Should I sue my doctor

Hi Gang,

It's been awhile, but looking for opinions. Should I sue my husband's doctor ? There was an obvious mistake. I'm out of the widow fog now and can handle the conversation.  My lawyer saids the hosptial will drag my husbands name through the mud. Imply he was a alcholic or smoker or had stress issues, (aka acid reflux). What a mean hospital.

Loss of my husband, my best friend

My husband, Rick was diagnosed on November 25 or 26 of 2014. He had throat cancer due to smoking according to doctors. He was sent to treatment and had issues with the center. Then in February 14th of 2015, on our anniversary, he had to be hospitalized. He was having difficulty swallowing and breathing. They did an emergency tracheostomy the next day and then on Wednesday, the 18th, he had his lower set of teeth removed and a PEG tube inserted. He was not happy. He fought and fought hard. He had many complications that nobody would address.

Grieving and scared

Hi. This is my first time to post. I'm 58 years old, and my 57 year old husband passed away Nov. 30 after fighting cholangiocarcinoma for 18 months. I thought I was doing ok; I think I did a lot of grieving during those 18 months, as it became clear that E was not going to get better. But today I'm a mess, can't stop crying and afraid. Though I work, it's not for the salary, but the health insurance.  My husband always managed the bills, insurance and taxes, bc he liked to and I hated it.

Holidays

With the holiday season upon us, how do you deal with the lost of your loved one and one that has been a part of your life for 55 years?  I just lost my husband 4 months ago to this horrible beast called cancer and I do realize that the first holiday is the hardest they say.  My youngest son and his family want me to come to their home for Thanksgiving but I just don't feel like I can and enjoy the season without my husband but then again I don't want to be alone.

How do those that have been thru this already handle it?

Everything seems so overwhelming

I lost my husband of 24 years on the 23rd of October, 2015.  He had colon cancer with mets to the liver.  All the time frames we were given were wrong.  They originally told us he would have around 3 -4 years.  He had eighteen months.  Even when he went into palliative care, they gave him three months.  He lasted barely six weeks.  At the end, he was given way to much hydro-morphine and he died of respiratory depression.  That will haunt me forever.   He had been so afraid of dying a painful death, and that is exactly what he got.

Mother's trip?

My mother just lost my father to cancer Last week.  This was very unexpected and he passed within two weeks of leaning he even had cancer. they had a long trip planned to go over seas. Her friends are telling her to take the trip with them. She is asking me what I think. I have no idea what to tell her. Has anyone had to deal with something like this?  Thank you.

I Will Love You Forever My Friend...And Will Never Forget

 

I love  you Josh and miss you so very much.

 

 

 

Our love is an old love baby
It's older than all our years
I have seen in strange young eyes
Familiar tears
We're old souls in a new life baby
They gave us a new life to live and learn
Some time to touch old friends
And still return

So Lonely

My husband passed away two weeks ago from lung cancer which spread throughout his body.  He was the best part of me and I just don't know how to go on without him.  I am Catholic and believe he is in a better place but lately am having these doubts.  Will I ever be with him again?  Does he miss his family?  Will my heart ever stop hurting and the tears stop flowing?

my mom passed away aug 4th. im lost without her

i lost my mom on Aug 4th 2015 at 2:19 pm. we all knew it was the end of the road for this earthly place. she had cancer all over pretty much. i am so lost without her. it feels like i am on an emotional roller coaster. some days i am ok, and some days i just want to lay in bed and not talk to anyone. i know she is in a better place and i know that she is saving a place for me some day. it does make it a little easier to swallow but it still stings. It seems like no one understands what we are going through.
