Sad_Widower Posted September 24, 2022 Report Share Posted September 24, 2022 Hello all. I hope you are e doing well. Unsure how to best phrase this question, but I am curious if you have any examples of a time where your heart was truly broken for your significant other…specifically in his or her final years? I thought about this as I was posting to a cancer forum specific to the type of leukemia my wife had. I don’t know, I just remember how my wife would read forums and soak up every bit of incifmeation she could, I figure with it being so rare I might be able to help someone sharing her experience. One thing I recall that really tore heart was: As part of my wife’s disease her spleen started to enlarge as it was taking on so much blood. My wife was very tiny (~105lbs) and was really proud of her slim/voluptuous figure. Unfortunately her spleen grew so large, people started asking if she was pregnant. I remember one day she came out and had a maternity shirt on. I think she was hoping I didn’t notice and honestly I ignored it, but it really broke my heart. I have many other examples but am curious about your experiences (if any). In a weird way it does not bother me to reminisce about it because I was very cognizant and gentle about the situation (it might be different if I made snide remark to her.). Ah, I miss her so much.
