My Mom is Probably Going to Kill Me






I am not sure if my Mom will kill me for trespassing in her Blogger account and writing to you (or for putting up this picture) but I think she will be ok with it. Lately, my Mom has been having a rough time. I know she has mentioned the bats flying around in her stomach, but now I would say that they laid their nests and they don’t seem to be leaving anytime soon. As a result, my Mom hasn’t been able to really eat or drink anything since the middle of October. Can you imagine?



She had a biopsy (the beginning of December) to find out what was going on and she did not receive her final results till Feb. 4….that being that the cancer cells in her stomach cannot be identified. The results are inconclusive because the cells resemble stem cells rather than tissue cells. The doctors have told her that they would treat it as a breast cancer (even though it is extremely rare for breast cancer to spread to the stomach) as they believe they are 90% sure that is what it is. At her appointment, they told her that she would start combination chemotherapy today. She heard these results on the day my Grandma died. I had no way of telling her that her mother had died as she spent the day at the doctor’s. Unfortunately, she was there so long and in so much pain; she was unable to visit her Mom one last time.




My Mom continued to suffer in her pain as she had for the last couple of months (believing that this is what it is like when you have cancer in your stomach) but it was becoming unbearable. She went to the hospital on Sunday and she is there still. She has still to find a balance between no pain and no nausea. She is still unable to really eat (I don’t think she could finish a whole yogurt cup in a day) or drink and we are thankful and that she is being taken care of and finally getting fluids in the hospital. The goal is to get her comfortable before they can think of any sort of treatment at this point. Hopefully, this will happen soon.



As for my Mom, I think her spirits are ok. I know that she is quite tired and frustrated. She throws up so many times a day and she is in quite a bit of pain in her legs and back. I imagine she was also quite upset that she hasn’t really been able to grieve for her Mom since she has been in so much pain and she was unable to attend the funeral. How shitty.



I feel like I am rambling but I need to get some of this out. I would normally tell my Mom what is bothering me but I am obviously not able to right now. I also feel that you should know what has been happening as I know her blogger friends are very dear to her. We often hear names and stories of her friends and I know that she takes so much comfort and pride in her relations. I thank you all for your support, prayers and well wishes. They have always meant so much to my Mom and to us, her family. Hopefully, my Mom will recover and be home real soon. I can’t imagine anything but.



Angelique

Angelique,
Thank you so much for posting. I have been wondering, and worrying. I also thank you for posting pictures. I feel close to Renee, but I have never seen a picture of her, so it is so nice to see her beautiful self. Thank you so much. I hope she feels better soon.

Angelique, how kind of you to tell us this yourself. I was wondering, as it's been so quiet here.

How can we help? Shall we send care packages? How can we support you and your dad? Please do post what you can, specifically, as I love your mom so much and would love to be of help. I will be praying for her and your family. Please give her a gentle kiss from me. XOXOXOXOXOXO

thank you again, angelique. your family is incredible. who could ever say why any of you have to go through all that you have, but i do know that you and nadeline and nathan and your dad and jacquie, just like your Mom, could not be more special, more worthy.

Bonnie, Original Art Studio said...

Angelique: Thank you so much for sharing this news about your dear mother. I'm so sorry for this unrelenting suffering your family is going through - and especially for Renee. I am glad, however, that she is where she can be nourished intravenously, and hopefully her pain and suffering can be minimized.

Please give her a big hug for me and let her know that my thoughts are with her.

My thoughts go out to you and your family. Take care of yourselves too.

Sassy Scribbles said...

I'm honestly lost for words but I know in my heart that it is all about love and support for dearest Renee, I pray that she recovers fast and her pains be gone.

Thanks Angelique for sharing this with the photos, I'm sure she wont mind for they are all reflections of her great and cheery spirit despite all these.

with much love,

Angelique,
Thank you so much for this update. It saddens me to hear that your mom has been feeling so awful for so long. I think of her everyday and my thoughts and prayers are with all of your family.
I hope that the doctors can do something to get rid of the pain and find her some comfort.
Your Mom has a very kind spirit, I'm sure she won't hurt you.
I am also so sorry for the loss of your Grandma during this difficult time.

Debra She Who Seeks said...

Every bit of healing energy that I can find, raise, beg, borrow or steal, I am sending to Winnipeg for Renee. Hugs and kisses during this terrible time!

Country Wings in Phoenix said...

Oh Angelique sweetie...
This was just precious of you. I thank you so much for letting me know about sweet Renee. I am so, so sorry to hear about her sweet Moma. You take care of your Moma now, she needs you.

