Notalgic November - Day 12

This day always is a day mixed with sadness for me.  This is th 11th anniversary of my mom's death.  She died at 61 from lung cancer.  We had no time to ready ourselves for her death.  She went into the hospital for what they diagnosed as a back problem.  After 10 days in the hospital they determined she had cancer.  She passed 4 days later.  To this day I'm not sure any of us knew what had hit us. 
October 1955  My mom and her sister getting ready for my aunt's wedding. At this point my parent's had their own wedding planned for November 19th.  I'm pretty sure my mom was extremely happy here! 
Today also marks a happy time for us!  Today is Chloe's 9th birthday!

Happy Birthday Chloe! I lost a friend last year the same way you lost your Mother. On a Monday she had a slight back ache, never had one before. It was a little worse on Tuesday but not enough to keep her from riding the horses. It got a little better on Wednesday. On Thursday it was worse again and she went to the dr. He admitted her to run some tests on her back. Thursday afternoon she was told it was lung cancer and had already spread. She had never smoked a cigarette in her life or worked around any harmful substances. She died the next morning. Such a shock to us all, it was so fast no one even had time to digest the fact that she had cancer before she died. She was 52yrs old.

That is incredible how quickly your mom went, my thoughts are with you. I lost my mom to lung cancer also about four years ago.
Love to you and the beautiful Chloe.
