R.I.P. My aunt

Earlier I wrote that my aunt had been diagnosed with cancer. Well, she died today. She had decided to go chuck it all and go home without treatment and be on hospice. They gave her two weeks, max. She didn’t make two weeks. A little over one. She died shortly before noon.

    Sorry to hear about your aunt. I hope I go that fast.

    I’m sorry to hear that, hon. My (favorite) aunt was just diagnosed with cancer in her gall bladder that spread to her liver. She’s started chemo, so we will see how it goes. I know how had it is, I’ve had several family members pass away from this awful disease. My thoughts are with you.

      Can you see additional posts on my blog after this one? Because I put up two more, and I can’t see them.

      Fortunately (?) I didn’t know my aunt all that well so I don’t feel anything in particular about his passing, beyond sadness for my family, especially my aunt’s husband and my grandparents.

        All right, never mind, now I can see the posts.

    Don’t know about your beliefs but, (maybe) she’s in a better place. I’m not sure if I’d want to do the treatment after seeing other’s suffer so much. Hope you are okay.

    I know you were’nt close, but your in my thoughts and prayers all the same, as I know you feel sadness for your family.
