Guest jodycalabro Posted October 17, 2005 Share Posted October 17, 2005 I spent two years caring for my mom and she lost her battle April 13, 2005. I am still having so many problems coping with grief. She fought long and hard and I know that she is finally at rest in the arms of the Lord. I attended a grief workshop through hospice and was doing okay, but the grief comes back and takes hold so easily. I have not regrets just a profound sense of loss. Is this a normal reaction? I found this site just a few days before my mother passed away and wish I had found it sooner. Mom had stage IV adenocarcinoma and wasa treated with cisplaitin and navelbine, then taxotere, radiation, 2 other chemo drugs and Iressa before the complications began and after 3 hospital stays and 3 bouts with fluid and drainage of the lungs, she ended treatment in October last year and rallied quite well from the first week in December until just 3 days before she died. She had been on oxygen since November. Please let me know if you have experienced this as well. Also, I would like to do something to raise some money during LC awareness month. Any suggestions? Thanks so much. jody calabro Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
