Don't know how to deal with Cancer
Friday, September 13, 2013
Just a quick blog to let out some emotions. A lot has been going on that I need to catch you up on. My first 5K, a big SP meetup that was AWESOME, 1st day of school pics of my kids, and so much more! Right now though I’ve been consumed with dealing with grief again. That sneaky lil bugger creeps back up on you no matter how much you try to not let it.
My aunt has been very ill and is being cared for by hospice right now. Cancer has taken another victory while her family is left to pick up the pieces. It’s a very difficult time to say the least. My boyfriend has been so good about comforting me in the past and being there for me but this time it’s different. You see, he lost his daughter at the age of 7 to cancer and so this is bringing up some grief and issues with him as well. He acts like he knows it all when it comes to cancer since he has been through a similar experience. I’ll tell him my aunt is still hanging on, (in a coma), and he’ll be like, yea I know. “How do you already know that, I just told you,” I said. “Stephanie was in a coma and we all gathered around for a week. A WEEK we had to watch her die.” Sigh. I’m sorry, I’m not as knowledgeable as you when it comes to cancer.
Anyways, that’s my vent for the day. Just needed to get that off my chest. If you could all say a prayer for my aunt’s peaceful passage into God’s loving embrace, I would greatly appreciate it. It’s a very difficult time for all of us. Thank you!
