  • I really shouldn't be posting about this

    My wonderful sister - older, more beautiful and better in every way - has just been diagnosed with cancer.

    I thought I was doing well (have known for over a week now) but it's hit me really hard the last three days. Not only is she my best friend, but she is a true lady - generous, gracious, and gorgeous.

    She is more worried about everyone around her - typical, actually - and I hate to admit that I'm feeling very low indeed. I don't like to to lumber this on you, and I have really good friends around me who know and who have been very supportive. But sometimes it's good to unload on complete strangers, isn't it?

    Can't bear to think of a world where my niece is without her marvellous mummy, and I'll be without my guiding star. If there's any justice in this world...
    With love,
    Daisy & Me

    What horrible & shocking news for you to have to take on board - you will need time for it to sink in and you wouldnt be human if you didnt feel so low about it. Am sending you some <<hugs>> and hope that there are treatment options that will help your sister battle against it.

        Thanks, both of you - as I said, I'm not sure if I should be writing about this, as I'm sure people don't want to read it.

        But I really do appreciate your hugs and kind thoughts. Thank you.
        With love,

            I'm so sorry to hear your news, that's so tough on all of you. Sometimes it's easier to come and unburden yourself to people you don't really know as you don't have to be strong or supportive for us, which you do for your sister and family and there'll always be a friendly word & virtual hug for you here, which may help in the teensiest tiniest way.

            Take care of yourself & thinking of you ((hugs))

                  My thoughts are with you & your family at this time. I hope if she has treatment it works for her. Remember people with cancer survive & get well. My mum had cancer about 6 yrs ago & she is now clear. A neighbour of mine had breast cancer & is also well. Good luck to all of you involved. Stay positive.

                    {{{{{{BIG HUGS}}}}}} It's so tough for the nearest and dearest, so don't beat yourself up for feeling so down. It's hard to come to terms with and as Jan said, it's often easier to tell people you don't know how you feel.

                    What type of cancer does she have? A lot of treatments nowadays are quite aggresive and she might have a good chance of beating it.

                    At least you are a loving and close family. When my dad died of cancer 6 years ago, I had a nasty, spiteful half-brother to deal with who was only interested in how much money he would inherit.

                    Be strong,

                        oh god. im so sorry honey. Cancer is a horrible thing. What kind of cancer is it? Your sister must be very worried, not to mention scared. Its good for you to be there for her at this time. She needs all the strenth around her.

                        It is so much easier to talk to strangers about something like this. Its good to talk / type and it feels good to get everything out.

                        Feel free to keep posting. We will all be here to support you through the difficult times.

                        I'll pray for you both tonight.

                          As Autumn Faeiry has said, we are all here for you. You never mentioned any hope with possible treatment. She is going to need all your love and support so you give it to her and we will prop you up through here. Deal?

                            As they say back home - "Oh Jaysus" - now the keyboard is really drowning !

                            Thank you all so much - what a privilege to have such nice comments from you all.

                            At the moment, the diagnosis is DCIS but it's a tumour, so the spe******t thinks they only caught the oustide. She's having a lumpectomy on Saturday and the pathology results won't be in until 23rd December. Good timing, or what?

                            Radiotherapy to begin in January, with chemo if the path results are for aggresive cancer. It's the waiting we can't bear - she's having a ball, 'though; a fortnight off work and nothing to do but watch black & white movies (her words, BTW, not mine !)

                            And I think that's what's bothering me the most about it all - if we knew for sure what we were dealing with, then so be it. But it's the uncertainty I hate.

                            Does that make sense?
                            With love,

                              Totally makes sense. Hang on in there love, and come to us when you're feeling pants.

                              Sleep well, take care,
