Grieving before they die?
I've never posted here before but I'm sort of confused. My sister was recently diagnosed with colorectal cancer, and we learned today that she is a stage 4. I feel as if I'm grieving already and she's still alive. I should be thankful we still have a few months. The doctor recommended Hospice care...this is all so new. Just last July we lost a family member. He died of a massive heart attack and was in a coma for a week. We felt robbed of not having had the time to say goodbye or "I love you." Yet, here we are with this opportunity to walk through this journey with my sister and I'm just so numb...grieving for our loved one who already passed away and now awaiting the parting of another. Not sure what I'm looking for here.
