      My wife's lung cancer started growing again and they found a second (new) tumor. They changed her chemo and mow she'll lose her hair. As promised to her, I shaved my head. I wish it was May!

Yet, when I snap back to reality, she's still dead, and it still hasn't sunk in yet.
        It's finally sinking in... had to restrain myself from crying at work today. Hopefully, getting some of her stuff out of the house will help...

              ****ty about the old and new cancer. Very cool that you shaved your head to support her.

                    Had some friends over a few nights ago to help clean up. Wound up donating a few bags of clothes and several boxes of her books to the Rescue Mission's thrift store, and that's helped somewhat. Same friends are coming over next week for more cleaning and we plan to get her bed out of here.

                    Also, with the Old Boys' half-marathon coming up Saturday, every step from start to finish is dedicated to Mom. Not only that, I always called her first thing after a race, so I'm going to call her again when I finish...

                      On my way home, I kept thinking this is some kind of joke, that when I get home, she'll be sitting up in bed and watching reruns of Law & Order, and I saw the hearse as I approached the driveway.

                      Bob,

                      I know what you're going through, as I lost my Mom last November to interstitial lung disease, just before Thanksgiving. It was especially hard, as my Mom went unexpectedly quickly. My wife and I had make plans to go back and be with her for Thanksgiving and we'd bought open-ended tickets to stay with her awhile. I spoke with her and my Stepdad the friday before Thanksgiving about holiday plans and all. We were arriving on Monday to be with them. Then we got a call late Friday night that she had unexpectedly gone downhill quickly and passed that night, just two days before we would have been there. Very tough weekend.

                      Other than my wife, my Mom was the person I was closest to in the whole world. I just spent ten days back in Minnesota, part of which was spent going through her things with my siblings. Even now, ten months after she passed, the emotions well up every so often and I'll start to cry. Oftentimes it's just little things I'll see that make me think of her. But, you know, that's ok. Sometimes we think we have to have our guard up and not show our emotions, but it's really ok to grieve, and everyone grieves in their own way and on their own timetable. I think when you lose someone that important to you, there's an empty spot in your life that never gets filled again, even though as time passes, the pain gradually fades. But, again, that's ok.

                      One thing I spent some time doing was going back through a file where I had kept letters from my Mom over the years. One was especially meaningful, as it was a letter my Mom had sent me when my grandfather had just passed away. To quote a bit of it:
                      "We are praying for you and love you. The Lord worked things out for your return to Minnesota for Grandpa Gray’s funeral. I have not known a grandfather who truly loved his grandchildren so. (I know Grandpa Cedar would have, if he had lived to know his). You have been blessed, and you will have precious memories, which will be with you for your lifetime. As your sorrow eases, your memories will become more precious."

                        It's ok for a grown man to cry, right?

                          Grateful post~ Lil ran his first Cross Country race ever (JV) and won. He has worked so hard and it was just the coolest thing to see him race. After all the stuff that has needed to be worked thru I am so grateful I could burst!

                          Bob, that post was beautiful and so true. In the past few yrs we have lost a few very close family members and everything you posted is what I am experiencing. That includes the crying part.
