My mom was diagnosed with multiple myeloma a little over two years ago. It shocked everyone even the doctors. Prior to the cancer came kidney failure and a failing heart. My mom braved through each of these better than anyone I know, even myself. I would have given up long ago if I were in her shoes, but her spirit was so strong, failure was not an option. She had been in the hospital numerous times, but each time she has come up, each time she has told me to be strong for myself, my father, and my brother. She never allowed me to worry about her. Even when she was in excruciating pain from the cance destroying her bones she would never let me know how much she hurt. At times I feel that I let my mother down. But she never let me know, but as I speak to people I find out that what she said to me was the truth. She was so proud of me and all that I had accomplished and everything that I will accomplish in life. My mom left me a week ago tomorrow. I still dont know how to handle it, what to do. Who am I supposed to gossip with? Talk about random tv shows and just random thoughts. She was more than my mom she was my friend, my nurse, my confidant, my inspiration, and i miss her more than I can ever let anyone know.
