My brother in-law died.

Posted by   + Show Post

He wasn't expected to die. He had throat cancer and was going through chemo and was getting better. Cancer never spread. Doctors said he was fine and would be okay. He was given a brand new drug that not many people have used yet. The number was low. I remember out of that number 4 people died. His wife thinks that is what killed him. They did a autopsy. It will take a couple weeks before it comes back. He went to sleep and never woke up. The doctors are even puzzled. My DH is taking it pretty hard. Tomorrow is calling hours and Friday is the funeral.

He is. Thanks hun.

Quoting MumsTheWord571: You're welcome. My BIL passed away nearly 3 years ago now. It was be hard on my sister. She's still in a lot of pain from it. He was 33. Try to be supportive, no matter how crazy she seems. She may take everything personally and not be able to understand that what she's saying or doing is unreasonable. I wish someone had told me this because my sister and I had a great, close relationship but now we don't.

Hugs. I hope your DH can cope with the loss. I'm sure he's devastated too.

Quoting Janet:

Thanks.

Quoting MumsTheWord571: I'm so sorry.
