THE IMPERFECT WIDOW

Navigating This New Life

Welcome to The Imperfect Widow, a unique blog about being real on your grief journey. After losing my husband of 15 years only 2 years ago, these are lessons I learned.  I want to share my journey with the hope of helping others in the club we didn't choose to join.

 

MY STORY - FROM WIFE TO WIDOW

January 15, 2017.  It started there. Spending a relaxing Sunday at home, when my husband took a seizure and we rushed him to the hospital.  We thought it was from the pneumonia he'd been battling.  Nope - it was Cancer!  Fucking Cancer.  After days and days of testing we found out he had Stage 4 metastatic kidney cancer which spread to his lungs and brain.  5 weeks later he was gone!  This is my journey.
