So I lost my mom when I was 25 and 6 months pregnant with my first child. My mom was diagnosed in January 2007 with stage 4 breast cancer with mets to the lungs and spine. She was told then that there was nothing really anyone could do so she took hormonal therapy and lived out the rest of her life the best she could. She died November 11th 2008, it will be 3 years in November and it is still hard for me at times to think that she is actually gone. We were not very close and I am afraid at times she died dissapointed in me. I was pregnant when she died and not married and had not finished college yet. I do miss her though especially now being a mom myself, there are times that I think I need to ask mom that and then like a bad dream it hits me again that she is not here for me to ask advice. I just hope that my kids will love me like i loved her and respect me like i do her...I guess it never gets easy we just learn to cope with the emptiness left after our moms die.
