I lost my beautiful,funny,mother of my two girls in dec of 2009. she was diagnosed with Aml in July of 09.My wife and the girls were visiting Lisa's parents in jersey,one morning i receive a call from my wife ,they were at the beach.lisa had been complaining of being tired all the time ,we both chalked it up to work and the girls and having our first home built.But that morning she couldn't walk off the beach ,no strength,hard to breath.her family got her to the ER ,thats where the diagnosis came in .That was a sunday,by wed morning Lisa was admitted to Moffit Cancer Institute in tampa.
She was so brave ,(Lisa was very smart also ,she knew everything that was happening to her and what was going to happen),so strong willed.She fought for her life every day .All the tests and needles and trials .her brother was a 100 % match for bone marrow transplant,the only set back was something callled a FLT-3 chomosone.I believe if she didn't have that mutation she would have made it..I cry every day,i miss her so much, I see our girls growing up without their Mom,lisa loved them so much,you see we didn't get started till late in life i was 40 lisa was 36.Those girls were her life.They are now 10 and 13.during those six months of treatment ,she only saw the girls ,maybe six or seven times ,it used to kill her ,but she didn't want them to remember her like that.The day she past,the doctors and nurses were destoyed,she left such a impression on them,on everyone she met.The doctors and nurses were in tears.
I am so angry she is gone,I haven't slept a full nite since she's gone ,keep checking on the girls throughout the night.i wish the girls still had their Mom .I used to beg god to please change places,take me and leave Lisa with the girls . i know i wouldn't have been as strong as her .
got to keep going on for our girls .honey you were the best friend ,wife and mother any one could ever wish for .
