    Miacarre, it is now Saturday, but please know I am so very sorry for your loss. I know how heartbreaking it must be for your DH to have missed seeing his sister before she passed.

    Sending big hugs your way.

    MIACARRE- Praying for you all. Maybe it was for the best that your husband didn't get there before she died. He didn't have to see her suffer. I have been an RN for 42 years and only one time did I get on my knees and beg a doctor. We had a Multiple Myeloma patient that turning her every 2 hours as required was causing excruciating pain. I got on my knees and begged the doctor to write an order not to turn the patient. We all knew she was going to die before she could develop a bed sore. He wrote the order. Please take solace in the fact that she is not suffering anymore. I truly believe it takes more love to let someone go than to try to keep them when circumstances are not in their best interest. May God be with you all and give you peace.

    Miacarre - that is so sad. I hope he can find some comfort in being with other family members. My heart goes out to all of you.

    Thank you all! I just received a call 30 minutes ago from my husband that his sister passed 2 hours ago while his on his way to see her.

    miacarre - You are all in my thoughts and I am so sorry your SIL is suffering. I'm sending you big hugs.

    As expected, I have no idea what we are having for dinner tonight. My brother flies in this evening from Missouri to help out with my dad for the next 5 days so we will probably grab something for everyone after I pick him up at the airport.

    And jdouglas - I know things have taken a turn for the worse with your DW. You are also both in my thoughts.

    MIACARRE- Praying for you and your family. My mother had an extramedullary plasmacytoma which is Multiple Myeloma outside the bone and an old dear high school friend that lives in Raleigh was recently diagnosed. I know this disease all too well. It is a terrible disease and your husband will need lots of support when he gets home. Praying for you all.
