Sue,

Coming from an oriental background, I understand how your Mom is feeling right now. Please concentrate on your study. The cultural tradition is such that there's nothing better than achieving your goal (good grades, good jobs, ...etc) if you want to make your mom happy. As a matter of fact, it could well be the best incentive for her to keep on fighting so she could see you graduate, get married,...

My parents are in their 80's and 90's, yet they worry about my health because I've had several surgeries. Be sure to take good care of yourself. It is hard , but you can do it.

Say a little prayer to calm yourself before studying. It could help with your concentration. And remember that both you and your family are in our prayers.
