This might be a rough time for many of you. Do what you feel you need to do to get through it. Remember, someone is here almost all the time to talk to you.

My husband of 60 years passed away last May 23 and I still miss him terribly. He was sick for several years with COPD, along with some other things. I am glad he is not suffering any longer but I still miss him so much. This Tuesday was his 79th birthday and I went to the cemetery and put one red rose in his vase, along with the blue flowers I had taken earlier. I talked to him for a little while, cried a little while and then left. I know he did not hear me but it was good to say the things I said. I am so lonely I can't stand it. I don't want to die but I can't stand to live. I can't do the things I used to do because of my advancing age and disability. I never dreamed it would be so hard to carry on.

Three more days before the big party! My daughter and her entire family is here from Charlotte, NC to help me with the final plans and of course to boogie to the "oldies but goodies" of the best generation ever -- HIPPIES!!!!!!!!!! I will keep all of you posted and maybe some pictures or two. Have a great day.

Hugs,
Brigitte

I hear you and I understand.The thing about it is,that Colon cancer is SOOO preventable with early detection.I understand about having done what you've wanted to do.Just go out in style!You saw first hand what cancer can do!I certainly don't have much reason to be here either,been there ,done that!My doctor was preaching to me about my smoking,I pretty much told him the same thing!I'm smoking "natural"cigarettes!!Come from real tobacco!!

O.K.you guys!This is the nurse in me,Screening for cancer and treating it are 2 different things!A routine colonoscopy will detect any abnormalities and if there are polyps they can be removed before they turn cancerous.So please consider taking care of yourself!Colon cancer is so easy to prevent!!We are not talking about treating if it is cancer,just preventing it!!

Yvonne, thank you for sharing that poem. It made me cry, it was so touching.

Tom, I feel exactly the way you do. If it is in God's plan to give me cancer or any other serious illness that gives me no hope, I WILL NOT take any treatments to prolong my life. I have seen the suffering those extra months did to my Bo. It was not pretty and he suffered through out the extra time. I would tell the doctors to just make me comfortable and as pain free as they possible can and just let me go.

Yvonne,Thank you!I needed that,after saying I was tired of being sad,last week this weekend came along and knocked me over.Still tired of being sad,but hubby loved his jelly beans and wouldn't let me not buy candy when I suggested that.Said "think about the kids!"Well of course the kids didn't eat it,he did!!Also his b-day is April 25th.I've been dwelling on that and making myself miserable.Got to shake it off!!!Take care,and thanks again.
