    how kind
    how very kind of you to reply. I apologize for the post...in many ways i was letting off steam and i wonder if this is the place to it.....not likely but on the other hand you have to just sometimes trust your cancer buddies to understand.
    On another thread i talked about the day .....funeral for neighbour's brother......lung cancer...It must be a combination of seasonal expectations....all should be merry and bright combined with the reality of cancer.

    Don't apologize. If you cannot vent a little steam here, just where can you. My condolences on your loss.

    Oh Mags
    Oh Mags,

    Sooo young, such a loss. I will pray for your son-in-laws sister as she goes through so much in the months ahead. I'm sure her emotions will be all over the place with her young husband's death and yet the new life in her. Very, very sad and then a bit of joy. Wow.

    Prayers for all of you

    Aloha,
    Kathleen

    Sad

    Sounds liked they loved each other so much that they wanted their love to stay alive and found another way to conceive a child.  Sorry for your loss, but a blessing that a new one will soon arrive.

    I'm so sorry

    And of course this is the place for you to vent. I understand how you feel. My daughter's (my only child who has colon cancer, stage IV) childhood friend, diagnosed with stage III colon cancer after my daughter was diagnosed last year, just died a week ago. He was 38, with a wife and two small children. He was one of five 30-somethings from our rural area (population around 6,000) who have colon cancer diagnosed over the past year. My daughter and her husband even sat in the infusion room with this guy and his wife while they received chemo, and now this, at Christmas time. I imagine what you are feeling is similar to what my daughter is feeling. I'm so sorry for your family's loss but thankful the young man and his wife had the idea for in-vitro fertilization - what a Christmas blessing for all the families.

    Wishing you a peaceful Christmas and hoping the healing from these tragedies begins.

    Feel so sorry my dear Mags
    Sad story specially on these days of happiness ( theoretically)!
    Vent whatever you feel convenient that's the main reason for this forum!
    Have a big hug!
