  Sad and happy news

Hey everyone. On August 19th my father passed away. Its been a tough week for us, we saw him decline from December when he was diagnosed with cancer, he had chemo for 3 months, and was getting better. He was gaining weight, and acting like his old self. then a month ago he slid off the bed and told my mom his left arm and leg were really heavy. Thinking his might have had a stroke she called the paramedics. They confirmed it wasnt a stroke, the next day they went to the oncologist and got an MRI, the cancer had spread to his brain. Last wednesday my mom called and said the hospice nurse said he had a week left at most. I left work and stayed with my mom, we called his other daughters who live in Texas, and brother in Florida. They all were able to get here on Friday and on Sunday, after everyone who meant something to him came by Saturday and Sunday, he died at 9:13pm while my mom, me, and my sisters were sitting right next to him. I'm so unbelievably sad.

The happy news is I am an aunt! On the day of his funeral, yesterday the 21st, at 11:48pm my sister in law gave birth to a beautiful baby girl named Hayden. She is 6 lbs 15 oz and 19" long. :)

Oh, man, Least. That's quite sad. I can't imagine what it'd be like to lose a parent. :/

Congratulations on the little one, though... :D

My condolences. Sorry to hear about your father.

I lost a cousin, my best buddy for computing and gaming, three years ago due to brain tumor. I know the feeling of losing someone close.

Hope all the best for the family. Same time, congrad on the baby. Whether you believe in reincarnation or not, life is a precious gift we need to treasure.

Sincere condolences Least. I really dont know what you must be going through right now.

Funny how life works isnt it? You lose someone close, and are immediately presented with a new someone close to cherish.

Take care

thanks so much everyone, I really appreciate your condolences. It shows that even on forums people start to care just a little about the people they chat with regularly. Its nice to see. :)

my niece is so good for my mom right now, her first grandchild. Whether you believe it or not, i think its good she was born on the day of my dads funeral, i think he wanted that day to be remembered as a good day, his grand daughters birthday not his funeral.

You hit the nail on the head Least - that wee girl will be everything to your mother right now and rightfully so, a very hard time for all made a little easier by a little bundle of joy.

It's funny how life turns out sometimes and all on here are thinking of you & yours. :)
