Just a sad postscript to my blog about my sister's miracle recovery from sepsis in hospice. A month to the day she was admitted, she passed away. The infection returned to claim her but as I wrote, she woke up and got up and was able to walk (with help) to the chapel to have the service she wanted to honour her life. She was treated beautifully by the hospice pastor who called in on her daily to play her favourite music, which we were given to play at her funeral service. And, on the day she took her last breath, I was by her side, along with the pastor from her care home who had been reading her favourite psalms. She had two pastors who gave her the love and care she needed that month. For that our family are grateful. Rest in peace my dear sister, we miss you already!
