I am so sorry. Hang in there and be strong. I have lost many people to cancer, and I know it's tough. Someone else might say wipe away the tears, but let them flow. Let the tears run their course. We all fall down. But why? So we can learn to pick ourselves up. Life has a cycle, and we all are going to go at some time. Hold your memories dear, and enjoy the life you have.

My best wishes go your way. May your aunt rest in peace.

I'm so sorry. One of my friends from 1st grade resently lost her dad due to his heart, lungs and kidneys failing. Cancer looks painful, so at least she isn't in pain any more.

Me: let's go to bed early *envisions a swinging pendulum and begins to fall asleep*

Brain: boorrring! Let's think about everything you want to do and everything that's ever happened!

Brain continues to ramble on for 3+ hours

Stomach: I'm hungry!

Me: I hate you both!!!

And now you know why I stay up so late.

@fishy: I totally feel you on that, my brain NEVER shuts up! >.<*

@tiffany: It is and the treatment for it is worse but my aunt was a fighter, my whole family is. She fought it for I know a solid 5 years probably more, through chemo and remission and return. It's just her body finally had enough and she had had enough, after her long fight she was spiritually prepared to die.

My nan was like that (she died when I was very young). Based on what my mum says she had cancer for years. It would go into remission and then just come back. I think her last words were about how she didn't want to die, but cancer is such a horrible disease that it seems to never let up even if you spend years fighting it.

It was so post to be a general check up, but I ended up getting an inprint for night guard. I still can't get that gross taste out of my mouth and I can't brush my teeth because it will scrape off this glossy stuff the dentist painted on my teeth. Also a few min ago, I was cleaning my small tank. Then my mom yells for me to tell me that my rescue I found a new home for, shadow died because they put her by the window. Now my hard work on having her trained and playful is poff, gone.
