I just wanted to put a post up today saying that I hope that I did not offend anyone with my last two postings. Everyone has a right to pick their own treatment plan and options dealing with this cancer and I was just speaking from my own point of view. Eddie was given pallative treatment only right from the beginning since he was stage four with mets to his liver/stomach/pelvis and probably brain. I believe that there are people who beat this horrible disease and I hope you are one of them.
I was only speaking from my heart and what I have gone through for the past three years since he was diagnosed on October 7, 2009. This is a day that I will never forget as it change all our lives. Ask questions, lots of questions, get the facts, make your doctors be upfront with you, know what you are getting into, that's all I really was trying to say.
As with anyone who has lost someone, life is never really the same, whether it's cancer or something else that takes their lives. We try to go on, for them, for ourselves, for our children, and we put one foot in front of the other everyday. Sometimes good/somedays not so good. Our lives change totally, from a financial point of view, to sometimes having to move, to living alone, it's all just a new life. We did not choose to become widows/widowers, we just became one and I, speaking from my heart, is lost without my Eddie. We shared 27 years together and I feel like I have lost my best friend.
If anyone ever needs any help, please contact me.
