Topic: Finding the strength.
I wasn't sure what group to post on so I am putting it here. I had it on the general forum but it felt wrong.
My sister, with her husband, has spent the last week nursing her mother in law at home. She died this morning at home after being told 4 weeks ago she had extensive secondary's in her liver from bowel cancer. In March last year, we were with our other sister when she died from CC. That was my sisters first experience of dying, today was her second. I am so incredibly proud of what she has done in the last four weeks and especially the last 48 hours as she held the hands of her husband and mother in law to take them through this.
My intent is not to upset anyone but to give hope to those that are in that dark, frightening place and questioning how you find the strength to get through. Somehow - you will. Somehow, you just do. From somewhere, you find the strength and reserve to do things you never thought you could.
To my sister for her amazing courage and for Alice, her spirited mother in law, be at peace now.
In the stars now . . . .
