RandyW Posted October 23, 2006 Share Posted October 23, 2006 On Jan 23 2006 I lost my best friend, My love and My Wife of nearly 10 years to a disease called lung Cancer. Married Feb 16th 1997 after a year long engagement and living together, we said those MAGIC Words. In sickness and health for richer or poorer. usually poorer, but still happy about it. and until March 2003 In health. Now after March 2003 it was in sickness. We never had a single fight about money. Never had enough to fight about. The bills were paid and the holidays were nice. Not extravagant but nice. In May of 1998 we loaded up a Uhaul and a Ford Ranger after selling both our vehicles and moved to North Carolina. OK Think about beverly hillbollies but in reverse. thought that would help. When we got here we bought a little house in the Burbs nnot far from my folks. they are still around thank god and knock on wood. Not Don Wood though, Okay? We managed theough all this stuff called life for a long time and were happy. On Jan 21 2006 Deb could not breathe she was gasping for air after dinner. Called the ambulance and went to ER. was admiited by Head of Oncolgy who is a friend of a friend coincidentally. she did ok for the weekend, and was to start possibly Alimta Avastin on the 24th Of Jan or possibly an emergency radiation treatment. at 2:55 Am after all vitals were checked and she had been given a breathing treatment and a Morphine shot. she got out of her bed and sat in her recliner and went to the Light. Now it is 9 months later!! I go to work every morning, Cook dinner for Daisy dawg and myself, Do the laundry, cut the grass and anything else I have to do. I did not crawl into a Bottle of Jim Beam every day or nite. I did not climb the tower in town and go nuts I am here thanks to everyone on this board and I thank you for all the support and energy and prayers and understanding you have given me so far. oh yeah, this is not a hall pass, so don't worry, I ain't goin nowhere!!!!!!!!!!!!
