My name is Eileen . I have dealt w\ death before . This recent one I had was my dad and now my older brother who closer to me in age . My father just recently passed away from stage IV lung cancer on September 14 , 2012 . My older brother who is closer to me in age is dying from leukemia. He was diagnosed w\ leukemia in April 2012 while my dad was still alive fighting his stage IV lung cancer . My father 's cancer gotten worse over time and he was having a difficult time w\ his second round of chemo after my college graduation in May 2012 . He went under radiation treatment and third round of chemo last summer . Then he caught pneumonia during Labor Day weekend when his nurse came over to the house to examine him . His nurse told him that he needed to go to the hospital . He had a hard time swallowing his food and he had a feeding tube put into him so that he can eat . When I started my new job back in September , my father was put into hospice and he died one week later the morning of September 14, 2012 at 10:55 AM . My older brother who is closer to me in age is now fighting leukemia and now he needs have his spleen remove and he will need a bone marrow transplant . If he doesn't get them done he will die w\in six months . How do I deal w\ the loss of my father and if my brother dies how to deal w\ his passing when I 'm still dealing w\ my parents passing being so close to each other?
