When Someone You Love...

Is dying, everything in your world looks different, feels different and your chest, your heart literally hurts and you sit, open mouthed, tears streaming down your face, utter disbelief washing through your whole being even though you knew you would hear the word "Cancer" when you answered the phone.

My husband's dear, sweet, wonderful father, whom I love more than words can begin to tell you, has cancer. Cancer that is spreading already. There's nothing they can do. We don't know when his time will come but the doctor doesn't give him long and I pray he's right only because I cannot imagine the suffering he will endure with the cancer continuing to spread throughout his body if he lives for any great length of time. He doesn't deserve to suffer like that. He has suffered and been through enough as it is.

I feel as though my heart has been ripped out, my chest hurts so much. It's awful. So very awful.

Oh, Jo, I'm so very sorry for you, your husband and his family. My husband's dad died of cancer and it was a 10 month battle that I so wish could have been shorter for his sake. How blessed you have been to have a father-in-law you love so much.
