I occassionally lurk on this board, and thought I would finally say hi. I had a horrible year last year. My dad was diagnosed with stage 4 colon cancer in April 09 and two weeks after that his dad, my grandad passed away from cancer. Both were completely unexpected. My dad under went surgery to try to help with the cancer, but the surgeon messed up his surgery and cut his life a lot shorter than it should have been. He was never able to get chemo due to the surgery screw up and passed away on July 5th 2009. A week after he passed away I discovered I was pregnant with my first baby. I had a m/c on Aug 5th 2009. In September I found out I was pregnant again, but this time it was ectopic and I lost my left fallopian tube due to this. In January, once again I found out I was pregnant, thankfully I was blessed with my little angel Amry on Oct 4, 2010, which is my dad's birthday. Even after a year I think about him all the time and wish he was here to meet his first grandchild and be apart of her life. I do believe he was a big help in bringing my LO into this world and am thankful for that, but miss him dearly. Anyway, sorry for the long intro.
First of all...BIG HUGS to you hon! You had a very rough year through 2009, and I'm so sorry to hear of both the loss of your grandfather and your father! And the loss of two pregnancies, wow, I would not know what to do in that situation!
I also want to tell you congratulations on the birth of your beautiful daughter!! Remember, you will always remember the good times you had with your father, and he is always with you in your heart, and he does see his granddaughter every day! He's watching over you!! The pain never goes away, it just becomes capable to manage and ease! It's been 6 months since my mother passed away, and I haven't accepted it, but I'm bearing with it.
