Very Sad Day

[Post New]by anglegirlsandy on Apr 15, 18 1:10 PM
This morning we got some very sad news about my brother. He has had a growth in his throat for a while now. He didn't want to go have it checked, god only knows why. He finally got to where he couldn't eat. Everything would come right back up because it wasn't making it past the growth to his stomach. Then the same thing was happening when he would try to drink. He went to the emergency room and they sent him to Toledo hosipital and they ran a scope down his throat and took samples and it came back positive for cancer. At that time they said he was to weak to send home so they were gonna put a feeding tube in him. Well when they opened him up he was full of cancer. This morning the doctors told my sister the only thing they can do now is send him home with pain patches and try to keep him confortable. He just lost his wife about 3 months ago
too. I just lost my husband 2 years ago and now it's my brother. One good thing and this may sound funny or bad to some of my friends on here but I have been having a hard time concentrating on anything. This morning it was very icy out so I didn't go to church. It just came to my mind to play my game for a bit. So I sat down and started making the rounds. Ya know, my mind was just racing and I wasn't even really concentrating on the game but I guess I've just played so much that I just starting clicking on objects in the rooms. When I realized I thought oh my, this game is even theraputic.(not spelled right.) I have always loved this game and I do play it a lot expecially since I lost my husband. I just ask for your prayers and I hope this don't sound to bad of me. This is a wonderful forum and I thank you all for listening. God bless.

I agree. Definitely therapeutic as it keeps my mind off things that are troubling on a daily basis.

Have fun around the Castle while putting your mind at ease

Best wishes for healing

I'm so sorry about your loss find peace in knowing his family was their helping him to the end. My father died of throat cancer almost twenty years ago, it was very hard to watch him slowly dying and not being able to help. Sometimes I get so angry thinking about all the people suffering with cancer and instead of spending more money for cancer research the government continues giving so much of our money to other countries. I believe in the old saying take care of your family first, any leftovers help the others...

Very sad indeed Anglegirlsandy. I am so sorry you have to anticipate another big loss.
Do no feel bad about loosing yourself in MC, the “ automatic pilot” you are on and other repetitive activities have a soothing effect on the brain. Many here will tell you that it helps with their chronic pains.

So no guilt feelings and keep sharing your thoughts, you will always find a sympathetic ear in here.

P.S. Darlene giving ony leftovers is not true generosity

If it wasn't for another site that I played before this 1 with my youngest daughter
that she loved when she was wee I would have lost my sanity with grief 2 years ago
so I can relate to what you mean here angle I lost my beloved mother very suddenly on June of that year then I lost 1 of my best friends on Christmas night the same year who left a young family of 3 boys I also have an uncle who we all care for whos had a number of ops etc for cancer for 13 yrs now... the only solace I found was to go on auto pilot with games hugs
