Topic: missing my husband Tom, (Dad of 2 and granddad of 3: Didi)
I am writing this after my wonderful husband, Tom died in Feb., 2008 of cholangiocarcinoma. I have not up to this point been able to write about it, although I did go onto this site during his battle. Tom was diagnosed In July of 2007. He fought for 71/2 months and thought initially that he could beat it. He was the strongest person I have ever met. He was so brave--he didn't want to leave us. Surgery was not an option--he went through 21/2 rounds of chemo--the side effects were very hard on him. He was in the hospital for a week in Dec. 2007, and then went back in the hospital Feb.4 2008 and died Feb. 9th 2008. He was 58, we were married for almost 39 years. We miss him terribly. I am thankful that he isn't suffering, but we feel that he still had so much to give. Our lives will never be the same. He loved the Louisville Cardinals. Everytime our little grandson sees a cardinal bird he says "hi Didi". So sweet and so sad. Thinking of and praying for all the families that have gone through this terrible disease with their loved one.
