hi all hope this message finds everyone as happy as can be. All of you figthing this beast keep strong I feel for you. Alyssa and i are getting into a routine which is good. Daycare started on the 4th of feb and that was pretty hard for Dad to drop her off. I busted my ass in my business for 10 years so when Shan and i had a child she wouldnt have to work and could stay home. guess that plan went out the window... she goes mon wed and fri and on tues thurs she has playschool and my mom picks her up form there and looks after her. we are gonna go to disneyland in march ( i have no choice) Alyssa won't let it go!!!! Oh well I am sure shann would have wanted us to go anyway.
I dont know how much I will post cause I am moving on in life i am too young to be sad forever even though this board is sooooo helpful it makes me sad reading stories and stuff. I had a long two year battle with colon cancer with Shann before this esophageal cancer started. I hope you all read lots of survivor stories but I really dont feel i can comment and help as it didnt work more than 3 months for me. All I can say is..
To my Beautiful Wife: No More Medicine No More Pain I Will Miss You Always & Forever Sweet Dreams..
take care all I will check in once in a while so remember to give hugs and kisses to all of your loved ones just bec ause you never know..... I wish i would of done it more.

You are exactly right in moving on. Life is too short to hold on to the pain forever. Our loved ones would not want us to do that either.
I hope you and Alyssa have a great time at Disney. Somehow I just know Shan WILL be there.
I wish you peace and much joy in your life. You deserve it.

Good luck Mike!! Stop by this site every now and then like I do. I only come every 2-3 weeks now but something keeps pulling me back here although I recognize fewer and fewer of the members which I guess is normal.
Have a great time at Disney and make memories for your daughter which she will never forget. Shan will be there in spirit watching over the two of you.

My heart goes out to you Mike. I know how much loosing a parent hurts, I can't even imagine loosing my spouse, and becoming a single parent.
If you need any help planning your Disneyland trip send me a private message. Disneyland is my hobby (more like obsession). We take the kids at least once a year, sometimes more. I can give you a lot of planning tips if you would like.
