Last evening, my ex neighbor called me to inform that her elder sister will be taken off the ventilator today. Chances of her still being alive is very slim. Docs have given up hope & family have already made funeral arrangements.
She has been ill with bone cancer & has been in hospital from 1st May. She was one person who was fairly active & watched what she ate. Hardly saw her ill. She has been battling cancer from 1994. Kept it a secret from close friends. Her sister told me that Yam [elder sister] wants to stop all medication, chemo, etc & is ready to go. She is very tired & does not want to be in pain anymore.
So, those of you who have good health, please value it & take good care of yourselves [a good reminder to myself too!]. Those of you who are battling any disease, hope you take better care of yourselves!!!
Will be taking half day off today to visit my ex neighbors family.
It does not matter how long we live but more important is how well we lived!!!
