My Dad died of Liver Cancer after beating Bowel Cancer

by Louise

My Dad passed away on October 7th 2012. The pain and heartbreak I feel is the worst thing I have ever felt. My Dad was diagnosed with Liver Cancer exactly a year to the day after he had an op to remove a bowel tumor. We were told he had 6 to 12 months to live. He actually went on to fight and lived for another 3 and a half years. So although I am grateful for the extra time we had , nothing prepared me for what happened on the 7th October. If I fall asleep I like it because I cant think , but then I wake up and its the first thing I think about and then its all thats in my head through the day.My Dad was supposed to start chemo again , so I really thought we had another Christmas , I knew he was becoming weaker , but never knew it was so close. It helps me to read other peoples words who are going through similar or even talk to people. So thats my advice to anybody , keep talking. I dont have the answer as to how to get over this and I know I never will, I just hope it will get easier...I am so thankful that I was with my Dad when he passed away , I held his hand the whole morning.

May you live a blessing life

Sorry for your loss, I also lost my father n law last week on Oct. 23rd 2012, he had throat cancer, I've only knew him for four years now, he was a wonderful man to me, before my self coming into the picture, i've heard stories in how he out lived a few years that the doctors told him he had so much time to live. This time he became diagnosed with cancer and it came creeping faster than life itself. We did what was asked of him for us to do and that was let him pass in his own home. it hurt to know that i got to see him the night before and telling him goodbye for a good night and next thing you know it, the next morning he passed away. I know what your going through and it hurts, finding people that is going through the same thing helps a little bit better other than the ones that havent been through it. send my condolences to you and your family. may we all live in peace.
