I lost my mom on Friday July 30th, 2010 to lung cancer. She was only 67 years old. She fought a short battle with both lung cancer and cervical cancer. She was diagnosed with stage 4 before we even knew she had it. They tried 1 chemo treatment and never fully recovered. She was a wonderful person and I will miss her dearly. It is still as though it isn't real It is like she is on a vacation and I expect her to walk through the door and say, 'I'm Back'. It happened so quickly that I just don't feel likeit is real.

I am so sorry to hear of your mother passing. I can relate, my mother died in June 2010 from metastatic breast cancer and I miss her so very much, I feel like the the pain in my heart will never leave. I understand when you say that it doesn't feel real. I sit there and all of a sudden I realize that my mom is realy dead and she is not coming back. When I have good news I still pick up the phone to call her. I am glad I looked at your post because I feel the same way.

After reading the above two stories, I wanted to let you know that I am feeling exactly the same, my wonderful caring mum passed away 30 July 2010 of Ovarian/Periteneal cancer. Mum went into hospital 26th June was diagnosed two and half weeks later and then passed away two and half weeks after that aged only 61. My sister and I sat with mum as she took her last breath, the pain I am in is really unbearable. I still think its a nightmare and I will wake up, or expect the hospital to call and say there has been a mistake. The thought of not having my mum to cuddle , talk to, just enjoy her company is devasting. I dont know how Im going to cope, we are a close family and my sister and Dad all feel the same, its a constant knife in the heart all the time. xxxx

I know exactly how you feel. My mom and I used to have saturday as our girls day. We would go shoppig and have lunch just the two of us every saturday. She Lived with me and my husband and i still can't bear to go in her room for long periods of time. I still catch myself picking up the phone to call her while i am at work to tell her something and then i remember she isn't here with us. I hope this emptiness in my heart starts to heal a little soon. I miss her more and more each day and wonder if I will ever understand why god took her soooo soon but I know that he felt it was her time to go with him and I know that she is with my dad now. I lost my father also to lung cancer almost 6 years ago. I also was with my mom when she took her last breath and was glad that I was able to say my good bye to her. My husband is really hurting as well. She used to tell him that he was her son not her son-in-law. He loved her just like she was his own mother. I am sorry for your loss as well. I will keep you in my prayers.

Thank you Tina. I am trying to think of all the positive sides like I have no regrets with my mum , my sister and myself always spoiled my mum, we never argued with her either we are a very close family, we never left mum alone in the hosptital when we found out how serious her condition was, but then the reality slaps you in the face and pierces your heart that mum has gone. Things will never be the same again. While being in the hosptital with mum I can honestly say that mum has gone onto a better place because while in the hospital I saw so much and knowing that my mums dad and sister came to collect her, my dads mum passed away 24 years ago and her sister passed away 6 years ago. You may think Im crazy but I honestly know that because my mum told us 6 days before she passed away that they were there, and then I think but mum has gone. Its this cycle that my brain is going through at the moment and I know its not going to get easier it will only get easier when I go home with her. My hubbie is suffering too as my parents call my hubbie their surrogate son. If I can help in any way please let me know. take care Kris xx

I lost my mother on Sunday, August 15th 2010 to Primary peritoneal/uterine cancer, she was only 54 years old. It hurts and I miss her so much, however, I am very much relieved that she is no longer in pain. She only lasted a month after her diagnosis and went through one round of chemo. The one thing is sure my friends, our mothers are no longer here on this earth but are always with us. I feel my mother's presence and spirit every day and I am proud to be called her daughter and carry out her legacy. My heart, thoughts and prayers are with you both.
