Back in March my 30 year old sister went to the ER for throwing up, she couldn't even keep water down. She was hospitalized and threw up for 2 weeks straight. Didn't have a bowel movement for almost a month. Well after lots of tests and surgeries they found out she has stage 4 cancer. She is still in the hospital, has barely eaten in 3 months and isn't doing well. She has a G tube and a J tube and yesterday she had surgery to replace her J tube which was blocked. Today I found out that they did that to see if it would help her to stop throwing up. Well it didn't and now she's on an IV medicine that's suppose to dry up her gastro line in hopes that will make her stop. If she can't stop throwing up she can't start chemo. It's their last line of hope. I'm 6 years younger than her, and we're incredibly close and very alike in personality and looks. Most think we're twins. Yesterday I went to see her because she wanted to give me my birthday present. My birthday was the 7th. It was a beautiful bracelet that had 2 beads in the color of our birthstones that looked like 2 peas in a pod. With 2 leafs that had a J for me and a R for her. I want to cry when I look at it. I feel as she's giving up and she wants me to remember how alike we are. I've been incredibly depressed today and we won't find out till tomorrow if the meds have worked. I'm scared of losing her. She's not just my sister, she's my best friend. I pray and pray for her to get better but she just keeps getting worse. 4 years ago I lost my grandpa to an infection that he couldn't beat due to having prostate cancer. I can't lose her...
Please say a prayer for my sister, Randi. I'm at a loss and feel I need to reach out and get as many prayers for her as I can.
