whitestick update
I'm sorry to relate that my beautiful DW left me on this earth,and has moved on to a better reward. I do have this huge hole in my heart, but am glad that she won't have any more suffering. The last couple of weeks of her time here, were not happy for her, as she had great difficulty catching her breath, and keeping any food down. The devastating cancer that she had, was not easily helped by the doctors and even the specialists were not able to determine from the scans and markers that she had as large and type of tumor that ultimately choked her life from her body.
I'm so fortunate because of her tremendous influence on so many lives, that they are providing me a support system. I will eventually be able to talk about her passing without breaking down, but it will be a long process. I am determined to celebrate her life by attempting to carry on her style and impact on people, but the bar is very high.
Thanks all to the long time supporters here who have helped me in the past. Please support Mesothelioma Advanced Research Foundation in their drive to find a cure and thanks.

I am so sorry to hear of your loss. I know no words can console you at this time, but my thoughts are with you.

Texas Proud 07-29-2010 12:44 PM

So sorry for the loss... how long were you two together? Any kids or grandkids to help?

I have a sister and a friend both lose SOs a few months apart... one of the things that I found out from them is to get the support you need, in whatever form... my sister was in a support group at church... and still goes two years later... she is now doing it to help others...

bbbamI 07-29-2010 12:55 PM

I am so sorry...

I wish I could give you a big, warm, Texas hug.
