Bless you, Susie, for your message on the Long-term illness page. I wasn't sure you were still visiting here. Some of those memories are just hard to push to the background and when the discussion turned to regrets for things said, that memory just jumped right out. It's the only time I remember getting angry with him through all of the trials we faced.
And I think you were absolutely right to listen to Hamada's wishes about dialysis. I know many people are able to handle dialysis treatments quite well, but it was just horrible for Vern. Perhaps the fact that MM is a blood cancer has an impact, I don't know.
So I think we both need to just accept that we did all we could for our men and yes, "they did so well" ... and so did we, my dear.
Hi Susie. I so enjoy seeing photos of you and Hamada here. I've enjoyed the chat room a few times, too. It takes a little to get used to it, but it's a nice way to get to know others better. It also offers a private chat between friends, which I'd love to do sometime. We'd just need to figure out the right time for both of us with that 8 hour time difference. Hugs to you.
Susie, Welcome, I'm so sorry to see your loss is very recent. Please do join the groups for your decade of birth and year of loss to make some friends. Generally, friends are folks that you can share images with -- and the photos here are quite special. You can converse with anyone in the discussion Forums, which are the heart of our Village.
Thanks for joining us and hope the peership provides you with comfort and information as your journey through grief continues.