I have a prayer journal that I keep at my bedside with all of my prayer needs inside. I will be adding Renee and praying for some relief in all of this. She needs some nourishment, ofcourse it is helpful to have the IV's, but still. Please let her know I will be lifting her up in prayer.

Be strong sweetie. This is such a rough path to travel. We were there just this past October 23rd with my 33 year old neice, also passed to cancer. I know what your pain is like.

God Bless you Sweetie...Much love and hugs to you both, Sherry

A Thousand Clapping Hands said...

Angelique,
So glad you found some time to post an update on your mom, thank you. I so enjoy her writting. I'm so glad I stumbled onto her blog a while back. She has helped me find insight into my heart as a mother, wife, sister, daughter and friend. Her heartfelt words, not only of the harsh truth about her battle with this terrible disease but more importantly about her love for life and all the people she holds so dear, have touched me so deeply and inspired me equally so.
I will continue to pray for her comfort and healing and for your entire family.

Allegra Smith said...

Oh Angelique, you know how close your mother and I are. Please send me the phone number at my private email - she has it on her address book and I will call her and talk to her. I miss her so much, and I am so grateful you have updated the blog. I know everyone who comes here wants to know how she is and everyone is rooting for her and Jacquie as well.

Please give her a big hug and tell her that I love her and that everything is going to be alright.
And you, you give yourself the hug I wish I could give you for all the wonderful things you are doing and what you are having to bear these days. Love from here.

Baino said...

Angelique, thank you so much for keeping us in the loop. I think we all knew things were not good for Renee as she's been posting less and less and not responding to emails. You my darling are a good daughter to let us know, I hope mine will do the same should I not be able to keep in touch. Thank you and please keep us updated on mum's progress and let me know if she needs anything my email is bainbridge1610atgmail etc. And if you feel like rambling sweetheart, please feel free to do so.

Please, give her my love and tell her I'm still rubbing that silly reindeer's tummy! Thinking of you all up there from way down here in Australia. You are a special and wonderful family going through hard times. . . very hard times. Look after your Dad too! There is no reason for her to be in pain. Be diligent and forceful but polite with the medical fraternity. Her comfort is our concern. Bless you!

Micki said...

one little acorn said...

Angelique & Renee, how beautiful you both are. Your Mum is amazing Angelique and has shown such love and compassion to me, in the midst of her own pain and grief. I can't possibly express how much that has meant to me and how blessed I feel to have found her via blogging and (unfortunately) cancer. I am so sad that she is in such terrible pain. I send you all my love and all my wishes to your Mum and your family. I hope that things improve and that the pain is treated quickly.
The love of family is everything. Continue to hold them close. You will be in my thoughts.

Thanks for the update, Angelique. I am so sorry for all that your family has suffered, and so frustrated that I don't have a magic wand that I could wave to make it all go away and just have been a bad dream

Your mom, and now all of you, are in my thoughts and prayers.

Blessings and love to you and your family, Karin

Linda said...

Angelique! Thank you so much for telling us what has been happening with your mother. She is such a wonderful trooper and a fighter. And she is dearer to us than you would believe possible. We love her to pieces.

We know that only the conditions you describe would keep her away from her computer and are hoping along with all of you that the pain will be managed soon.

We love hearing from you too. I hope you will hijack your mom's account often!

Loving thoughts are with all of you, always.

xoxo right back at you

studio lolo said...

Dear Angelique,

Thank you, thank you!! I was just talking to another blogger friend who was thinking of calling to get a status and just to ask how renee was doing.
How very sad that she couldn't attend the funeral.
I'm thrilled that she's at least in the hospital getting fluids at the very least, but also getting (hopefully) whatever medical support she needs.

The blog world is definately emptier without your mom's huge presence. Please send her my love and tell her to do what she needs to do.

Wine and Words said...

I'm having flash backs to my kidney stone... the pain, nausea, inability to eat. I can't imagine it as chronic. Poor Mom. And she looks so vibrant on the playground horse. What a great picture. Wishing it were different won't make it so, but...I wish it were different. Wish she were able to eat casseroles of love at Grandma's wake.

LDWatkins said...

We all love Renee so much, all of you. Even with all of her pain, she would come to our blogs and leave comments, seemed she was determined to do so. Thank you so much for this post. She is always on my mind and in my prayers. Love, Lynda

Marion said...

Oh, sweet Aneglique, how kind of you to keep us up to date on your precious Mother, our friend. I don't think she'd be mad at you at all for sharing with us. I had to laugh at the first picture because I have a similar one when I was in my 20's.

