Well for the last year or so has been crazy. First it was my father in law with that flesh eating bacteria, then he had a heart attack we got him better. Then my mother in law's leg started swelling. She went to the doctor they thought they had treated it but it kept getting worse so went back to the doctor and we found out she had a tumor on one of her kidneys and that she had cervical cancer. We found all this out around Thanksgiving. She started cemo and it was shrinking the tumor but not touching the cancer. Then she started having problems with her kidneys these last few months so she had to stop the cemo. She got real sick on 06-06-14 that is when we found out one of her kidneys had shut down amd the other one was shutting down. She was released from the hospital on 06-10-14. She came home on hospice. DH and I stayed home to take care of her. We would get up in the middle of the night to give her meds to her. I can say she was a strong fighter. She fought to see her birthday. She passed away on her birthday 06-17-14 @ 7:13 am. It broke my heart to see her suffer and it was the hardest thing I had to see watching her slowly slipping away. But I promised her I would be the till the end. We laid her to rest yesterday. I know it has been only a couple of days but I miss her so much. She might have been my mother in law but she was more like my mom.
