Topic: It's now been two years....
In a couple of hours it will be two whole years since I lost my Mom to this monster of a disease. I've spent the last couple of hours rereading my posts from the night she died and the one I wrote on the one year anniversary of her death.
I was so fortunate to have this wonderful woman as my Mom. She was an incredible role model. My hope is that I do as well with my son and daughter.
I've tried to take stock of where I am. On the whole I think I'm doing ok and am much farther along the road of grieving. Most days I do ok. I still miss my Mom so very much and would give anything to just hear her voice. I was in Walmart with my daughter the other day and noticed they now have recordable story books. I showed them to my daughter and said I would give anything if I had been able to get Mom to record one of these. We both teared up!
Reading my posts and the responses to them has humbled me. I stand in awe of the love, wisdom, kindness and sympathy you all share with me and others. We are a remarkable community.
I've sat here and thought about and prayed for all of the loved ones we've lost this year...way too many of them...
My prayer is that we all continue to help each other on this journey. I hope one day we can celebrate a cure so no one will have to travel the path we've walked.
Finally, thank you all. You are all Angels.....my personal ones.....and I treasure each and every one of you.
"A prognosis is simply an audit of how truly precious each day is. Live each day to the maximum, celebrate what was, and what is - Don't spend your life looking forward to what will or might be." .... words of wisdom from my beloved son on hearing of his grandmother's CC prognosis.
