I lost my husband two months ago to esophogeal cancer, an ugly disease he battled for 10 months. He was 41, a wonderful husband, and even better Daddy. We have three beautiful girls ages 12, 10 and 6. I think about him every second of every day -- my heart is broken. We were so perfect together and had things right where we could step back and say, "This is what we worked so hard for, our lives are perfect . . . it's time to enjoy!" We were together for 20 years, married for 15. I am so sad for him, for what he was cheated, for what he will miss.
I would like to hear from some other caregiveres who have lost their spouse, their childrens' father/mother, people who like me who are struggling (or have struggled) to find the stregnth to continue to be some resemblence of who you were before the cancer.
