    I just heard, my little sister's condition has worsened, palliative care only, we're saying our goodbyes. It's tough, it sucks, it's not fair, but there it is. :mad::(:sour::crying:

    Been there with my brother. There's damn all good in such a situation except for the opportunity to spend this last precious time surrounding her with love. Wishing her peace.

    This is no good. I am glad to read y'all have a plan to let her be comfortable and have a chance to say goodbye.

    Won't like this, because Eff cancer, but please know you have my most sincere condolences. The only good is that you get to say goodbye. That's a precious thing. Laugh with her, remember the fun, ridiculous times with her. Relive the joy and carry that forward. Be well.

    FVCK CANCER!!!
    It's no consolation, but I can empathize with you... Lost my big brother to cancer in '06.
    Peace be with your sister and peace be with you and your family in your grief.

    I never actually learned to play very well
    I’m extremely sorry for your sister and you and your family. Make the best of her remaining time that you can.

    Someone very very high up in US govt has proposed a “moon shot” effort to tame cancer. I hope it gets done.

    And when the time comes that she starts slipping away, hearing is one of the last senses to go, so play her favorite songs for her to comfort her.
