    Thank you. I feel like the rest of the world expects me to be fine. It hasn't even been three months. But I'm supposed to be stronger or something, and I don't understand why. I'm so sorry to hear your mom has terminal lung cancer. It is such an awful thing to go through with them. You, her, and your family are all in my thoughts. I never gave up hope in my dad. I thought somehow that day would never come.

        They did that to my dad... they should have started chemo immediately. He was diagnosed in April and it was end of may or june until he got chemo. I still say if they had started it earlier maybe he would still be alive. But who knows.. My best advice is to fight. If things aren't getting done, be assertive. That is your mother. To some doctors she is just another sad case. They tried to push hospice on my dad... tol...

          I'm so sorry for your loss. I lost my dad, and Thanksgiving just wasn't the same without him. There was a lot of crying and emptiness at our dinner table. You are in my thoughts.

            My father passed away 12 weeks ago from Pancreatic Cancer. I have occupied my time, but I am still affected more now than that first month. Sometimes I feel like I can't breathe and that everything is falling in around me. I don't even care about what happens sometimes. Has anyone gone to counseling after losing a loved one to cancer? I'm thinking about going because I don't want to be so unhappy, but I am. It is aff...

              Never never give up. Even if they stop all treatment, keep fighting.

                Wow, I can't imagine what the last year has been like. I know I too will experience it, but I can't imagine an entire year without my dad. I've seen him close to every single day since the day I was born. It's so strange to not have him there. I want to hear his voice... his stories, and tell him things. Every day I think of something I want to tell him and am reminded that he is gone. I hope so much that one day I s...

                  Me too. I lost my dad last month. I'm so sorry for your loss. I have painful memories ever since February 15. I remember my dad turned yellow... then he was in the hospital and oh he hated that so bad. He was in the hospital so much. I just remember getting that news. It took them until april to find out what it was. I knew pancreatic cancer was an possibility. But to hear it, my heart broke. I went with him to his c...

                    Does anyone dream about the loved ones they have lost? I dream about my dad pretty often. I lost him on Sept. 1, 2011. The other night I dreamed that we were sitting at the kitchen table, eating breakfast. The sunshine was shining in on us from the window, and he turned and talked to me about something he was reading in the paper. It felt so good to dream of him. Life has been so hard ever since I lost him, and in my...

                      What a strange feeling that must be. I know the day they delivered my dad's ashes was such a strange day. It made the whole situation very real to me. That sounds like a beautiful stone. Actually, my dad loved to fish. It kind of reminds me of something he would like.
