When someone you know & love gets told they have cancer, you hope with all the drugs out there that your family member will over come this horrible thing.
My Mother in law was told just over 2 & a half years ago that she had cancer, the Doctors were saying how lucky she was, for it was so small. It was in her bone marrow & with drugs it will be managed.
Well she was the most active & loving mother in law, Granny you could wish for. Not many husbands would say that but I can, & very easy to because its the truth.
We were so alike it was uncanny, many years difference but I was born a day before her birthday it used to do my wife's head in with all the identical ways we had.
Those drugs that she had to take took they toll on her from very much the start of the treatment. Never been ill in her life & fit as a fiddle, many many more years left in her & I always said she would out live me.
Well she didn't like taking all those drugs but what do you do, then she got the post code lottery drugs & she just when down hill from there. Within 3 months the damage had been done.
It wasn't the Cancer that got her in the end but the Drugs that she had to take, that what was supposed to be controlling the cancer.
My wife is coping well, she has good & bad days as you can imagine it will take its time. Father in law, I think its just hitting him now that the Christmas period is over & back to the old routine of shopping with out his soul mate with him.
There is never a good time for something as horrible as losing a love one, but at Christmas it makes it 10 x as bad.
There's not a lot more I can say. Life is so unjust you don't know whats around the next corner.
Rest in piece E.
You will never be forgotten.
