My Sister the day before (1-9-2013)

Wed after noon when I went down to be by Susan's side I told her We were going to have a sleep over, She told me NO! I told her "OH yes we are and you can't  stop me!" And I told her we were going to play a game that we use to play at bed time as a child "I'm going to get the last word!"  She told me "I'm going to get the last word!" I let her have it.  She told me she liked my shirt several different times. "All the little circles on it" she would say as she made a circle in the air with her finger. I held her hand and "tickled" her arm when I stopped she would moan a little, if I left go of her hand she would reach for it. She told me her Dr told her she didn't have long to live. I told her that I knew, but that she wouldn't be in any more pain and That I loved her and that we would be together again someday. She closed her eyes and that was pretty much her last full senescent to me.

Sounds like a wonderful goodbye to me. Of course, it's never easy to say goodbye.

It's never easy to say goodbye, but to have the time to say goodbye is priceless. ((ugs))

A poignant but precious memory of the last moments with your sister, Sharon. Wishing you continued strength in times to come.

I am so touched to read this. What a blessing to have been able to hold her hand and be with her right to the end. Not everyone gets that chance. You were both blessed. (((HUGS))))
