|I wish you the best of luck with keeping your strength. My mom was the glue in our family, so when she passed everyone fell to pieces. My older brother and I were the only ones who didn't completely fall apart, and thus I had to help him keep everyone together... especially my dad. I didn't really get to grieve much during all that commotion, which is probably why I have been struggling with depression and anxiety problems.|
|Thanks to both of you so very much. Yes, mom is still with us. Her pain threshold has gotton a bit worse. She was on 10mg morphine with a liquid for in between times. She is now on 20mg of morphine every 12 hours instead of 10. I tell ya what, she is some fighter. I would have given up long ago and just prayed to be taken. Coming from a broken home she has always had to be strong dispite her inner and outter problems. I know, I have seen many pass with lung cancer that were never smokers or around second hand smoke. I think there were so many factories in the early days, you had no choice but to breath that in as you took the smelly fummed bus to work.
You both have my sympathy. And. I also know my road ahead is going to be rocky. But strong I will try and be. I have loved ones that need me still around. My three boys.
Love and Hugs,
|You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers I can't imagine what you must be going through right now...try to keep your head up and just know we're thinkin of you|
|And to you lonestarguy a warm Thank-you. My sypathies also go out to you. Yes, mom also refused any treatment at all.
And yes Rick, how well I know and my blessed and greatful. My three boys and ehealth are what keep me going. I can not lie about that. They have stood by me thhrough battles of death even with myself twice the last time beiing the closest. And that is when I found this board. Ya know, some will say I am to emotional. I have always been that way. It did not take me long to know that the friends I have here on the board are the ones that are going to be my shoulder always. There are no friends that I have ever had in real life that could even come close to my cyber friends here. And I genuinly mean that. YOU gang are my rock and do'nt forget it.
