Your loss is to big to wrap in a hug and take away. Your life has for ever changed. Although its diffcult to see beyond the sorrow,May looking back in memory help comfort you tomorrow. Grief is the reminder that we loved and were loved. 

When my sister was dying she told me if I cried when she dies then those tears are not for her but rather me being selfish and wanting something no matter how hard I try i can never get back. She begged me not to cry . She said that she wont be able to see my tears so dont waste them. She also said don't you spend one day thinking about what could have been or could I have done something more to help her. She said that I was the best sister she could have ever asked for and that she knew how much I loved her..

Im sure that your DAD would feel the same as my sister felt. He made you promises and you know what he lived up to them. Dyng was not his choice. Leaving his family and friends was not his choice.But you have a choice on how you want to remember him.. If you chose to remember the good times then a smile should be on your face. If you choose to just remember him sick and in pain then you are allowing CANCER to live on after his death.. CANCER already took enough from you. Dont allow it to take all those wonderful memories that took years to build/make. Just take each day one day at a time... 



Yes this is normal or at lease thats what I have been told. I have thyroid cancer myself and I had mine reoved 12/10 and I remember that it hurt and I my voice seem to change a little bit.. What I did was I would eat some soft ice cream or sherbert or a milk shake.. It seem to cool my throat and it tasted good. I hope that you are doing well.

If you ever like to talk please feel free to message me.

I hope that you are feeling better.

Yes you need to be on the diet. I just had all my test today .

Your doctor should gave you a copy of the diet and what you need to do to get ready.


Yes you need to stay away from people for anbout 3-5 day and preg women and small kids they say 10 days.

You don't want to take changes.

Call your doctor office NOW and ask them. You are paying for good health care.

Hope all goes well

It reallly depends on the doctor and what is going on with you. I just had my shots and my doctor told me not to go off my meds.

It really is confussing but i suggest that you always ask for a copy of any test that is given to you, this way you can always look back and see when you had something done .

Its always good to have a copy.
