My journal

Recommended Posts

During my husbands illness with lc I kept a journal of daily events.  When he went to heaven in Oct 2009 a made a few entries afterward and put it away.  Since then I sold our home and moved away.  I hadn't seen that journal in almost 7 years and came across it today.  It brought back an avalanche of emotions and it feels like his passing just happened yesterday.  Today is a bad day for me :(

I've known so many who have passed from this horrible disease.  Without exception they were late stage diagnosis, typical of lung cancer.  Moreover, like your experience, chemo was the only available therapy and it wasn't very effective.  I can say these things of the many I've known but none were tied by a bond of love.  To lose the love of one's life to lung cancer and watch the devastation unfold is unfathomable.  I cannot say I know how you feel.  I can try to imagine but that will fall far short. 

 

Yet, despite going through the mayhem of your loss, you return to minister to those who bear the burden of disease.  That is laudable, remarkable and speaks volumes of your heart and character.  Thank you for staying the course.

Michelle,

I walked beside you here on LCSC during that difficult time.  I'm sorry I didn't see this post sooner-  I was away at a conference during the week you posted this.  
I know you've had a lot of life changes since that journal- so it must have been a tidal wave of emotions.  Many hugs and much love from me and Rick.  Even though we are connected on FB daily, I'm sorry I didn't know about this and I wasn't there for you on this day.  You're never far from my thoughts.

I hope things are better for you this week.

((hugs))
