My husband passed away a month ago from complications related to treatment from acute myeloud leukemia. We had been married for just over 20 years but had been together for almost 25 years. His death was a bit of a shock because his cancer was in remission and he had been doing good up until a couple months before he died.

Alexis I am so sorry for your loss, I thought I was a young widow until I read your profile. There seems to be quite a few passings related to unforeseen complications. It makes me very upset and scared for other people. My husbands infection would not respond to antibiotics, who even knew that this was a possibility in this day and age? And your husband being in remission and doing well prior must have left you speechless. I am having a hard time getting through a day, I decided to just strive for an hour at a time. Our daughter is 14 and she is just...angry, all the time. She thinks I should have stopped crying by now. I hope your daughter since she is a bit older is offering you the support you need. God bless and be well.

It has been like this every Saturday since June, since the nurse at the care home called me to notify me that I could pick up my mother's effects. My mother died in April.
I am overwhelmed.
I am crushed.
I love you, Mom. I…"
"Sixteen weeks ago today, my mother died.
For some reason, I do not feel crushed today.
But every Friday is going to be like this, a reminder that she is dead. Not quite the kick in the stomach reminder that she is dead that I feel when I wake up…"
