One of my nieces went to the hospital last week and has been diagnosed with stage 4 cancer…both lungs, live and throughout her abdomen. She is a non-smoker, but cancer runs in the family…a lot. She is currently on life support and decisions will be made tomorrow to take her off life support. This has happened so quickly, my mind is blown. There were no warning signs for this. I’m trying to be there for her sister and kids. Life can be challenging and loss is difficult to deal with. But it is better dealing with loss with the folks I care about for mutual support, compassion and embrace our grief together.
That’s just so sad. Prayers for you and the family.
I am so sorry to read this. Best wishes to you and yours my friend.
No words can be said to that and I can’t say I’ll send you my prayers but I sincerely hope everything happens painlessly and wish you and your family all the best.
I am very sorry to read this… My support in these difficult times…
I am very sorry to hear this about your niece @Cary1.
Thanks to everyone for their good thoughts. We are muddling through as best as possible. I really appreciated everyone’s caring compassion.
@Cary1, truly sorry to hear that, as tragic doesn’t seem to come close enough. Not in any way in an attempt to derail your post, but our family has had our fair share of severe illnesses and deaths, and 2021-2022 haven’t been much fun.
We will keep you, and your in our prayers. I’m sure it is difficult, but your help, and assistance is, and will be very appreciated. And yes, difficult, doesn’t even seem to come close either.
@SessionDrummer Thanks to you and everyone who has commented. She went off life support yesterday, late afternoon and was moved to the hospice wing at the hospital. They made her as comfortable as possible and she died a couple of hours later. I feel the loss, but am glad she passed quickly and no longer suffers. My emotions are all over the place today and I am grateful for my friends for their kind thoughts and support.
Very sorry for your loss @Cary1. My sincere condolences to you and your family.
I’m very sorry for your loss, @Cary1 . My condolances for you and your family.
I’m sorry for your loss @Cary1.
My condolences to you and your family.
@Lucas_James_Holden @delltrapp @Gazza7 Thanks for the kind thoughts. Family members and friends are grieving hard right now. I’m doing the best I can to be supportive for her sister, who I love dearly. I know I already posted this, but I am truly glad she did not suffer for a long period of time and died quickly.
I hate wars, especially now.
Teenagers who bully others. Today again I saw such a situation …
