Sister begins 10 raditation treatments today...one each week day.
Doctor hopes to get enough early results to get her home early next week and then I will just take her back daily for the remainder of the treatments.
The morphine is making her a bit loopy and she is really not eating much.
I did speak with the doc and as I expected we are on the count down. How much time depends on her decision about doing any more chemo once she gets past the current issue. But as he said, regardless of her decision, we are looking a possibly 6 months at best and 3 or less at worst. He said that if she wants no more chemo, he will arrange to start things with Hospice.
Given her overall health and eating issues, I feel we are much closer than either of those two estimates.
This info has not been shared with her or our parents yet, but that day will be here soon enough. God grant me the strenght to deal with that too. At this point, I can only pray that she have no pain, be at peace with the situation and that my folks mange to make it thru this ok.
Your prayers and well wishes are so greatly appreciated. Thank you all.
