    Rabid ,mentioned it in the B1G thread earlier...My dad passed away from metastatic colon cancer while Mrs. Celemo was pregnant with Meatball (the last heir to our family’s clan). I know you had a child recently and I can’t stress enough how much it hurts me that my dad never got to meet him. Teach your child about your dad, reinforce how much he would’ve loved your child. Explain how you were raised compared to how you raise your kid. Family is everything and it took me a while to process that. Oddly I didn’t process my feelings on the matter until I saw the Disney flick Meet the Robinsons. The floodgates opened and I told my toddler son how much he meant to everything (end rambling emotional post)

    Damn man. Dealing with late stage dementia with my mom. Couldn't imagine that and cancer. How far along was the dementia if you don't mind me asking.

    Condolences man

    All good and appreciate it.

    It escalated pretty quickly (faster than typically but I’d say 2 years after formal diagnosis. I don’t wanna scare you but that’s usually not how fast it progresses I don’t believe. But that along with the cancer probably didn’t help things. I honestly think she just gave up too. It sucks she’s gone but on the positive, she isn’t suffering anymore.

    Nah I get it. My mom's decline is about the same. She's at the point now where we think she's having mini strokes and she falls a lot. My only real question was with the diagnoses and timeliness being the same, did she audibalize pain, because my mom isn't?

    Again, sorry for all you went through. Shes in a better place and not suffering.

    Yeah, she mentioned her stomach hurt. She was always cold. She is a snowbird, so I saw her a couple days before she went down to FL for the winter. It was 50 in Ohio when I saw her and she had 4 sweatshirts on. Also, my stepdad told me like a week before she passed her stomach was getting really big and was sleeping like 14-16 hours a day. If you wanna talk more just PM me, I'd hate to hijack this thread.

    Took brother-in-law to hospital today. He refused ambulance transport, so we drove him. Semi coherent, asking for dead relatives, shaking uncontrollably. Turns out he's got blood clots, has had small strokes and a probable heart attack. 20+/-% heart function, in and out of it. We saw him Monday, he wasn't near this bad.

    Thanks gents. Doctors kept him 24 hrs, he's being transported home tonight by ambulance. Hospital can't do anything else for him, he'll be on hospice once he gets here.

    Wife is having a biopsy tomorrow to check out a nodule that grew from her previous mammogram. Hoping it's just a benign fibroadenoma.
