advice needed

advice needed My mum was diagnosed with secondary brain tumours two weeks ago and at the moment is responding well to steroids and will have radiotherapy soon. We are all really stressed with the uncertainty of it all and we are concerned about how much nursing care we will receive when mum gets worse and how much the family are relied upon to look after mum (my dad has retired but my sister and i both work full time and do not live with our parents). A macmillan nurse has been to see mum but she got very upset and does not want to talk about what she said.

any advice would be appreciated
