    I'm so sorry to hear about your sister's illness, Sculptor. It's never easy getting bad news about a loved one.

    Retired 96, sorry for your sad news as well.

    I offer my knowledge to you both. PM questions if you need. If I don't know the answer, I'll find out.
    If I can help, I will.

    Prayers sent for both of your family members.

    Hugs,

    T1

The doctor said he is stage 4 and started his first chemo treatment last night...In the past 6 years he had had a heart attack, major back surgery and right hip replacement, and now we find out he has stage 4 cancer.. He is only 69 and has always been in good health until the past 5-6 years... He doesn't drink and hasn't smoked in over 40 years...He is the only family my wife has left and they are very close and we only live 1 block from each other....Doug is my best friend and it hurts to know that he may only have months to live..
      Retired96, sorry to have missed you in my well-wishes to Sculptor. I'm very sorry to hear about your best friend.

                  Sculptor and Retired96, I'm sorry about what you and your sister and brother-in-law are going through.. I lost my mom to lung cancer back in 1991, and can absolutely relate. My thoughts and prayers are with both of you.

                    Thank you photone, I am sorry to hear of your loss as well.
                    I hope to get more specific details from my sister next time we talk on the phone, this was so out of the blue and a shock I couldn't think straight on the phone during that conversation.
                    Sis is prone to telling "white lies" (learned from father no doubt) and how this is defined is she, like our late father, will cover up, minimize and hide as much as possible to save us from bad news, so a "how are you feeling" is more likely to be met with a "oh I feel great, full of energy, this new medication makes me feel ten years younger!" when the reality is completely the opposite of that.

                    What really annoys me is she had been in the hospital with pneumonia for some period of time 4 months ago, yet never told me a thing about it! this is part of the "white lies" not wanting to "worry" us, so she only called to tell me about the cancer and the pneumonia when it came down to the wire it looks like where this can't be hidden or covered up.

                    I swear, I'm not making this up- my dad's legal paper will actually stated that when he passed away, he didn't want a funeral, and for those involved to not tell anyone he had passed away until he was interred in the VA cemetary crypt!
                    Unfortunately for his secrecy and "white lie" plan to spare us, he passed away here in my car 5 minutes from the nearest hospital while we were returning from dinner.

                    You know, I really want to say: "sis I'm a big boy now, I can handle bad news, death, dismemberment, seriously, I don't need my world "safety cushion" wrapped for my protection!"

                        I have somewhat of an update to add I guess, I talked to my cousin and his wife who live about an hour or so from my sister, they went to visit her over the holidays as did her two sons who live in Colorado, and the details they gave me is that the lung cancer was already stage 4 but she was in okay condition and hospice was/is doing a once a week visit and on-call 24/7 for her.
                        That was about 3 weeks ago and the boys' original plane tickets back in December were purchased for a certain date/flight and due to her going downhill rapidly at the time, they had to change their tickets (it was going to be $1,000 to do it) but they did change their flight somehow and had a good visit.
                        I'm going to call tomorrow, it's been a case of my trying to call a couple of times but getting no answer, and not knowing if maybe they were away on a trip, in the the hospital, sleeping, or what, so I was waiting for her to call me when she was up and about.
                        I'll know more maybe tomorrow but of course the whole thing now is going to be a hospice care with morphine etc., to keep her comfortable to the end which sounds like it is rapidly progressing in that direction.

                        I'm keeping upbeat and positive, and going about my daily routine. I'm okay with how this is going since it can't be changed, and I know there's nothing I can do from 1,500 miles away really. She doesn't wan't a funeral/service thing and all that doom and gloom, so there won't be one. She looked very good in this pic from 2005 when she was 61

                            I guess I will conclude this with the last update, unfortunately my Bro-law emailed me Thursday morning to tell me my sister passed away that night at home. She went downhill rapidly starting about 3 weeks ago, and everything had just shut down.
                            At least it was not drawn out for weeks or months in the hospital on machines, that was a blessing.

                              Wow. I am so sorry for the loss to you and your family.

                              You are right that it was a blessing that her end of life was not drawn out & unnatural. The down side is that you didn't get to spend time with her.

                              Praying for you all.
