We are waiting for the angels to come take my daughter to a better place. My beautiful 29-year-old daughter was brought to hospice yesterday. The monster in her head is winning. She fought so bravely, never willing to believe for a moment that it would come to this. She endured surgery, egg harvesting, 9 months of Temador, 6 weeks of radiation, Avastin for the past 10 months along with Lomustine and Carboplatin. She was hospitalized last Friday to try to reduce the swelling, but it was a temporary fix. We were able to get her home on Christmas Eve, but only for a day. I have been with her every step of the way. I have always tried to fix everything, but I can't fix anything now. I can't imagine going home without her. I have been grieving for the past 4 years and I just want the pain to stop. I know that she doesn't want to leave, but I told her that the angels will take good care of her. I told her that she needs to go with them. I hope they come soon, Kim has suffered more than anyone should ever to have to, she did not deserve any of this. My life will never ever be the same without her.
Just last year we went to a 4-day yoga retreat and hiked to the top of Stratton Mountain in Vermont - she was the one that pushed me to keep going. Now she is unable to even open her eyes.
