I can't believe my husband was just diagnosed at the end of April with Stage 4 liver cancer, and our battle had barely begun. Paul passed away early in the morning on June 13th. While I am so relieved he didn't have to suffer for long, I was definitely not prepared for this - I guess I never would have been, though. Just like when I was his caregiver, I'm feeling terribly lonely and empty. My family and friends have been incredibly supportive and loving, and I'm very grateful for that, but it doesn't change anything.
I am so, so sorry that all of you are having to deal with this terrible disease also. All I can say is to express your love to those you are caring for, and enjoy whatever quality time you can have with them. I wish no one else ever had to go through this kind of pain - both the cancer victim and their loved ones.
Everyone, please be sure to take care of yourselves, too. I'll check back in with you when I can.
