It's been a long time

Saturday, June 30, 2012

Life sucks...that's about all I can say folks. Many things took my focus in the past few years and I won't go into depth with all of them except for when my wife became ill in early 2011 and her problems were diagnosed as resulting from one disease: Ovarian cancer.

It's been a long road and I gave up on everything and anything of interest to me to focus on her and her beating this disease.  It is a tough cancer as there is no test for the disease - no physical exam, no xrays...it presents itself as other problems such as intestinal or stomach problems  and isn't found till it's too late - about stage 3.  over 70% of the women diagnosed with it will die in less than 3 years.

My wife didn't make 18 months. She was diagnosed March 10, 2011 and I lost her on May 14, 2012.

33 and a half years of marriage - 36 years together, almost twice as long living with her as I lived with my parents.

All I can say is: take that one you hold dear and know that tomorrow is never a certainty.
