43. Here, my dear.
You are lifting many weights at the moment, indeed.

We are here for you.

My sympathies. I remember when my dad was dying from complications of late-onset diabetes. As far as we knew, cancer was one of the few things he didn't have. But it was awful. My sympathies.

The ONLY even MINIMAL positive about such an agonizing time (at least from what we felt as a family) is that the magnitude of the suffering you see your loved one endure ends when they pass. And you take some comfort in that, at least. Not a lot of comfort, but there is some. Sometimes it blunts the impact. At least it did with us. My sympathies. Cherish the time you still have. And come and cry on our shoulders - many shoulders open and available here!
