Oh dragonboy! I feel so very badly for you. I can imagine you are really hurting right now and I believe your family are trying to protect you from further pain. You have our support and prayers here. I am glad you feel comfortable enough to share all this pain in your life with us. You take care of yourself, young man. hug.gif

Dragonboy,
Thank you for letting me know what is going on. My Mom died from lung cancer. She went through the quitting of smoking and 5 years later died. I used to smoke and it is really a hard thing to give up. I didn't know patients could smoke in the hospital. With your Grandmother, may be they don't know what happened for sure. That is what happened with my brother.
What are you doing to keep yourself busy? I agree with Rose, take good, good care of yourself during this stressful time. Feel free to email me at anytime.
I will be praying for all of you.

Hey Adam. Thanks so much for the update. I am so sorry to hear of your great-grandmother's death and the worsening of your grandfather. When my aunt died this fall of cancer, the waiting was the hardest thing. They also decided not to do surgery on her near the end, either. I know you are in a lot of pain, and I know that you cannot understand why these things are happening. Just cling to Jesus, and He will help you through this. We are all here too if you need us. Are there people around you that you can talk to about what has been happening? That might be good. Like the others said, take good care of yourself, and know that we are praying for you and your whole family at this time.

Adam, dealing with extreme illness and/or death of a loved one is probably the toughest thing we have to deal with in life. I know the feelings of helplessness, bewilderment, grief and even anger that can be so overwhelming. There's never an easy way to deal with it or a "shortcut" to getting over it. But sharing your feelings helps. Celtic Radio is your "other family" and we are here for you. Anything you want to share with us, ask us about, or just vent about, we're here for you. Rmember that love (love of God, love of family and love of friends) is the one thing in this life that lasts; it even lasts beyond this life. Let us know how you're doing and how everything else is progressing. Just remember that you are a very important person to your family at home and your family here. And we will remember you and your family in our thoughts and prayers.

Bill

Hey there DB. Sorry I couldn't have found you in better times. I sometimes think that I have had more than my share of loss, and no matter who, what or why it never gets easier. All the advise given above is excellent. Most importnt is to let it out in some way, and remeber that God has a purpose. Sometimes pain is there to teach us or prepare us for all the things that life has to throw at us.
I wish you and your family peace, and I will be praying for you all.

Dragonboy,
I'm so sorry for all that you're going through right now. My thoughts and prayers are also with you and your family. So many of us have been in situations very much like yours, and we understand. Don't give up hope, and remember that we're all here for you.

Dragonboy......just read all of the posts since I was last on. I am so sorry about your great grandmother's passing. I know how upsetting it is that your grandfather is still smoking in his condition, but I understand that it is very difficult for a lifetime smoker to quit. He is not trying to hurt you.....I am sure that he wishes he could quit...and he loves you very much. Grandchildren are so special to their grandparents, just as special as your grandfather is to you.

You and your family continue to be in my prayers.

The thing was...my great grandmother got divorced at a young age I believe. For 22 years she was living with her best friend named Ray intill her death. As soon as we walked in the funeral...everyone hung back not really sure what to do. Ray walked as fast as he could to the casket...held her hand, and burst into tears. I have never seen anything like this. 22 Years and to loose someone so precious!

My grandfather looked better when I saw him than when he was first diagnosed and started his Kemo. He's decided to try an experimental drug. I pray to god this works!

Hang in there. Time will heal the wounds and this period of your life will be a memory.

I am continuing with my prayers and meditations for your grandfather and family.

I'm so sorry to hear about your great-Grandmother's passing. I'm equally sorry to just now be reading this.

It's good to hear that your Grandfather is looking better. I wish him the best of reults with the experimental drug.

Clearly this is a very difficult time for you and your family. You needn't apologize to us for your absence, we more than understand the reason. Family always comes first.

We are here when you need us; don't forget to take care of yourself.
