Pancreas CancerKeep your chin up was posted 07/31/2007 02:41 pm by Roberto
As I read your post I must say there is a samll amount of liquid seeping from
my eyes as I can commiserate with you on how you are feeling. Having gone
through this I can only say in my case it was my wife, who left me in April,
but for the weeks preceding her going to heaven, I for the first time
realized how much I loved her. Most important was the fact that she was very
independent. Because of my work we were seperated often and she was able to
do tons of things without me, but when the bad news was recieved regarding
the fact that she had Pancreatic cancere near I immediately retired and spent
100% of my time with her.(8 months) I was the cook, the house keeper, I
bathed her, assisted her when she had to go to the toilet, and even laughed
with her when she begin doing strange things because of the liver/amonia
problem. In short, she became totally reliant on me for everything, and as
you have said the weight loss depressed me the most even with her swelling
stomach. So we went one day to the store and i bought her maternity clothes
but she was not able to walk so she got into one of those automated carts and
proceeded to run into a rack of clothes. Since she was on pain medication I
kidded her and everybody in the family that she was the first case of DWI in
the Target store on a handicapped cart.
Shed those tears, it cannot be stopped but try to do it as I did not in front
of her, with her try to do everything you can to simply ensure you care as
this is all you can do.