You must know that our prayers and thoughts are with our precious Renee and you and your entire family. Take care and give her our love. Blessings!!

yoborobo said...

Darling Angelique, thank you very, very much for telling us how your dear mother is doing. I worry about her so much. We all do. She has become very special to so many.

Your dear mother is always in my heart and prayers. I'm glad she's letting people take care of her, and I pray she finds relief from the pain. Please give her a kiss for me, a gentle one, on her forehead.

And please don't forget to take good care of yourself and your two beautiful children.

You are all my my prayers.

Hugs and love,

Anonymous said...

angelique this is so frustrating to read. I can't bear to think of your mother suffering like this.
I don't know if this will help but please look into alternatives, the western way of dealing with cancer is toxic! they are leeches making money off of the suffering of others. I heard about this group on a radio program on health on www.Hayhouseradio.com and made note of it:

http://www.peopleagainstcancer.net/about.asp

I don't know anything other than a doctor was mentioned who had been able to cure cancers but not in the conventional way. I am not affiliated with them, but I encourage you to do a bit of research. They may be able to recommend something to give your mom relief. Cancer should not be rampant in this day and age! Please look at more natural ways of helping your mother, she deserves a beautiful life.

you can delete this post if you like, I wanted to get the message to you

Dede said...

I don't think your mom could ever be to upset with you for to much of anything. You are so sweet to keep us updated on what has been going on with her. I thank you for that. I truly wish her home and feeling better very soon. Let her to know that we love and miss her! You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers....

(((HUGS)))

Linda Sue said...

Angelique, Thank you so much for word of Renee and the adorable photos, she is so shy about her photos and she is such a beauty inside, outside and all around. I hope that she is getting some sort of nourishment- intervenous feeding is a drag but it keeps one alive for yet another round ...what a strong , lovely woman, she is so loved all over the world and beyond.
She knows, and I am sure that she can feel the universal love hug around her. Thanks for this post, darling.

Dear Angelique i did not know this but did hear from one of the ladies from our group yesterday. Oh I am so sorry everything your Mom is going through and now has been in hospital this week.
Please give her hugs and love from me. I hope she can come home soon. She never leaves my thoughts and is always in my prayers.
Love Sally

Dean Grey said...

Angelique!

Your mom is probably going to kill you but all of us are going to be thanking you for the update!

Even though it's not good news, it's good to know how Renee is doing nonetheless.

Sometimes things get thrown at you all at once. Wouldn't life be wonderful if all the bad bits were evenly spaced out?

Renee is a trooper and she will get through this. I know it!

All the best to you and your family during this difficult time!

Lilacrobin said...

Dear Angelique.... your name suits you. We are all very thankful to have word of our much-beloved Renee....although this is obviously not the news we wanted to hear. It is good, though, that she is in hospital getting fluids... please tell her we all love her and pray for her. She is one of the bravest women I have "met" and knowing her has enriched my life. You had a remarkable Grandmother, you have an amazing Mother and you - are their Angel. We pray for all of you.

Thank you for the update. I know Renee will understand and not be angry!

Deborah said...

Thank you so much, Angelique, for updating us. I have been ever so worried about her and lifting her in prayer. She is so loved by this community, the bloggy world, and she has given us all so much, that could never be put into word.

Lord Jesus, who hath said
Ask and you shall receive,
Seek and you shall find,
Knock and it shall be opened to you.

Through the divine intervention of Thy Most Holy Mother, Mary,
I knock,
I seek,
I ask
That my prayer be granted.

Please relieve your faithful servant, Renee, of her pain and let her eat and drink of your everlasting life. Amen.

Clarity said...

Dear Angelique,

Your mom has shared so much of her family, I am glad to see your goodness in print/person.

Please let her know she is loved, thought of and prayed for. I am also going to send a short email to her (if you can get into her email, please read it to her)

With love and prayers, Clarity, xxx.

P.S. Thank you.

Thank you Angelique for invading your mom's Blog. While this was not the news I wanted to hear, it does not surprise me. Every day I check this Blog. I have been concerned for some time as the regular Blogging was not taking place.

I miss Renee deeply. Our Tuesday group has missed her presence greatly.

Your family has been through so much this past year. So much illness resulting in a loved one passing on. My prayers continue to go out to your whole family.

Love, Noreen

A very hard message for you to write I think, but one that all of us who are friends of your mom are appreciative of - although it is hard to read of all the pain Renee is going through. Thank you for the update.

Renee is so loved by all of us, and I know that each and every one of us that hold her dear are sending healing thoughts and prayers to her at this moment.

