My dear sweet Sister-in-law was diagnosed with AML4 on Dec. 18, 2009, just one week before Christmas. She spent 5 1/2 months in the hospital doing everything she could do to live. She had such a strong fighting spirit and endured much pain without complaint. She passed away on May 16, 2010. She was amazing. How grateful I am to have had her in my life. How grateful I am for the moments that we were able to visit. She was such a sweet loving person and example to me. I have been lucky enough to spend time with her children every Friday. I call myself Mary Poppins as I tend to their needs and help out the best that I can, cooking, cleaning and doting on her little ones.
