Thank you to all of you wonderful friends out there who took the time to reply back to me. I can now see through this website that I am not alone. This is a painful and difficult time that I would not want anyone to have to go through. My husband passed away April 6, 2001, 1 day after my 35th birthday. He had myelodysplastic syndrome (a pre-leukemic disease of the bone marrow). The only cure was a bone marrow transplant. He was blessed to find a perfect bone marrow match through the national registry. His transplant was done on March 27, 2001 at Stanford. I really thought he would come through everything and be back in a normal routine in about a year or two. He has major complications from the chemo and radiation. All of his organs failed. I felt like my insides had been ripped out when I watched my beloved husband leave me. I joined a grief support group 2 weeks after he passed away. That was one of the best things I could have done. I have my memories to cherish and nothing can take that from me. They say it gets easier with time, I know for me I still feel the pain. I have learned to be strong and go on. Some days are better than others and some days are not. I am very grateful to have found this site. Elyse and anyone else who would like to email me please do so @firstname.lastname@example.org.
God Bless all of you!
