tired and sad Posted February 24, 2006 Report Share Posted February 24, 2006 (edited) I lost my sister on July 31st after her open heart surgery. Death of your sister so totaly unexpected takes you aback. How do you survive? I have asked myself this several times. Now Mom has told me that Hospice is coming in. She told me it was like a death sentence. I told her I was selfish I really wanted her around a very long time. She has suffered 10 years with osteoperosis. Her lungs are struggling, I hear it in her voice. I call her every morning I call her every evening. Lord how am I to get through this??? How do I go on? I want her pain to stop but I want her here to call, when I need a hug, when I need a recipe, when I just need reassuring. I am 50 years old you would think I could get through this. NO I can't. My sister was my support when I was angry, sad, disappointed, happy, excited, anything she was my best friend. Now she is gone and I am losing my Mom now too. I am so far away from all my family and have only my dh here to offer support, but I get now why are you crying...man I just want some one to offer support to say they understand. My brother goes to see her very often, he is fortunate to see her often, I feel helpless being so far away. Help me.
