Commentary: Smoking Catches Up With My Mom Suddenly
Last week my family discovered that my mother had cancer. This week she had declined so much that she was in the hospital, with major organs battling to stay active.
We will feel greatful if she lasts the week. While she finally gave up smoking, she smoked for far too much of her life. Hence my commentary. It may be your right to smoke, but if you have children, they don't ever want to lose you.
They want you to live until your 90's so that you can be at all their weddings, and meet all your grandchildren.
Don't miss out. Stop smoking now. Somebody cares. Someone will cry deep and wounded tears at your death. It may not be anyone you know.
But it won't be anyone from the cigarette companies.
In my Irish Jokes section I ran a joke about how the Irish have a group called Nicotine Anonymous. If you feel the urge, someone comes over and takes you out to get drunk.
I think, in the long run, that would have been better for my Mom, and me, who has had had health problems my whole life that can be traced to the impact of secon-hand smoke.
Still, I love my mom, and saying goodbye is going to be damned hard.
I just want to try to save a few people the trouble of dying and hurting their loved ones too.
How many smokers does it take to screw in a light bulb?
None. Their oncologists are their to do it for them.
Sorry I am in such a lousy mood this post.
Time to go to the hospital. Dad just called with a lot of the gory details.
What measures she did and did not want taken on her behalf.
And to think we all got annointed just last week.
Good idea to get regular check-ups and if you have funny feelings don't let your doctor wave them off.
