I get home from a hard day at work..

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
To find out the worst news ever..I'm gonna try to type this out the best I can I'm crying so hard it's hard for me to see my writing..

I came in to find my dad tearing up and he looked at me and hugged me and told me my Uncle Bob is dying from cancer!

The worst part is it's a cancer that can be taken care of but he's so stubborn he won't go to the doctor he's pretty much just giving up! I'm so upset he's the only Uncle I have that I ever actually truly loved!

When I was little I used to send letters to him. My dad told me to never expect him to write back so I didn't..I just still kept on sending letters. Then one New Years the incredible happened..I got a letter from Uncle Bob! My dad was shocked and so was I but it became the greatest day of my life..the day I found out that My Uncle and I have so much in common! That was the day I became close to the only family member I truly loved.

This whole day has been horrible!

I can't write anymore..I'll tell more later..

I think that's a good idea. It might kind of get to him, just tell him how much you love him and want him to still be there, and how much you care; he really needs treatment

I am really really sorry you have to go through this. Especially coming home from work... Just to hear this bad news... Right?!

You Uncle Bob & you will be in my thoughts & prayers.
Sending a ton of *hugs* to you.


We'll always be here for you.

I'm confused - did you ever meet him in person? Your post makes it sound as if any actual two-way communication you had was limited to one written response he sent.

Yes I have seen him many times in person. My dad and I often drive out to see him whenever we get the chance. He lives in Kilbourne it's a small town kind of like Mahomet (Where I live.) My Grandma was buried in a town nearby Kilbourne and every mother's day my dad and I go to put flowers on her grave, while we are there we take the time to go see Uncle Bob.

Sorry my post confused you I was crying way too much to clarify things..
