Hello. I am so very sorry about the passing of your father. I am sitting here past midnight thinking of my father who also died last year. My dad died on Oct 30,2009. Kind of the same situation as you. My father was perfectly healthy in April, couldn't swallow one day, stage four esohphageal cancer and gone six months later. Very very hard to take. Like you, I am devastated. I am angry at the doctors, how they responded, and their complete and utter lack of giving a crap that my dad is no longer here. I know there was nothing that could be done, but I find myself constantly reliving every detail and thinking of things I wish I had done. Maybe I could have moved him to a better hospital ( he was at the Cleveland clinic) maybe we should have gotten a third opinion etc. In the end though, nothing would have changed. I miss him so much. It hurts to even think of him. I have never posted anything on a web site before, but your post hit close to home. It just sucks and is so hard to continue living a normal life. Life goes on. blah blah blah.... I am a 40 yr old female and understand what you are going through. Just thought you should know that you are not alone, and I completely understand how you feel. I can't believe it either. I still find myself going to pick up the phone and call him. How can I still be in denial? I was there. I held his hand as he took his last peaceful breath on this earth. Did that really happen? How could it? It is just bullshit.... I wish I could give you some lovely christian biblical verses (I am a christian by the way) but right now it makes no sense to me either. Wow, sorry for the rant, I was supposed to make you feel better, instead, maybe I needed you to make me feel better. Felt good to write that. I hope that you are okay and will find some peace in all of this mess. We will make it. They would want us to. I try and think about how mad my father would be if he knew how upset I am. I can hear his voice telling me to get on with things and that we will be together again someday. This sometimes helps me, maybe it will help you too... Thanks for listening.... Best Regards, Bailey16

My dad thought he had a mild stroke and got a cat scan. He was told he would not make it past 6 weeks. Tumors on the brain. He had lung cancer.
He made it 10 months and passed away in October 09. I never really thought he would die. I too can't think about him yet. I push him out of my mind because it hurts too much.
I understand...I really do.:)
