For those friends who have been asking for an update on my sisters health, I'm sad to say that she is once more back in hospital. The same disease has returned again but is much less severe and she is stronger than the last time. The doctors have changed some of her medication. The disease seems to return very quickly once it starts. I was talking to her one day and she was saying that she felt very well but the next day she was in hospital again. I know that her age is something that we have to keep in mind, but I'm still hoping that she will recover and have a little more of good quality life. At 86, she is the same age as both my mother and older sister were when they passed away. She has no fear of death and doesn't want to be kept alive by a machine. I still believe it is possible that she will recover but it is something that we cannot know. Blessings.

Hi Anora, Thank you once again for your kind words. I fully realize that the years are there and that the time does come for all of us, when the body says this is it, but I am still hopeful that she will get a little more quality time. We all miss our loved ones and most expect to meet again somehow, somewhere just as we have known each other in the past. Blessings.

Well it all depends on her quality of life ,and if she still feels strong is okay to be 86 years old. I will be praying for her recovery. Blesssings to your sister.

I am so sorry that she is back in the hospital again, I'll send my prayers. I am glad that this time she seems to be stronger. Old age ain't for the cowards, that's for sure.

It is indeed sad news to know that your sister is in the hospital again. I know how difficult it is to see a loved one ill. I also have a sister who is very ill. It breaks our heart to watch her suffer and we are happy when she is well. I will pray for your sister's well being. God bless.

It's always sad to lose a loved one no matter how old, and no matter what the problem is. I sure hope that whatever happens, she doesn't suffer. I'm glad she has lived a nice long life, and your whole family is in my prayers. Thank you for the update. I hope things work out for the best.

Hi danishcanadian, Thank you for being there my friend. I know that all things do work out for the best and no one can live forever. Quality of life is also very important. Having a positive outlook has always helped her through some rough times in her life and continues to do so. The fact that the disease came back so quickly is a concern but she is a fighter. Blessings.
