It's the saddest thing to feel you are watching one's family beginning to dissolve.

I'm an ancient gay by anyone's standard, going on 72 in ten months. My Father passed away last September at 92. My mother is quite healthy and mentally sharp, but after 73 years of marriage, being alone has taken a toll. One of my sisters is dealing with metatatic breast cancer that has invaded her left eye with new cancerous areas in her lungs and bones. I'm dealing with the return of prostate cancer for the third time, but in comparison, it's no bigge. Fortunately we comprise a large family, but all the rest have families except for one of my brothers and myself. Once my treatments are completed, I am seriously considering moving back to my Mother's home. She gets very upset when I mention this as she is fully able to take care of herself. I just can't handle thinking about her being alone so much of the time. Needless to add, these are trying times, but I keep reminding myself how much worse these conditions can be for many others without means. Still, it's new sadness for me.
