- Wedding: February 2014
Hi bees. I posted a couple weeks ago about my aunt having cancer and wanting some tips for helping her undergo treatment.
Unfortunately, on Boxing Day my aunt passed away 🙁
everyone was just so thoughtful and helpful, I wanted to come back and let everyone know that I greatly appreciated all the kind words. I took your advice and brought her a big bag of goodies that might be helpful during chemo but it never got to that point. the doctors decided she was too weak to follow through on treatment. we had a lovely christmas day in the hospital with her and even got to bring her dog in to see her. she was so happy and told me she was completely at peace. i didn’t see her on boxing day but apparently she was never really lucid or awake all day so i’m glad my last memories of her will be from christmas day. i truly believe she wanted us to have a great christmas so she waited as long as she could. two weeks ago i never could have imagined i’d be ending this year without my aunt. she went on vacation to florida with girlfriends in november! but i’m glad she didn’t have to suffer long and i’m glad that she knew how much i loved her thanks to all your great tips.
so 2013 is not ending quite as i had imagined. and not having my aunt at my wedding is going to be heartbreaking.
thanks for all your support xo.
