Re: My Dad is gone...
Thank you so much for the kind words & thoughts Ashlea, ljg, Darla, Barbara and Pam. I feel like this site is a bunch of old friends, that I have to periodically check in on, as your encouragment on this journey has been priceless. In a strange way, I also feel very distanced from cc right now.... as if it's a class that I"ve been attending daily & I"m burned out on it, I'm sick of studying, researching, reading, learning, breathing, living this stuff everyday. And I was only a caretaker! I never felt that before this week, because every little concern was worth burning the midnight oil over, if it could bring new answers. With Dad's death, I feel like the chapter on cc is closing & class is over. I don't have anymore questions about cc.... & the greatest challenge/fear of this whole process, Dad's death, has come to fruition. Perhaps this is a 'normal' response to the cancer and grief.
