27 years married to my Craigy Baby...
(Campbelltown NSW Australia)
Christmas Day 2013- 3 months since Craig died. I am heart sore. I cry, rant, rage, cry, sob and nothing, not anything I do seems to help. After fighting so very long and in so much physical and emotional pain the cancer took its toll....not just on him but on our daughter and I....and then 2 days post funeral his mother died.
It has been a long, long journey to an end that I just can’t seem to grasp, let alone cope with. So alone...so lonely...so consumed by indecision...job gone...income gone...health shattered...emotionally scarred and just so very very tired.
Craig died from skin cancers He was treated with steroids for asthma and eczema since birth...unfortunately the long term effects were not known and regardless of regular and ongoing surgeries to remove skin cancers, attend to brain aneurysms, and brittle bones the cancer was deemed terminal in March this year. ...just when his mother suffered a stroke which took her to nursing care where she died from an aneurysm surrounding her aorta 8 days after Craig. Please know that general skin cancers (not melanomas) can be fatal...abet highly rare, they can become so aggressive that they continue to grow and erupt while under aggressive radiotherapy....now there is just our daughter who continues her university studies and I left....such a small family.
Just so sad.
