Running a business and caring for sister with cancer

Hi. I am new to this site. Thanks for letting me vent and giving any advice you can.

I own a business  and I am also the caregiver for my sister who has small cell lung cancer.  Her children are estranged so they are not helping. To top it off I also care for my 86 year old mom.  Luckily she is in pretty good health but she gets jealous because I am waiting my sister, even though mom knows sister is not doing good. I am totally exhausted.  I went through a divorce and never got a chance to mourn that before mom moved in with me. Now my sister.  I am very thankful that I can take care of her, but my business is suffering and so am I.  I get to the point I hate to hear her call for me, even though I k ow she cannot get up .  I have to do basically everything for her. I have an aide coming for two hours a day and I am working from home, but I need time away.  I need someone to step in and help.  I hate having these feeling and I know it is normal, but I don't like it.  And I don't want to say anything around family, I don't want her to feel like she is a burden.  Help please!
