I am so sorry for the loss of your brother. You are not alone. Yes, there are others who who have passed quickly. My husband died less than 2 months after his first trip to emergency. Until then he was living a full, active life. We thought he was healthy. He wasn't officially diagnosised with CC until approximately 10 days before he passed away. Yes it is hard and yes it is shocking. Losing someone to this disease, especially so quickly isn't easy. I try to remember him as he was before this all started and am greatful that he only suffered for a short time. I truely believe our loved ones are never far away. They are always near us and will be with us forever in our hearts and memories.
I found this site a few days after he passed away. It has helped me in so many ways. Without this site and the wonderful people on it I don't think I would have been able to deal with all of this. I still have some good days and some not so good, but I try to just take things as they come now, one day at a time.
Keep coming back here. It really does help. Take care.
Love & Hugs,
"One Day At A Time"
