Last weekend I found out one of my younger brothers has terminal cancer. Bilateral cancer in his lungs, cancer of the liver and spleen. Although we have not been close for years he's still family. he lives about 6 hrs from me but has made it clear he does not want anybody to come see him. He's down to about 125 lbs. The doctors give him 6 months if he doesn;t take treatment and a year if he does.
I really don't know what to do. I'm thinking of going to see him anyway. The worst they can do is turn me away.
Please let all of us know the outcome of your story. It seems now days so many families are estranged, and I don't understand that at all, and I am one of those people. My daughter and son in law would not help me and my husband with anything when I was going through breast cancer - almost 3 years ago. And they only live 11 miles away. They just did not want to be bothered with us. And we are still estranged - because that is the way they want it to be and I have 3 Grand children they will not let me see. It is hard to heal a broken heart.
I believe in Miracles and I, too, will be praying for you and your brother. I hope some kind of contact can be made - even it is by telephone or letter. Seems sometimes some people just want to be left alone during a terminal illness. We all care about you and your situation.
Praying for you and your family
