Undying

Post by KaptainSkitzo » Wed Jun 14, 2006 8:24 am

Last thursday, I took Rose to her doctor. What happened was the last thing we ever expected.
Some of you know that she's been dealing with cancer. She was diagnosed with ovarian cancer in Nov 2003, had surgery a few weeks later(Dec 17), and went through chemotherapy that cost her her hair. She went into remission for a while, but was monitored closely in case it came back. It did. She was getting Chemo when we went to Germany last year(although, with the treatments spaced 3 weeks apart, she didn't miss any.) The treatments changed several times, as they were only holding back the growth of the cancer, not killing it. She even tried a couple of experimental drugs, to no avail.
Lately, she had been experiencing fluid build-up in her abdomen. At first, we thought it may be a side effect of the previous treatment. The fluid was drained, and sent to a lab. There, they grew a copy of her tumor and hit it with everything they had.
Nothing.
The doctor delivered this news to us on thursday. He's given her only a couple of months to live, as the cancer has gotten very agressive. She has been placed on "home hospice", and has a little box that delivers a dose of pain medication every 10 minutes. She also has a little button if she needs more. Everyone who knows her is devastated. She is a strong woman, and doesn't even look sick. It hasn't fully sunk in that I'm going to lose her. She is my soul-mate, and we've only had 5 1/2 years together. The following song took on a whole new meaning for me that day.

By Doro Pesch

"Undying"

Lately I’ve been thinking
That forever is just a lie
‘Cause I’ve remembered all the pain I felt
When my only true love died
But last night I got the feeling
There was a spirit in the air
I lit a candle and I held my breath
I swear I saw you standing there
You spoke to me in whispers
And I melted at what I heard
There were echoes from the other side
In each and every word

[Chorus]
Said love is undying
True love never dies
We’ll meet up again
‘Cause love has no end
Love is undying
I’m so glad I saw you
I shivered inside
When you closed your eyes
But love is undying

And last night I dreamed a dream of you
Where you took me to the other side
You looked so happy, not a trace of tears
And I could not help but cry
You said I wasn’t ready
To tell my world goodbye
But you’d wait for me until the end of time
And forever is not a lie

[Chorus]
Love is undying
True love never dies
We’ll meet up again
‘Cause love has no end
No love is undying
I’m so glad I saw you
I shivered inside
When you said goodbye
But love is undying
Love is undying
Undying
Undying

[Chorus]
Love is undying
True love never dies
We’ll meet up again
‘Cause love has no end
No love is undying
I’m so glad I saw you
I shivered inside
When you said goodbye
But love is undying
Love is undying
There’s no denying
You’re heaven sent
You came and you went
But love is undying
Love is undying
Love is undying
Undying
Love is undying
Love is undying

I appreciate everyone's thoughts! So far, Rose is not in pain, and only experiencing minor discomfort if she eats more than just a little bit. She is still in good spirits, and I'm doing what I can to keep her smiling. I am working hard getting ready for her family to arrive from Germany. We're expecting them early next week, at the soonest. All that matters, is that she isn't suffering. Hell, she's even asked me to joke about the situation. She knows that writing has become my passion in life(aside from her, of course), and she wants me to keep with it. I have promiced her that I won't self-destruct after she's gone, and I intend to keep that promice. Expect that I'll do some venting on here....I hope I don't offend anyone in doing so. I have known many of you for a long time, and consider you guys to be friends. I know I haven't been around much of late, but it seems than no one has.

Thanks for listening.
