Coming here and getting things off of your chest really helps. I am so sorry about your sister's situation. I wish she would have been more assertive and got treatment when she needed it. You are right, she needs to think aout the future of her children. How old are they? This was so sad to hear, but I guess we all have some things going on in our lives that is hard to handle. Just come here to vent and I am sure it will help you some. Nothing like seeing the words, I always say. Well, not alwys, but you know... I think it is therapeudic.
Try to take this one day at a time. I am glad that you and your sister have spent some quality time together. That is so important. Makes for good memories. You will need that in the future.
It sounds like you are grieving. I did that with my husband before he died. My first husband that is. He died of lung cancer in 2000. I had grieved so much before hand for his health. He was sick for a long time and wouldn't do anything about it. I finally got him to go to the doctor and we found out about the cancer. But I would worry about his health so much that when it finally got bad, I was able to handle it. I guess that is how it went. It has been ten or eleven years now, and life has gone on. I am happy for that. But if you ever want to share, we are here for you. I am sure you know how good the people are on here and the compassion that is shared.
Take care, keep posting.
