I am about to become a widow

(1/2) > >>

Fuchsia:
Hello,
My name is Fuchsia.  I am caregiver to my most wonderful husband Rob...who is  dying of cancer.   

He has been fighting for nearly 3 years and has been considered terminal since last June.   I don't expect him to see the spring. He is so young - only 44.  He is my best friend, my love, the father of my child and he is slipping away day by day.  I am so lost.  This hurts so much.  But I keep going because I must. Even if I don't know how I am doing it. 

Can I be here? Even though I'm only almost a widow? 

Lost35:
Welcome.  Others have come here before and been welcome.  Hopefully they will answer your post.  I'm so sorry you are going through this...

-L.

I was a part of this community before my wife died. I think it really helped me realize I wasn't alone. My wife died of breast cancer at the age of 35. We have a 6 year old.
Feel free to message me (or post ) if you have questions.
Take care of yourself. You are not alone.

TooSoon:
My husband died of brain cancer.  I've been there.  You can message me, too.  Hang on! 

BrokenHeart2:
Cherish your last months, weeks days together. Hugs to you and your family.
