Topic: It's been 7 months since I lost my Mom
7 months ago yesterday I lost my mom, who was also my best friend, confidante, adviser, my world. I just found this site but wish I would have found it a year ago. Maybe then I would have known what was coming.
My mom was first diagnosed June 2011 after months of them "knowing it was cancer but not able to find it". I think it was almost a relief to finally know what was going on so we could start fighting it. She went through some chemo treatments and we we under the impression that we were winning the fight. Unfortunately we were very wrong and she passed on January 9th.
If I had found this site sooner, I would have been so much better prepared and would not have believed the oncologist when he said that my mom could live for years with this cancer and die of old age. I would have spent those last months making sure she knew how very much I loved her and how very much she meant to me. I would have moved up my wedding date so that she could have been there for it walking me down the aisle where she should have been. Instead she wasn't able to be there in person but I know she was there.
I miss her so much. She was taken from this world much to early. There have been so many things she should have been there for in the short time she has been gone and so many more things that are yet to come. I still don't know what to do without her. There was no one that I turned to for advice more than her.
She is missed so much everyday...not just by myself but by everyone that loved her.