....may the bats shrivel and die - NOW......

Dearest Angelique,

Thank you so much for the update and the wonderful photographs. I cannot even begin to imagine the level of frustration and sheer hell these past months have been for your dear mother and all of you. It's the most helpless situation, and the fact that she has been able to endure it for so long says a lot about her strength and the support of her family. I've been praying with all my might. Though it's upsetting that there are no definite answers, I'm relieved that she is receiving treatment. Please tell your dear mother that when I walk with my fists closed, I now imagine I am holding her hands; that my arms are long and I imagine sending her a warm embrace; that my heart sobs yet is so full of love because she taught me how to open my heart. We will pray and wait. And darling Angelique, please know that we are here for you, too. Always.

With deepest love,
bella

angelique, i am pretty sure your mom is going to think that what you've done is one of the most thoughtful things you could have done for her. i am a mom too and it touched me very deeply.
thank you for letting us know what's going on, it's been hard not knowing. Please take good care of yourself and find the support you need also.
We'll all be praying for your Mom, your family. I'm so sorry to hear of your grandmothers passing.

Thank you for keeping us posted on Renee's condition. Know that all of us who have come to know her through her writing are thinking of her and praying for her and all of you her family.God Bless!

Jaliya said...

Bless you, Angelique xoxo

I'm one of the many who have keenly felt your mom's absence online lately ...

I love the goofy photo of your mom that you posted here ... There's obviously such a deep and willing-knit bondedness in your family ... This must be what keeps you all so sane and centered on love when there has been so much loss for you all ...

Please tell your mom I love her ... She has been such a cherished, wise, witty friend to many people ...

Be well, dear daughter of Renee.

Much love from Jaliya xoxo

Ces said...

Oh let's see, she'll probably say, "Oh Angelique!" and then kiss you. She is very proud of you Angelique, she loves you, Nadalyn and Nathan very much. But did you really do it without her permission? Hahaha! How brave of you. Thank you Angelique, a sigh of relief has been heard around the world, literally. What a sweet loving face your mother has and you Angelique are her daughter true and through. You can always talk to me Angelique and it will never be considered rambling. Thank you again and take care. Please give your mother a hug and a kiss for me and you have to say it is from me and when you kiss her on her cheek please make a loud smacking sound and say MWAH!

Caroline said...

Angelique - I am so sorry to learn that Renee is in hospital just now. I send love, hugs and will keep her and the family in my thoughts. Wishing you all lots of strength. Caroline

A Cuban In London said...

Angelique, thanks for this update. I was worried about your mum's health the last time she posted about the damned bats. Wish your mum better amd I hope the bats vacate their nests soon. By the way, that was a great picture to upload. I agree with you, she won't be mad. It captures her true self: wit and humour.

Many thanks.

Greetings from London.

Prayers to you and your dear mother.

Jos said...

Hello Angelique. Thank you so much for the update. Hard times for your family ... all. As you can see from the range of comments here, your mom has inspired a whole host of people from all around the world to reach out and support one another in love and friendship through good times and bad. It's quite something isn't it? She's quite a woman. I'm sure no small measure of that spirit is in you too.

I hope Renee is starting to feel the benefit of the hospital tratment. I continue to pray for you all each day. xx Jos

Rick said...

Ugh! too many pages up! I think I just sent you the wrong comment! Please delete it, Angel
Now to the real one. Thank you for posting this. As said in the Wizard of Oz, "I think I shall miss you the most"
That's how I feel when I don't see your mom around my place. I worry and selfishly miss her. I know all's right in the world when she drops by for a cup of coffee.
This made my day. Thanks again and give her my love~rick

corvedacosta said...

Thanks for posting this. I am sure she is not upset with you for doing this.

I know she will feel better. Morning will come...a new day will begin.

Hi Angelique,

Thank you so much for letting us know about Renee. I was talking to my husband saying that it was so strange that Renne hasn't entered my giveaway so I came to her blog to see and found this sad news. I know she is a strong angel and soon she will be feeling better.
My prayers are with her.
Love
Flor

ps. Tell her I entered her name in my giveaway.

Laura Hegfield said...

Angelique, I've been out of sorts myself this week so am just getting around to friend's blogs...I am sorry about that...please tell your Mom that she is always in my bedtime prayers.

You are such a sweet daughter to reach out to the blogging community to let us know what is going on with your Mom. I am so sorry dear, this is all so much for you to loose your Grandma and have your Mom be in so much pain and not be able to talk to her about what you are feeling.

sending you all much love and light and healing energy

Angelique, your mom was in my thoughts today - that is why I popped in to see how she was doing.

