Re: A Wife's Grief

Debby,

I am sorry to hear of this. My sympathies to you and your family. I lost my dad to CC in December 09 so I can relate to how you feel right now. I know that words can't help ease your pain, but please know that I am thinking of you.

My thoughts are with you and your family,

Re: A Wife's Grief

Dear Carol, 

your message really touched me.  We live in Montreal (speak French son my English may sound strange sometimes).  My husband was diagnosed with cc in November and the surgeon thought it was resecable.  On the operation day, They found out that it had spread and told us his life expectancy was for weeks, months at the best.  My husband (64) is hardly coming out of bed, not eating at all, and is starting to be confused and hallucinating.  The end is near.  Like you, everyone kept saying that we should cherish every moment.  This really got me mad, as there are no good moments seeing your loved one (married 35 years) really weakening a bit more every day and dealing with the drains, the loss of appetite, the medecine, etc.  you know !  So I agree with you, it is awful.

Dear Monique,

I am so sorry that you too are going through this.  No one should ever have to deal with this, but many of us have and know what you are feeling.  My husband was only 62.  We were married 41 years and together 45.   He passed away less than 2 months after his first symptoms.  I am glad you have found this site as there is a lot of support, comfort & love here.  Yes, it is awful, but we are all here for you. You are not alone.   Please keep coming back and let us know how things are going.   

With Love & Hugs,
Darla

Dear Monique,

I am sorry that you had to find us and so sorry to hear what you and your husband are going through right now. I went through this with my dad in December of last year and I know how hard it is, he was only 65.

As Darla says, there is so much support here from people who have been through what you are going through right now so please keep coming back.

My best wishes to you and your family,

Gavin
