My mother was diagnosed with Ovarian Cancer in December of 2009 and she lost her battle on May 2, 2010. It was so fast and I am having such a hard time dealing with this. I want to blame everyone from my mother who didn't go to the Gynecologist for two years, even though we all knew something was wrong to the Doctors who kept giving her chemo treatments even though she was so weak. I am talking to a therapist and reading books but I don't know if it's enough. My mother was only 67. What hurts the most is that my mother and father knew in January that she only had a 25% chance of fighting the OV, but yet never shared this with me and my brother. We were told "She'll have the chemo and then the surgery and everything will be fine" and I believed that. I'm 40 years old and I believed what they were telling me. I guess that is why this is such a shock to me! My father keeps giving me her jewelry as he says "It's what she wanted". I had no closure with my mother because I wasn't at the hospital when she passed. I saw her on the morning of her death and all of her vitals were normal and then she went downhill and I was at home when I heard that she passed. My mother and I had argued alot and if I knew that she had limited time, I would have tried to mend our relationship, but I ran out of time and it's too late. I'm trying to be strong for my Dad and brother, but it is difficult at times. My Dad says that he's grieving too because this was his life partner and doesn't take my feelings into account. Does he not care that I am grieving too? This was my mother. I also have an 8 year old son who doesn't understand that his grandmother is gone. I tell him that he is in Heaven, but I don't think he clearly understands. I found age appropriate books to read to him, but he doesn't seem to understand. I need some advice because this is tearing me apart!