Strength and clarity and love - I wish that for you all.

Thank you for the caring update. I think the grief is making this much worse. Renee is a caring person and sends out so much positivity into the world. I trust that that positivity will rebound back to her and assist in her healing. Our love to Renee and you children as you care for your mom. I hope Jacquie is resting peacefully as well.

soulbrush said...

how is she doing now angelique, i woke up today with thoughts of her on my mind and rushed to my computer to check if there was any news.i hope those awful bats have left for good and she is rehydrated and comfortable, give her lots of wonderful kisses from me, feel so helpless - wish i could help.

MBNAD woman said...

Angelique

What a lovely daughter ... Renee and your father have made a very good job of bringing up such a caring and kind woman.

I stumbled on Renee's blog several months ago and she makes me weep and smile, sometimes in the same post. In the past, she has often dropped by my daft ramblings to make a comment or share a smile and I have missed her of late though put that down to all the other sad events in your family.

When you give her a hug, can I piggyback a small cyber hug as well?

~* Peach Street Folk Art *~ said...

Angelique,

I can't explain how I love your mom and your family through her. I feel like I know her the way I would if she were my neighbor and I love her like she was family. And the strange thing about that is I didn't even know what she looked like until she gave us the gift of a photo in December. I can't wait to tell her how I had pictured her, a tall statuesque woman. Powerful and strong. Of course I always knew she was beautiful. I had a laugh at the petite woman I saw in the picture. But to me, your mom will always represent strength, her spirit is as strong and powerful as I had imagined her as being.

I was so sorry to hear about your grandmother, she was obviously an exceptional woman. Look the wonderful family she left on loan to the rest of us. And we are grateful!

Tell your mom she has to feel better soon because I have some exciting news I want to share with her! I'm still betting on her and I love her to pieces!

Take care Angelique,

Love, Jamie

Thanks Angelique for giving us the update. We loooooove Renee, and can't to have her back here writing again. Give her a big schmooch from me and tell her I said 'hey'.

BT said...

Angelique, thank you thank you so much for taking the time to post such a helpful and explanatory post for us. I know I have been worried sick about Renee and I know all her other friends have been in the same worried state. Do give her our love. I know you cannot possibly mention us all individually but just tell her we are all wishing her well and loving her for ever.

I am glad she is in hospital where they can monitor her properly and provide the right treatment but so so sorry that she is in such pain and being sick and unable to eat. That is so awful.

With loving, healing thoughts sent from Ireland,

You are so very loved, both on this side and in heaven. I wish I could take your pain away. I know everyone wishes that they could. You have been such an inspiration and teacher to us, that when it does become your time to go, you will be so so missed. I will be sending you prayers and love and peace. If you decide to go to heaven, then that is okay. I know you must be very very tired. But if you do, just know that you will never be forgotten here on earth. That you are our angel and loved so much. I love you Renee. I wish I could give you a giant hug, and lay next to you and just hang out and talk. Love you Love you Love you...xo

Take care Ang, you could never ramble too much for me, as AJ and your mom say, "Together Strong” keep the strength and know that I love you so very much.
Prayers will forever flow.

Thank you for writing. She wouldnt mind at all. She is a special inspiration to everyone. How can you not love that lady...you cant. She loves you kids and is so very proud of yall.

How is Jacquie?

You can carry the blog and talk about it all, thats what it started as for your mom. A way to escape, vent and get off your chest so to speak.

I hope she was able to get the cards I sent to her and Jacquie...You are always welcome with open arms into my and everyones lives.

Kiss Jacquie on the forehead also for me and say "Love is strong with her family"

is oh so strong

As teenagers
we tested her will
A Mother's Love
guided us still

The college years
brought her new trials
A Mother's Love
kept hopeful smiles

Finding love
a new life did begin
A Mother's Love
welcomed them in

Starting a family
gave new appreciation
A Mother's Love
such steadfast dedication

Busy lives
yet never far apart
A Mother's Love
always dear to our heart

Age advances
we come back and embrace
A Mother's Love
wrinkled, yet full of grace

Elderly frail
mother changes her style
A Mother's Love
come sit for a while

Twilight's near
as we hold hands
A Mother's Love
our heart commands

At her last breath
Peace and Comfort come
A Mother's Love
we gain strength from

Feathered wings
surround us with love
A Mother's Love
now comes from above

Grief is short
when we remember when
A Mother's Love
is free to live again

Find comfort
in God's Love and Light
A Mother's Love
still hugs you every night

Written with Love and Light,
