I just talked to one of my sisters tonight and my mind is so boggled right now. We found out that our other sister has cancer and she is having to go through chemo and radiation. She had a hysterectomy done and some lymph nodes removed. I guess what I am wondering is how severe it could be. What stage could it be in?? She is such a strong willed person and doesn't ever want to let anyone know how much she is really hurting.
I haven't talked to my sister because I just don't know what to say. I know I will do nothing but cry and she doesn't need that now. I have no extra money to go be with her and it makes me feel like a shitty person. I cannot believe that in such a hard time I can't be there.
Why does this have to happen?? I feel like no matter what I am thinking the worst with it all and that's why I feel I can't talk to her. And knowing that I feel that way is wrong. I know people will say leave in God's hands but I don't even know if I believe that anymore.
I sit and think about the stupid fight we had a yr or so ago and can't help but feel guilty for the time lost. Why was I so stupid and let my pride get in the way???
I want to pray but I feel like I am going to just scream out, "WHY!!!" I don't want to lose my sister. I know I need to stay positive because that's what she needs.
What do I do?? How can I help from so far away??
No matter if u believe in God or not, I ask of you ladies please send good thoughts, prayers, whatever you can her way... Sorry if there were misspellings but i can barely see the keys. Thanks so much!

I agree with the others. Call her, even if you cry. Let her know you love her and you are there for her. I'm sorry you are dealing with this and I hope your sister makes a full recovery. Sometimes when things like this happen we realize that the small things in life and the little things we argue about are minuscule to the big picture. I doubt she will expect you to do more than try to stay positive and to pray for her.
