Tragic News

I don't have much time for this post, but just wanted to let my friends/readers know that my husband died. It was totally unexpected, and we're all still in shock, trying to deal with the funeral arrangements, etc.

Apparently, after the one chemo treatment on Monday (which he said didn't bother him in any way), he had a massive heart attack around 2:00 the next morning. All efforts to save him were unsuccessful and he passed away.

I went to my G.P. on Monday and she gave me medication to help with the situation, and I'm coping now. Otherwise I don't think I'd make it through all this.

I'm very busy, and only here at home for a very short time, since I'm staying with one of my sister's most of the time. The funeral is tomorrow at 1:00, viewing tonight, and he will be cremated -- which was his wishes. There will be LOTS of people attending, since he was well-known and active in the community. I'm hoping to hold up...but I'm sure once all the activity is over I'll have my own emotional pain to deal with.

More when I'm able to write/think at length. Thanks for all your prayers and good wishes.

I just got back to blogging after a week baby sitting my grandkids, but I’m so sorry to hear this.

As one who has suffered three kinds of cancer, I’m very aware of how fragile life is, but even that doesn’t make the pain of losing someone any easier to bear.

Take care of yourself.
