I have a broken heart and shattered soul after mom left me after passing away from stage 4 stomach cancer. She fought it to the very end. I love her and I miss her so much.
She experienced significant weight loss, loss of appetite, nausea and vomiting. A biopsy was done and my love was diagnosed with stage 4 signet cell adenocarcinoma of the stomach. I cried and cried, nothing in the world mattered to me anymore. I just wanted my mommy to be well.
She suffered so much she was not eating or drinking. Her health just deteriorated. She did the chemotherapy and gastrectomy. The cancer came back so aggressive and took my love away from me. I never got a chance to say goodbye - we were both so hopeful that my mom was going to survive.
I miss you mom, I wish I can go back in time and hug you so tight like I used to and tell you how much I love you. I’m very sad and I cry everyday remembering your smiles while you were in the hospital bed and me sitting next to you holding and kissing your hand begging you to eat. You are my angel mom you are always in my heart, you are my soul. Broken Heart
Big hugs to you and thank you for taking the time to share your very personal experience with all of us. I’m sure your mom would be very proud of you for sharing her story. It brings back so many memories for me, as I am sure it does for others too. Coping with a loved one with stage 4 disease is not easy and I am sure this was the case for you too. Now you have memories to cherish and I am sure you will reflect on these in the years to come.
For me, it was difficult in the early days after my father’s death as all I remembered, at that time, was the horrendous suffering that he had to endure. However, in time these memories were replaced by the happy memories and special moments we shared as I grew up. I will be ever grateful to my father, and mother too (I keep telling her this too!), for the wonderful upbringing I had as a child and how this has influenced my life. I’m sure you will have these wonderful memories too. Take care. Peter
