    I'm so sorry about your loss and all you've been through.  I'm 50 years old and in a different stage of life, but can still relate to your feelings.

            My mom was diagnosed in September 2010 with early stage 4 lung cancer. Her condition has recently worsened and she is now basically housebound.  She lives on the west coast and I live on the east coast.  For all intents and purposes I am her only daughter.  I have 2 brothers, one who lives 1/2 hour from my mom and the other lives 1 and 1/2 hours from her.  I have been traveling from coast to coast...
