Topic: My Grandmother/A sad update

Last time I was on here was in July.  On August 13 the doctors told us there was no more they could do for her.  She wanted desparately to make it.  Even after being told there was no more they could do.  They told us on that fateful August day that it would be less than a month.  Hospice came and set up at my mother's home and we watched her disappear before our very eyes.  I will never be the same. I will never forget her.  She lost her battle two weeks ago on September 11, 2013.  I miss her more and more every day.  Thank you all for your prayers and your support.  If it wasn't for cholangiocarcinoma, she would still be here, so full of life.  Cholangiocarcinoma has robbed us of so much.

I pray for all of you, every day.

God bless you.

Elsy,

I'm so sorry to hear about your grandmother.  From what you've posted, it sounds like she was a fighter.  Unfortunately, this horrible disease wins a lot of the time and for that I am truly sorry.

Please know that you are in my prayers.  I hope, in time, the beautiful memories of your grandmother will bring a smile to your face.

Take care,
Mary

Re: My Grandmother/A sad update

Thank you all for your kind words.  Her memorial was last Saturday.  It all seems surreal.  I miss her more with each passing day, she wanted to beat it, I had faith and hope that she would.  But at the end, it was just too big of a fight.  Thank you and God bless all of you.
