My sister/best friend was diagnosed with Multiple Meyoloma in October.  She has a tumor on her right hip that put her in a wheelchair.  I moved her to my home in San Antonio and we started radiation and chemo.  We finished the radiation and were in our second week of chemo when she suddenly took a turn for the worse.  We went to the ER and they put her in ICU.  Her kidneys failed.  We were sent home with Hospice last Wednesday.  She is in a coma now almost gone.  I think I’m going crazy.  I can’t think straight, having nightmares and migraines.  It’s happening so fast.  I cry and cry and then think I have no more tears but they come again!  Maybe I am crazy

No, Catherine, you're not crazy, but this crazy grief can make you feel that way!  I lost one sister in March and came very close to losing my other sister this summer.  To top it off, she was diagnosed with dementia, so in a way I feel like I'm losing her little by little as she's not the same as she used to be, we can't talk like we used to be able to.

I'm very sorry you're going through this, it's good that she has you.  I'm glad you have hospice, they're a godsend.  You'll be in my thoughts and prayers as you go through this.

I agree with Kay ~ it's good that your sister is receiving hospice care, and I hope you will avail yourself of all the services hospice has to offer the family as well as the patient being served. Don't hesitate to ask for the support you need and deserve ~ and know that we are here for you as well.
