My Mother has been diagnosed with lung cancer

She was in the Hospital for Pneumonia, w/ the possibility of TB and she neglected to tell me that cancer was even an option.

'nuff said

Urgh....sorry to hear that. Hopefully they found it in the early stages. If you need someone to talk to you know where to find me ( remember, my mom had lymphoma, and breast cancer twice, so I can relate to what you're going through).
As far as the diagnosis, she might not have known that cancer was an option either....my mom certainly didn't when she was diagnosed with the lymphoma. It caught the whole family off-guard.

She knew if was on the list of things they were checking, she said so herself. She left it out and accidentally let me think Pneumonia was possibly a return of TB (she had it as a teen or young woman). Mom hates to deal with negative things so traditionally she lets things stew until the are far worse than the start out as. My fathers lack of funeral is an example. Another is the fact that she has twice put down a family pet and then told her children about it, removing any chance to say good bye.

You see the woman is quite whacked in the head, I love her, but she is whacked.

As to the offer of you ear on the subject, thank you. I may take you up on that.
