Grieving

Hi I’m Zen,

 

3 days ago I lost my husband from stage 4 colon cancer and it’s was metastasis. In June I had lumpectomy and had one month radiation treatment.

 

One after my husband was diagnosed with colon cancer, he had 9 months chemo and one 15 minute radiation treatment. Not looking forward to his final farewell next Fri.

 

Very hard, no words can explain the feeling of loosing someone. We were together for 16 years

Re: Grieving

Hey Zen. Im not sure what Im doing on here. I never use public forums for talk but I saw your post and felt I wanted to quickly say something. I hope your doing ok.  I just lost my younger brother to the exact same thing. Stage 4 colon cancer that spread to his liver. He was only 30. Our situations our different but the sadness I am feeling is a feeling I never knew existed and I know In some way how you may be feeling. If you wanna have a few little conversations it might help us both. If not all good and I hope your ok. Tom.
