I never imagined that I would be writing something like this to get help to be able to see my mom one last time. I am absolutely heartbroken and devastated. My mom was just diagnosed with bladder cancer. She had been misdiagnosed for quite a while. Her surgery date was for November 18 and when that date came they opened her up, looked inside, and closed her back up. Apparently the cancer had spread and they were unable to take out the bladder. She has been in the QE2 hospital in Halifax since November 18. This past week she had to have an emergency surgery to have her bowel removed and since she had that surgery she’s had various complications. She caught a couple of infections and she will be able to bounce back from them. Right now all the medical team is doing is to try to keep her comfortable and pain-free. They said that her organs are shutting down that they believe she suffered a mild heart attack and that eventually her heart will give out. I’m her daughter and I’m a cancer survivor myself. I had leukemia twice. It just seems that cancer runs in my family and it takes away everyone that I love. Please help me to get home and see my mom one last time.
