Mom is more imp .. you can figure out other things in life. If she was in your situation she’d give up everything to be with her son. Praying for her

Please go and take care of your mom. Don't regret later like me..

Very sorry to hear this. Hope she has a speedy recovery. While I personally have not experienced this... I know many people who have. Based on the current status in the US with immigration- unfortunately, it is recomendad that you do not travel at this time considering that your visa is going to expire. They gave my husband problems to return to the US when his US passport was within 6 months of expiration! Really sorry to say this... but just want you to be safe with your status. Please consult an immigration attorney to help you if there are special familial circumstances that create an exception. Take care. And I hope your mom is ok.

OP - I hope your mom feels better. You should definitely take time off to spend with your mom. I took a year out when we found out my dad had terminal illness. It helped him so much! The doctors had given up and said he had just a few months. He lived for 2 years after that. I honestly believe it’s because I was at home with him. It brings a lot of positivity, and energy when kids are home.
