Oh, and itser...I am sorry to learn about you sister. And NO, I dont have any idea what your going thru, nor do I want to. But please always feel free to try and educate us.

Itser, very sorry about your sister: I hope she continues to feel that it's worthwhile to fight.

But WTF is wrong with that hospital for allowing *6* people in her ICU room? That is totally effed up. Since she is unable to advocate for herself--and the ICU staff sound like morons--can you leave written instructions re things like that, and call frequently to make sure they're being followed? Or see if there is someone on staff with a brain who can act as her advocate when you're not there? Just some thoughts... Good luck.

Kudos, you were sympathetic for about a second.

Itser, sorry about your sister, and though I've never experienced a sister going through cancer, I totally understand what you're going through and know just how you feel.

Actually, she COULD have...she just hates being "mean", so when the nurses tried to shoo people out, she said it was OK for them to be there, and then got upset because these idiots were being exactly who they always are. She is married and her husband could have done the same thing, but he was tip-toeing around her feelings. It was just weird. As for the hospital staff, I don't know what to say. Apparently this one doesn't have any restrictions if the patient says it's Ok for the people to be there, as insane as that is.
Whatever. I do what I can to help and then press on. This is who she is, and I can't change that.

I do appreciate all the good thoughts, but let's move on to something happier,'kay?
