Your post really hit home and I want you to know you are not alone. I lost my younger sister to a brain aneurism about 5 years ago but that still left
me with a brother and 2 sisters. 2014 has been a horrible year for us, my brother had Leukemia and after he went through the hell of chemo he was
still weak and they had a caregiver at his house who apparently wasn't watching him closely as my brother was recovering (no sign of cancer but would
face a slow recovery to gain back strength) he was in a wheelchair and when the caregiver told him to stay put she would be right back, he stood up,
lost his balance fell and hit his head on a table causing swelling and bleeding of the brain, the doctor told me he had 1 hour to live but passed the
next day, that was only 6 weeks ago, while this was going on one of my other sisters started feeling weak and went to the doctor, they said it
appeared she had a failing liver (she has never drank or did drugs) they said she also had 2 other problems with her blood that was killing her but
couldn't identify them. They sent her to the Mayo Clinic, while there our brother died. The Mayo clinic said they weren't sure of anything other than
she was dying. She passed last week, only a few months ago we were joking around as usual with no thought we would lose her a few months later! The
only good thing is she wasn't in pain and just grew weaker till she passed.
I now have one sister left and she has had breast cancer and right now she is having radiation treatment to her face (they have to slide a lead shield
between her eyelid and eyeball each time!) she only has one more treatment.
My sister that passed funeral is Monday and since my other sister is too weak to travel I will be alone as far as siblings go!
God, I miss them, we lost our parents about 10 years ago but i didn't think in such a short time our family would be virtually wiped out.
I'm sorry for taking your post to talk about my troubles but wanted you to know you have a 'brother' in me that feels your pain as well and I pray you
get through this and learn that you have to think about yourself and start taking care of yourself.
You and I both have witnessed pain, suffering and sometimes loss but don't forget, there are loved ones that love you and want the best for you!
I truly believe that our loved ones that has suffered on earth will be in paradise in the end and you will be able to embrace them pain-free once
again! You seem like a very good person and I wish and pray for only the best for you.
