My sweet, kind, smart mother-in-law is about to leave this world and I am heartbroken. No this is not a mother-inlaw joke. Cancer sucks! She was in her 5th round of chemo, to be followed by radiation, to be followed by a trip to Disnyland in Feb for all of us. We wanted her to get through all of her treatment and get some strength back. When she was in the hospital the nurse asked her what year it was and she said 1905. So they quickly ran tests and found it was in her brain. Her very good outcome was changed to 4-12 months with radiation. She was going to start radiation last week, but took another turn for the worst. She is now at home with Hospice. They say a few days to a week. Trying to explain this to a 4 year old is hard. She asked me if Heaven was a nice place and would Jesus take all of Nana's "sicks" away. I said yes, and then she tells me "oh ok Nana can go to Heaven, and then come back to go to Disnyland with us." I do not want her to link Nana's death and Disneyland. Has anyone had to explain this to a child before?
