Maryanne Posted July 6, 2005 Share Posted July 6, 2005 Hi Maryanne My name is Caryl and I am Cathy's younger sister. I saw your post and thought I would respond for Cathy. Cathy is resting somewhat comforterbly at home surrounded by family. As you know the cancer had spread to her brain and spine and is quickly taking hold. Cathy is unable to get out of bed and is heavily medicated ( methadone) to help her with the pain. Hospice has suggested that there is not much more time and Cathy is begining her transistion. Cathy has just past her 4 year mark and is looking forward to her nephews birthday this Sunday. She has moment's of lucidity but for the most part has lost conception of time and is easily confused. My sister has had alot of friends and family visting the past couple of months and has been fortunate enough to have alot of closure wtih alot of people. We are all dealing as best we can knowing that soon we will lose a precious friend, sister and daughter. I pray each day that her transition will be peaceful. It is difficult to articulate how very sad and scared I am, but I continue to try and stay strong for my sister. The family has found much comfort and support in this website and know Cathy would continue to post if possible. Please keep praying for my sister and once again much thanks to all of you....
