Thank you, everyone. It is comforting to know that you all have been through the same thing I am but it is also heart breaking. I cherish every moment I had with my mom and still pick up the phone to tell her things or ask her advice. Dee, I hope this forum helps gives you some peace. I still have days where I cry a lot but try to lot it consume me. It's just so hard when you lose the one person who has always been there for you regardless of the mistakes you have made.

You have all made me feel better and I feel for all of you. I hope research will find a cure or treatment so other families do not have go through this nightmare. It takes loved ones so fast, that no one can process it. I just keep thinking what happened? How could things spiral out of control.

I had to smile when Darla said "supposedly everything happens for a reason". My mom use to tell me that all the time and said God does not give us things we cannot handle. Well, I hope one day I will be able to understand and handle this.

Hugs to you all!

My deepest sympathy goes to you and your family. I also lost my mom to this horrible disease. She passed away two months to the day of her diagnosis. Life has not been the same since and I am still trying to cope with how she could be taken so quickly.

Thoughts and prayers are with you!

Thank you, Darla. I am so sorry about your husband. My mom was truly my best friend and stood by me no matter what. Her and my step dad had moved to Wisconsin and after he passed away my mom moved back to be closer to me and my son. She hadn't been here 8 months when she was diagnosed. Once she was diagnosed she only came home one time. I couldn't believe what was happening. I have worked in healthcare for over 12 years and had never seen anything so aggressive. It has made me numb and some days it is still unbearable.

I cannot imagine the pain of losing your husband and am glad that you have been able to find support through here.

Love and hugs,

Kerri

My name is Kerri and my mom passed away April  2012 from cholangiocarcinoma. She was diagnosed Feb  2012. In two short months my world collapsed. I'm still not over it  it all happened too quickly to process. I was happy to find this site and that others

are going through the same thing.
