My mother keeps getting hit from every side it seems.

I've been my mother's Caregiver for a little over 7years now. She was diagnosed with COPD and requires 24/7 home oxygen. She lives with me and my fiancé.

She has her good and bad days as expected in anyone battling chronic illness, but in the most recent weeks her breast(both) have begun to swell. She had a mammogram earlier today and the technician sent her report in to her doctors within hours of having it done (which I'm very impressed with) ...the doctors office phoned us to let us know they found an irregularity in the right breast and want her to come in for further testing.

I know, I know this is just standard precaution and I shouldn't worry about it until there is actually something to worry about it. It's hard though. It's hard to keep a brave face on so my mother doesn't start spin. It's hard to not spin myself. I don't want to think the worse, but after everything she's been through (COPD is just the tip of the iceberg) I find myself preparing for the worse.

It never gets easier being a witness to someone else's pain. I don't expect it. I'm just having hard time being brave today, I guess Caregivers have their good and bad days too.
