Topic: Mom battling cc for over a year and dad dies

Hi to all you wonderful people.

I just need to say so , so here goes.

My mom, Mary has been thru chemo and is hospitalized for 65 days with a bile drain, antinausea pills and a series of infections she has over come. My dad who was 76 and still working and preparing meals, and visiting her in the hospital, suddenly had a minor heart attack, survived it had 2 stents put in, then was told he could go to work in 2 days. They kept feeding him blood thinners and even a pill to thin out his veins after he'd been complaining a massive headache after the procedure and they couldnt get his wrist to stop bleeding where the stent went thru. He did of an aneurysm the next day. His funeral was yesterday. I'm the primary care giver for my mother and today everyone who helped with the funeral is exhausted and I just needed to tell my story.

A nurse just told me that he believes every ones day of death is written. May god bless my father soul, forgive him and give the rest of us strength.

Thanks for listening.
Natasha

Mom and dad forever in my heart.  I love you always. April 14 2009 mom passed and March 1 2009 dad passed. As my mom said to me 'What ever happens, be strong.'

Dear Natasha, we are so very sorry to hear of your dad's passing. It's all so unbelievable that so much can happen in so short of time. Perhaps your dad went on ahead to pave the way for your mom to follow down the road when its time. You sound like a wonderful daughter and he knows you will be strong and
do what has to be done. Our prayers are with you.

Natasha,

I am so sorry for your loss.  This must all seem so surreal right now. I too believe that everyones day of death is written & that no one or nothing can change that. Remember that your Dad will be there waiting for your Mom. Try to get some rest as you will need all the strength you can gather to support your Mom through the rest of her journey. She is very lucky to have such a wonderful caring daughter. Take care. My thoughts & prayers are with you & your Mom.

Love & Hugs,

Natasha,
  I am so sorry for the loss of your Father. I, too, believe in predestination, and also believe that God has a plan for each and every one of us, although we can not always see what it is with our little, human pea-brains! I hope he will give you strength now as you nurture your Mom through her illness.

Take care,

Joyce
