This is always a sad and bewildering time. But…. Forget about what you are SUPPOSED to do. Just do. Spend your time telling him you love him, and that you expect to see him in the next life. pray for his comfort. remind him of the good things of the past. Smile as often as you can. Dying should not be painful, and the worst pain is the relationship confusion. So make sure he knows he has been great for your life.

Hello @neoandgreen, I’m sorry to hear that your brother is sick.

I don’t think there is any right or wrong way to react. As old karl said above….spend this time with him telling him you love him.

bless your heart. 21 years old and dealing with this horrible disease, doesnt seem fair. Have to remind myself constantly that God is in charge, not us imperfect humans. My husband about to transition to AML, 76 yrs old. We, too are scared and dont know what to expect, may I ask when he was diagnosed and how long has he fought this disease?
