Re: My Wife Kathy

Dear Terry

I had left the forum for some time and probably will again. Don't know if you will come here to read again but just to say i was really upset to read that kathy passed away. I don't have a partner so cannot understand the void you must now be living with. I have lost family members and remember the horrible pain and disbelief when my dad died. Sorry i can't offer anything to make you feel better - this hideous disease robs so many of us of so much. As someone else has said earlier - you were a wonderful partner to kathy and i am sure she was very grateful to have you by her side

So sorry for your loss terry

Take care

Re: My Wife Kathy

Dear Terry, I am so sorry I am so late coming to this and reading your sadest of news. You have been such an amazing husband and partner to Kathy, my heart goes out to you as you adjust to the changes in your life, but I bet Kathy is looking down and smiling still.

Re: My Wife Kathy

Dear Terry and Family

Im so sorry to hear this news, Ive been coming on here still to check on information about Kathy - her beautiful photo touched me and her rollercoaster ride was around the time my mum started having probs of her own.

I cant say anything to ease the pain but I can understand what you mean - we knew my mum was terminal but when the time came 3 months ago I realised then theres nothing really you can do to prepare yourself for it- it just hurts so much. Def take things one moment at a time thats the only way I can get through it all at the minute.

Thinking of you and your daughters,
love to you all at this sad time Vicky xx

Re: My Wife Kathy

Thank you ladies. Some feedback that may be of use.

Kathy was diagnosed three years before her death. During this period we ( MY DAUGHTERS 16& 18 ) plus myself thought we had sort of got used to the idea that this was terminal.

As the actual end was so quick after many, many months of roller coasting emotions with different symptoms and physcal probems, even though I was holding her at the actual end, I cannot believe the actual physical pain of her passing, I never throught it was possible to feel this much pain, I feel I could write a book on just the emotions, but better left to someone else.
Although Kathy never wanted to come on this forum herself, I did report daily what was going on.

Thank you ladies for sharing, especially those who have already passed away.

Love to you all.

Terry,

I'm so sorry to read your sad news.

As I read of it I have a huge lump in my throat and eyes full of tears. The scene you describe is the same as when I lost my Mum to the same disease 15 years ago. It always seems so sad.

But I'm not going to let it get me too.......

I am so sorry to hear the news about Kathy, please accept my condolsences and I wish you and your family all the strength you need to get through what must be a very difficult time.

I only come on to the forum occasionally now as I was lucky enough to get the all clear - and the reason I do still visit is to check on people who I got to know or whose stories I followed. Kathy´s was one of those as I was always so impressed by the strength, committment and love you let us all see in your posts......

Take good care

Re: My Wife Kathy

Terry

So sorry to hear that Kathy has passed away but glad to hear it was so peaceful. Thank you for letting us know, I was wondering how she was doing.

It's so unusual to have a husband posting on this site, and although none of us are lucky having to live with breast cancer, but at least Kathy was lucky in having a husband who had the courage to join this forum and to find out more about this disease, I know my husband couldn't do it.

My sincere condolences

Linda
