I am so sorry about your sister, Jane. But I'm glad you found this board so soon. I'm no expert....Dad was just diagnosed a month ago.....but from what I've read here in the week and half since I found the board, nothing means nothing. It's not all that uncommon for people in stage 4 (like DAd also) to live much longer than the doctors predict. But of course, some do not. No one seems able to be accurate about any of that, and I'm learning not to panic or despair, but just to take up the issues as they arise and deal with them. This is a very unpredictable disease and can involve a wide range of problems and complications. But, even tho it is a fatal disease, there are several ways to treat it, and there are successes small and large day-to-day that we celebrate here. Be prepared for anything, try not to anticipate trouble before it rears its ugly head, and most of all, use this time--however long it is--to be with your sister, show her and tell her you love her, and share experiences that you both will treasure forever. And keep posting. We need each other. Prayers and hugs to you, your sister, and your family. Windy
