  1. This is something that I've been thinking about a lot lately. I do, more than anything, want to have a sign from my dad and I think that over the last few days I might have been. I've been seeing the same (or I think it is the same) butterfly everyday since last week. The weird thing is that I was away last week, 2hours away to be exact when I first saw the butterfly. When I came back home I've seen it everyday. I asked my fiance if he has been seeing a lot of butterflies lately and he said no. It is strange but I want to believe it is a sign. I can't remember the last time I saw a butterfly before this.

  2. Please accept my sincere condolences. When my dad died I felt the same feelings you are feeling. I was sad but I was relieved he wasn't suffering anymore and that he is at peace.

    My prayers are with you and your family.

  3. Hi Deb,

    I think it is normal. I was also haunted with my dad's last hospital stay...him gasping for air and completely out of it. It has been 3 months since my dad died and I guess lately it is not as bad. I don't think about as much and when I do it doesn't bother me as much as it did. The first month was really bad. It is good to talk to someone about it, just share your feelings and let it out. It will get better with time...

    love,

  4. Hello everyone,

    I am still around but don't post much but I too, think about everyone each day. My prayers are with all of you.

    It is still hard to believe that my dad is gone. I think I'm in the denial phase. It has been 2 months. I think about him everyday and I can't get the thoughts of his last days out of my head. I go to the cemetary and I just can't believe his body is in there. It is going to be especially hard in October when I get married and when Christmas comes....I always thought my dad would always be alive.

    I hate cancer and what it does to people.

    Thanks Ann for posting this. It is nice to see how everyone is.

    love,

  5. Hi Julie,

    My dad also had radiation pneumonitis a year ago. He too, was on oxygen. It took quite a while for him to get better. Over the year his oxygen level kept improving. He only wore his oxygen when he was at home in the afternoon and when he went to sleep. When he went to work he didn't wear it. This routine started after a month back from the hospital. It is a scary thing at first but hang in there.

    love,
