Can not believe I’m here again

Postby Staystrong » Fri Jul 06, 2018 7:23 pm

Hello all. I hope everyone is doing aswell as possible.
My wonderful mother passed away after a 5 yr battle with pc in feb this year.
In complete shock today as my dad was diagnosed with this cruel disease. Just can not believe it. We haven’t all the details yet but it doesn’t look like he is a candidate for surgery like she was. He also is much older than she was at diagnosis ( 83 - 68) and has other health problems.
I’m sitting here with him in the hospital while he sleeps and really am just numb

So sorry you’re back here for a second time. It’s a worry that plagues me all the time that I’ll be back here about another loved one, so I’m gutted for you that it’s your reality. Don’t know what to say, but know that people out there are thinking of you and try to carry on as best you can. You’ve been through it all once though so you know what it’s like already, so feel like I’m preaching to the converted.
Big hugs

Dear 'Staystrong',

I am so sorry to read your post and understand that this must be so incredibly difficult for you at present. I am sure you are still dealing with your loss of Mum and to have this news must feel so unjust. This must be such a test of your own inner strength and resolve and I cannot imagine how you may be coping with this.

I am pleased you felt able to come back to this wonderful forum family where I am sure you will have much support and understanding.

Staystrong, please do feel free to be in touch with us on the support service if we can support you or give you any guidance during this difficult time.

Our thoughts are with you during these difficult days.
