I lost my sister July 7th. On Jan. 15 she felt "weird" and went to the ER because she was pregnant and wanted to make sure the baby was OK. She had a seizure in the doorway of the hospital. They did an emergency C-section because she had two more seizures. After an MRI they found 4 tumors. The biopsy showed it was GBS 4. That was a shock (ofcourse), but before we could absorb the fact that she had cancer, she declined so fast that she lost the ability to speak, then eat, then move, Then breathe. The drs. didn't even know if she could hear us any more. They said they thought she was in a comma because the last month she didn't even open her eyes and the machine was breathing for her. Then death. I have never lost anyone that I was close to before. I am having a hard time with it. She left behind 5 children. 16y, 15y, 4y, 2y, 6 months. (she was only 35) I live 13 hrs. away and can't be there for my brother-in-law and the children, and it is killing me. I am so sorry you are in such heart break. I know there are good days and bad days ahead, but I hear time will make it easier to handle. I wish there was a "magic pill" that would heal people. I thank the Lord that my sister was a Christian and I will see her again someday. I prayed for you and your family. I am sorry, I wish I could say something that would ease your hurting. I am crying as I type because of what you are going through. I pray the Lord comforts your hearts. I am so sorry for your loss.

I am sorry to see you're going through this. I pray for peace for you and your family. God is good all the time, so keep your faith and trust that He knows what is best even when we don't see this as best. He created you and loves you more than anyone else. He will bring you through this. Witness for Him every time you go to the Dr. and let them see His love through you. Be blessed

Praise the Lord!! I am glad for you. May God give you many more years to praise His name. I am sorry about your sister, though. God will help you through the day when it comes.
I can't take this anymore. My sister is on a breathing machine, and has been given a tracheostomy to "make her more comfortable". She hasn't opened her eyes in 3 weeks, she can't move, swallow, or speak. My brother-in-law doesn't want to tell the dr.s to take her off the machine. I am glad I don't have to make that choice, I don't know what I'd do. I want her to be healed, but I don't have the faith that she will be. I know God can heal her, but I just don't believe He will.
I am so sorry for your loss. My sister was diagnosed with GBM (2/12) and has been given "weeks" to live. She has 5 children; her youngest is 3 months old. While I do not know what you are going through, I as a sister, can only imagine the pain you are feeling. I prayed for your family after I read your post. I hope you find comfort and healing. Trust in the Lord. He knows your pain.

I know what you are going through. I am sorry. She was blessed to have you as a friend. Sometimes it is our friends that are closer to us than our family. cherish the memories you have they will get you through this rough time.
I was just wondering how things went. I prayed for you

Thank you for sharing your story. I will pray for you and your family. I know it is hard for all who have a loved one going through this. My faith is what helps me go through life. I trust He will give you and your family the same comfort and peace that passes all understanding. Trust in the Lord with all thine heart, and lean not unto thine own understanding; in all thy ways acknowledge Him and He shall direct thy path. I quote scriptures to help make it through. I am thankful for a God who knows all my troubles. Be blessed, Amy

Thanmk you all. Yes, this GBM was stage 4 at diagnosis, and she really went down hill fast. I am so sorry for anyone who is going through this. I am thankful that the last words I say to her are "I love you". I tell her that every time I speak to her. I am thankful too to have a friend who holds the phone to my sisters ear so I can do that. I stayed for two weeks up where she is, and we shared a special time that I will never forget. I made sure to hold her baby by her bed so she can put her hand on him and look at him. One day I did that and she was staring at him, then turned her eyes on me and moved her hand to my cheek and started crying. (she could not talk at that point). I cried with her, and it was almost like we knew what the other one was trying to tell the other. I praise the Lord for that last moment of "communication". I am really having a hard time with this. Our childhood was rough, and I feel like we were robbed of childhood, then her marriage was bad, and now this. I know God is in control, and His will is perfect, but that doesn't help the pain. I wish she could have had a better life. Thank God she knows the Lord, and I believe she'll be in heaven. No more pain or sorrow. Thank You all again. I don't really have anyone to talk about this. I have no family other than my sister who contacts me, now I don't even have her. I know I have the Lord, but He made us to be "needy" for people too.
I failed to mention she is only 35 and has 5 children. 16, 15, 4, 2, and 3 months. They need their mommy. The Lord is in control, thoughj that thought doesn't ease the pain.
