Here's a cheery thread! Not sure why I am posting this, there's no shabs & bants to be here, and it's a bit needy. It's something different I suppose.
So anyway, yeah. over the year her cancer has gone from looking potentially gone to consuming her. No interventions are making a difference, she weighs as much as a child, can't eat or move for pain. She's stopped all treatments and is spending her last days with her husband, not seeing anyone else at all, just the two of them until the end. I would love to say goodbye, but I can completely understand why they want to be so insular. She's not the kind of person to give up, but I can't imagine she has very many days left.
She is proper cool. Taught me about about everything from Marc Bolan to Nietsche from an early age, and despite talking straight she never judged me for any of my awkward experimental phases, she always understood what I was trying to do (her and my uncle, they are very similar in being the best). Whenever anyone else in my family would give me a sneery "bit weird" she would step in and destroy them for it. Everyone needs someone like that, very few people get one but I was really lucky to have her.
Goodbye, Sarah - best aunt ever.
Sooo, uhhh....end of self indulgent needy sadness thread.
