Take care of yourself. I always felt grief is like labor, but lacking the joy which usually follows. I gave into it and cried whenever I felt those waves coming on. It is different for everyone, but that is what it felt like for me. My husband was hit head-on by another driver on his way home from teaching school. I often wonder if it would have been better if I could have said goodbye. I'm not sure. No matter how it happens, its intolerable, and I feel your grief deeply even though we have never met. Please don't feel you need to respond--these are busy days. Just know that we are here for whenever you need us. Draw your strength from all those who love you.
Just read your sad news on BootcampMoms. I am so very sorry....never an easy journey to get through. May you find that each day that passes, you are flooded with a few more memories of life with him that bring a smile to your face....lots of prayers for you and your family. So glad your children were with you to say goodbye.
I joined the N4M group just as you were learning your husband's diagnosis, through the drama of your son's quarantine and delay coming home, to Bud's long-awaited arrival to be with you and his dad, and now this sad news. My heart goes out to you and your family. And I am filled with gratitude for your modeling to this group what being a caring, loving wife, mom, and friend looks like, through challenging, life-changing situations. And all while you continued to provide the N4M group with your boundless, caring support. Thank you. Love and light to you all.
You may already have this from your DH's Doctors but I wanted to share. https://cscaz.org/ This is the link to a Cancer support group. There have support for the patient but also for their loved ones and care givers. You are not alone even when it may feel like it! Do not feel you have to manage the BC mom's page if you don't want to. You are free to make whatever choice is best for you and your family and just know you will have our full support the whole way! Praying for you all!
All my love and prayers are with you and your hubby and family. I know how much he means to you. God’s will not ours. Somedays it it so hard to understand what that purpose may be. I know it doesn’t make it any easier if fact may be even harder. You have a tribe here with you, praying for you and loving you and your family from a distance.
God be with you for strength, courage and healing.
