On New Years Eve my sister had trouble breathing so they called 911....they took her to our small town hospital in which they quickly airlifted her to the hospital in Modesto and found massive blood clots in her lungs and she's in the ICU on a ventilator and a medically induced coma. Her husband and children keep a constant vigil and this morning was advised to bring in a pulmonologist but he also said so much damage has been done with the clots and with her advanced cancer her quality of life isn't going to be good if she survives the clots. We all know that a heartbreaking decision will have to be made within the next couple of days. 6 weeks ago vital happy sister was living life and within a few days we will lose her. I'm trying to grasp it all but its too hard. I have no idea what I'm going to do without her. San

So sorry to hear about your sister. Really you can't grasp something like that you can only deal as best as you can. I lost my sister suddenly; one day all was well and then I got the call and it all seemed so unreal. Take it one day at a time and support each other.
