Just got back from Florida, my mom just passed away. She's had Cancer and we never knew it till the last 2 weeks of her life. She was having really bad pains in her hips and went to the doctors and was told that she had bone spurs. She got so bad she couldn't eat or walk. She passed out 3 times in a week from being so weak. My sister and brother-in-law took her to the emergency room and thats when they ran test. She had a stroke while going for a test to be done. Found out it was Cancer they gave her 2 weeks to live and she lived 2 weeks. She passed away on June 29th 2011. I know she's not in pain anymore and she's happy where she is, but I miss her soooo much!

One never stops missing a parent after they're gone, but it's true that we can be grateful they are not suffering anymore. Cancer is a terrible thing. Remember the good things to share in the future with your children.

KimberAnne, So very sorry to hear about the loss of your mom. That really puts a void in your life when you lose a parent. Will the time come when cancer will be obliterated. I lost 2 friends this year to it, I work with a lady that has been battling it for 2 years, and another that just came home after she had multiple tumors removed. I pray for you and your family. God's peace to you. Chris

sorry hear your mom passed way. my died from oral cancer 4 yrs ago. cancer such a nasty thing to die from. its hard to watch someone dieing from illness. wish there could be something you could do for the pain there in but you can't. doctors only can do so much they can do for a person when things happen to just doesn't seem fair.torwards the end my dad ended with a feeding tube in his belly so he could eat.sorry for your loss.

except the memories of her in the hospital… She was in so much pain for so long and we didn't know it was Cancer. She declined so fast and I feel so guilty. The good memories help but when I think about what she went throw with no pain meds I cringe. I think thats the hardest part right now

Sorry for your loss. Yeah, I miss my mom too. She died sudenly while on a trip to Memphis with friends (of a heart attack no less). She is one of the reasons I became involved in heart disease prevention.

Good to hear from you again regardless of circumstances. Talking it out is part of the reason we are all here. We hold each other up when things are looking down. Knowing you are not alone is powerful medicine!

Yup, I sure do. Sometimes all you can do is laugh to keep from crying - but it sure does feel a lot better to laugh every time you can. I also know I can come here every time I feel alone!

Thank u so much Teresa… Can't seem to get used to not being able to call her on the phone and so many memories come crashing through my mind all day long. I have to go to my happy place a lot now, lol. I miss her sooo much though.

Dear KimberAnne,

You have my deepest sympathy for the loss of your mother. I recently lost my mom also, so I know how you feel. I'm here if you need someone to talk to.

Take care
