I’ve been asked the past week if I had given up blogging. The answer is no. Hopefully, there will be things to blog about again, in the near future. The past three weeks have been a whirlwind of emotions that put the blog on the back burner. Some of you have experienced the same within recent months.
While at Gunter Hill campground, we received word that our neighbors wife, the wife of one of my best friends, had been diagnosed with intestinal cancer. The prognosis wasn’t good, and we returned home rather than continue to spend more time on the road.
Someone we talked with many times each week, drank coffee together, went out to eat most Friday nights. Just plain good friends and neighbors.
She goes for a doctors visit complaining of abdominal pain, six weeks ago. Diagnosed with inflamed diverticulosis.
Two weeks later a scope and surgery reveal cancer. That’s the week we were in Alabama. This past Thursday she died. The funeral was today. Six weeks!!
What do you say to her husband, her children, her grandchildren? The common phrase’s such as; “ you’re in our prayers, thinking about you, we’re here if you need us, etc.”, seem so empty.
I’m sure that time will begin to heal the ache in the heart of her husband of 47+ years, along with the children and grandchildren. But until then, what do you say, what can you do??
