My Sister Desperately Wants to Live

Right now, my sister Mabel is in the hospital with lung failure due to Advanced Interstitial Fibrosis, a terminal lung disease. This is as serious as it gets. Her lungs are damn near useless. She is close to death. She has been hospitalized a half dozen times in the last year since her initial diagnosis. Each time, she almost died and brilliant, dedicated, compassionate medical professionals have saved her.

She has been working hard with Physical Therapist and Occupational Therapist to regain her physical strength with the new lungs. They took her for a walk OUTSIDE yesterday on a relatively warm day. Anticipating release from the hospital tomorrow.

Change of plans. Sis won’t be discharged tomorrow. PT/OT want to do more work with her. Not a lung issue. She’s just been laid up in bed for so long her knees and hips are weakened.
