May each day lessen the pain and the memories keep you going. I've been told you never are prepared no matter if you think you are. I'm sure that's true.
Take comfort in knowing you are being thought of.

So sorry for your loss. I lost my dad on May 31st to esophegal cancer it was 2 months after he was diagnosed. Not a day goes by that i don't think of him. People will tell you that you'll be ok but it takes time. If you need to talk, message me. Just take it 1 day at a time. Just know that he is looking down on you and your family everyday! emoticon

"Living a life isn't only having a job that is terrific, satisfying and exciting; it's loving people for who they are; it's not being judgemental; It's saving time for your family; Its's enjoying the things that matter to you; Its' giving to help those less fortunate; Its's protecting the environment so we can enjoy the seasons and feel the renewal of life that spring brings; Its's dancing and laughing and remembering those who paved the way" --Katie Hurley

I lost both my parents to cancer several years ago and so feel your pain. My husband was diagnosed with prostate cancer right after our 5th wedding anniversary and it scared us both to death but thankfully he found a very good doctor at Baylor Dallas where it was removed and so far, his tests are coming back good. I'm so glad you have your children and others to comfort you through this difficult time. We'll be keeping all of you in prayer ~ may God give you the comfort and strength to get through the days ahead.

I am so sorry Kathy. I truly do understand because I lost my soul mate to a super bug C-Diff (the new strain that does not respond to antibiotics a little over a month ago and am still greiving myself. His cancer was AML (Acute Myelogenous Leukemia) and he was in remission from that to the end. He died of the C-diff which he got in the hospital. I realize that his weakened condition with the chemo played a roll in it but the C-diff was that new strain that you may have read about in the news that does not react to any antibiotics.

Hold on and hold on to your family. All I have is a mom. My daughter is in England and is having a terrible time of it being so far away.

If you have not read my last 3 blogs you may wish to go to my spark page and read them. Perhaps they will lend some comfort. My heart breaks for you and wish I could surround you with hug, but sending hugs and support on the computer. Spark mail me anytime you wish to talk and I will be there.

It's only been 3 days since losing the love of my life, Richard, to this dreadful disease called Cancer. He lived 8 months since being diagnosed with Small Cell Lung Cancer. He put up a valiant fight to the end, trying to beat that disease. He had chemo for most of that time, until his body bacame so weak that he could no longer withstand anymore treatments.
We are truly grateful to have had him with us those 8 months, as I know that some people don't even get that long after diagnosis with smc.
God knows, I HATE CANCER!!
I know that somehow, with the love and help of my wonderful children, that I will be okay, but I can honestly say that no matter how prepared you think you are for this to happen, you never really are when that time does come.
All I can say is please give your dying loved one all the love and comfort that you can give, for each day is so precious, and will never come again, and that's the most important thing you can do, I truly believe. I can take comfort in knowing that my Richard truly did know beyond any shadow of doubt, just how loved he was by all of his children and me right to the end. He died in mine and one of our son's arms. I don't think there is a better way to go. We are so glad that his suffering was short. God Bless My Soulmate Richard.
