The worst that could happen!

I said that I would be back tonight and this post will be the hardest one I have ever written!
6 weeks ago my ex-wife was told that she had level 5 liver cancer and that there was not anything that could be done to treat it. She was going to die!
After spending the past month in the hospital, she decided that she did not want to die in the hospital and she wanted to go home. So a week ago we took her home and her care was taken over by Hos pic.
Her and my son Gerry have lived together sense our divorce to share expenses. He got up Sunday morning and she had passed sometime during the night.
We knew that she was going to die, but it happened so fast! We though that we had more time. Even the Doctors didn't think it would be this soon.
Her funeral was last Friday!
My Son is the one I am really worried about! they were really close and it hit him hard! But he is taken it one day at a time! And that's all any of us can do!

  1. Tom, it's so great to have you back but at the same time that is really sad news. So difficult for your son, and you. Even after divorce you're still connected to that person through your kids. It's a blessing you can be there for him. And you are so right about taking it one day at a time. That's what life is all about.

    1. Leigh,
      I'm really glad to be back! I have lots to read to get back to square one!
      I was able to visit her in the hospital the day before she went home and we got stated on forming a new relationship, But we did know her time was so short!

  2. I'm sorry to hear about the sudden death of your ex, and I hope that you and your son can continue doing whatever it is that keeps you going, even if it is just one day at a time.

  3. I'm so sorry to hear about your ex-wife's death, Tom. I hope that you and Gerry continue to be there for each other.
