My baby girl (kitty) is very, very, very sick

I am beside myself with grief and I just have to vent. One of my three kitties is very sick. I saw the Vet on Saturday and she says she will be gone within the next 1-4 weeks. She has lost 5 pounds in the last few months, 2.5 within the last month alone. Her anemia numbers went from 29 to 14 in two weeks.
They think she has cancer. I am preparing myself to say goodbye to her. I'm giving her lots of treats, and lots of brushing, her favorite things. She purrs like crazy, and she is still moving, though not very much. She has taken up residence on my husband's desk, and he has kindly moved his stuff to the kitchen bar so she can spread out. She comes down and lays in the kitchen with her head hanging over the water bowl and that's the extent of her movements for the last two months.
She was our greeter, if you were two feet tall or 6 feet tall, she would welcome you with meows and leg weaving. She was always in the middle of the action and she would come to check on the other two when they get into tussles.
She loved to hang out in my bathroom. She had her own sink in there, it's never been used for anything other than her water bowl (there are two). She would hang out with me in there and it was her lair. She hasn't been in there in quite a long time now.
I'm going to miss her when she's gone, all I can do is try to make the most of my time with her now.
