Cancer: Lung Message Board


Cancer: Lung Board Index


Today, I feel up to posting a bit longer, so, I'll take on Cheryl's query.

Dana had to have an operation on her hip to find out if a large calcified mass she had there was an osteosarcoma or not. She was also at the time pregnant with out third child. That's what happens when you get a second wind, I suppose. Anyway, she had the surgery the first time and appeared to be recovering nicely, but her blood was very thick and she had a blood clot to the lungs.

They took her back to the hospital and tried to thin the blood out but they couldn't do it as much as they'd like to because of the pregnancy. She had another clot to her lungs a few days later. By then her system was very weak and she couldn't fight against it. Her heart gave out and she died.

The kids are handling it as best they can. Our son is concerned about me, for I was depressed for a bit after she passed on. Now, I've bounced back a bit, decided to fight. I miss her like crazy, I ache for want of holding her again, but my kids need me.

I haven't had any grief counselling, for my own discipline is the only counselling I need. I'm seeking some out for my son just to check.

I'll be praying for you and your brother. Let us know how it went.

Walter
