michi Posted September 24, 2007 Report Share Posted September 24, 2007 My husband and I took care of my father in law for 8 months before he passed almost 2 weeks ago. We still feel like he is still with us in his room where he stayed. He had Ewing Sarcoma(cancer of spine) a direct result from being exposed to Agent Orange in Vietnam thirty some years ago. He just found out about it last year and had been through chemo and radiation. Had a bad reaction to these methods and he decided to just spend his time with us and our 2 boys until he passed. My boys, his grandkids were at school at the time he passed. My husband is an Angel and took care of his dad so well. He did things that I don't think I could do if and when my parents become very ill. I probably would now. My husband has his good and bad days and I too keep having flash backs of me feeding his dad towards the last 2 weeks when he could hold his spoon or fork, giving him his medicine and such. I feel too I lost a father. The kids are okay about his passing and are seeing a school counselor for a while to get them through this time. I just wanted to vent out a little and get some of my feelings out. Thank you Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
