Post GOD is calling my sister home today.
About 2 months ago, my foster sister, ( who I very much love like my real sisters ), was diagnosed with lung cancer in both lungs and bronchial tubes. Kemo failed. But, it left her immune system too weak to fight off a blood infection that has cooked her brain. They are removing life support at 2 PM.

Billy,

I'm so sorry to hear of your loss, and I'd like to pray asking for comfort for you and your family in this time of impending loss....

Heavenly Father,
You know us so initmately having knit us together in our mother's womb, and so it is with that knowledge in mind that I'd like to lift Billy and his family up to you right now. This occurence has not surprised you, and you are fully prepared to receive her into Your kingdom the moment the door closes on this side, but opens on the other. I humbly pray for those who've been left behind for the moment, asking that you'd allow them to celebrate the life, and the memory of this woman, your daughter. I would also like to ask that you would strengthen those who know You in Billy's family, and may they demonstrate Your grace, mercy, and love on behalf of those who know only the loss. Please give them strength, and peace, and courage to face the emotions of losing a family member. May You be glorified even in loss, for in it, is Heaven's gain! Thank you Lord for the opportunity You've allowed me to participate in this simple way, and may Your will be done in all things. In Jesus name, Amen

Thank you everyone. And Amen W4C

The life support is off. But, she may not be ready to leave us yet, as she is still holding on. The doctors say it could take 3 days for her to pass.

At least I was able to see her and tell her I love her again.

However, this has stressed my mom so much the she is now on life support from congestive hs
Heart failure. We are all a mess.

I wish the best for you and your family, and I'm sorry for your loss. As W4C said, celebrate her life. It's much better knowing she will be rid of cancer and in a better place.

My sister is still with us this morning. Just goes to show that there is nothing we can do to lengthen or shorten our lives. GOD holds the keys to life and death. And we won't die 1 second sooner or later than when he is ready to take us.

My mom is still on Life support and will recover. Unfortunately, it was congestive Heart failure. Their is no cure for CHF. The patient recovers and then has it happen again and they recover and then it happens again. This continues on until it kills them. Each time period between occurrences gets shorter and shorter. Mom's parents both died from CHF. So, I am well familiar with the way the next 18 months or less will play out.
