It's hard for me to be here again. I remember connecting with the first version of the board after I lost my first husband. Mostly I felt that I was in a safe place and could unload my worries. After falling in love again with WifeLess and now losing him, I'm not sure if this feels right. However, I had a burning urge to say this:

If my sweet husband could face the death sentence that hung over his head every day for 7 months, then I can do hard things.

I can sort out household problems, I can be alone, I can feel feelings that bring me to my knees.

I can go on until we meet again.

WifeLess - forever yours.

Ditto what Bunny and Maureen said.  Yes, you can do these hard things and you can hate doing them at the same time.  Love.

I am so so sorry Bluebird- his writings were so helpful to me when I was newly widowed. I remember meeting you both in CT- he looked at you with pure love and joy.   Sending you a hug, wishing you a gentle day.

Thank you for this thread Bluebird.  I am sorry that your second loss came too soon.  I am interested in your progress and hoping to see good things for your future.  I am in the process of joining your company as a two timer.  NG is losing her battle too quickly.  I am reliving events of 7+- years ago in many ways, same hospital, even some of the same nurses and Drs.  But things are also completely new.  NG is the greatest woman I ever knew.  Her courage right now is inspirational.  She knows that she will lose this battle but that does not equal giving up.  She is not going gently into that good night.  I am honored to know her and humbled to have received her love.

I am so sorry Bluebird. I haven't been on here lately and just saw this. You and Wifeless both were such a huge support to so many, myself included. My heart is breaking for you.

 

Wishing you space, breath, peace.

Bluebird - I haven't been on this site in about a year. I'm about the same vintage as you from the previous site. I remember you and Wifeless and cheered your getting together. I'm so very, very sorry to hear of his passing. I truly can't imagine your loss.
