I lost my mom in the same time frame that you lost your DH.
She found out she had canser in Jan 2004 had her first surgery Feb 2nd and we lost her 8/9/04 just 16 days before I gave birth to her first grand child. She was 49 how old was your DH and what did he have?
Mom's started as Kidney canser that involved her vina cava before they found it. I got married just 5 weeks after that surgery and she was week but attended. Then it went to her hart just 10 short weeks after the first surgery and she had open hart surgery and we almost lost her durring that surgery. Then about 8 weeks passed and they found it in her hip bone and she had radation at that location. As of July 2004 she was clean as far as cat scans could show, she even made the trip to GA to see me and had plans to return for my birth and say the entire month of Sept in GA. Only to show up in her brain the last week of July and 2 short weeks after treatments of radation started on her brain she was gone.
When we found out she was sick in Jan they gave her 9 months and it is so sad how we did not belive them and how true the perdiction was. I only found out I was prego 10 days before she got the news.
