Oh, Lisa. I am so sorry. I had just sent you a PM today saying I was thinking about you and hoping you were okay.

I have no words. I just want to give you a cyber-hug.

I am just reading this thread on Jan 16th but had to write. We buried my father one year ago today , and he too had brain cancer. He dies Jan 12, 2009 after about 8 months of therapy. He was diagnosed one day prior to his 64th birthday and had his first surgery one day after his birthday. They removed the larger of two tumors and thought the other they could control with chemo and radiation. It was a 7 hour surgery and he came through really well, but ended up with complications (sort of stroke like side effect and then blood clots in his leg.) After about 6 weeks or so he was recovering pretty well and had a decent summer. My mom took him to my uncles farm almost daily. He pulled weeds, planted and harvested the best he could, always with her right there working too. He even used the rototiller. He started having weird episodes where he would just get up and move around crazy, they finally came to find out it was seizures caused by the growth of the frontal lobe tumor. The chemo and radiation did a great job at the first tumor site, but did not touch the smaller one and it just kept growing. They said it was very dense. We had a very good Thanksgiving at two different families so we were blessed. His second surgery was Dec 4th and he never made it home again. He went from the hospital to a rehab, too weak to go home with my mom, and back again. He had a serious seizure in the hospital (thought it was a stroke) , had a brain bleed and blood clots. He truly ended up dying of sepsis and going into organ failure.
He was a healthy, strong man all his life. He was my daddy and I loved him very much. All I know is the entire time he was sick I prayed and prayed for him and wanted him to get well, but knew it was God's will and not mine. I was very happy that he was never in much pain, only at the very end with the sepsis and they had him heavily medicated.
I will love him forever and miss him always. I am an only child and had a great bond with him. My DS is an only child too and also had a unique relationship with him.
My mother was devastated and basically takes it one day at a time, that is all anyone can do.
I hope God blesses you with a strong heart and it seems like you have wonderful memories to hold on to.
Thank you for your post, it has been very therapeutic for me to share with you. I hope you can find a small bit of comfort in knowing you are not alone in your sadness and grief.
Take care and God Bless !!
me , DH , DS , & Mario
