Gary,
I will definitely lift you and your family up in prayer during this difficult time.

One thing I often tell my patients is that doctors are not Gods, even though sometimes they come off that way. No matter what, there is ALWAYS hope! I've seen countless, inexplicable miracles in cases that seemed beyond desperate.

And the end of a life well-lived is also miraculous, in itself. There is nobility and dignity in passing peacefully onto the next phase; whatever we believe that to be.

Blessings and peace to you,
Sue

Thanks everyone....we are a strong family with much love for each other and this will not break us. While we do not desire death, we will never fear it, because of our faith. Thankfully that is the case. That said, we aren't giving up and will continue to move forward because she has been down before and rebounded. I will hold her hand and face whatever might come our way, and not step back one bit.

Thanks again for all the kind words and thoughts!

Take care,
Gary

My father just got out of a very risky operation this morning for a health issue that appeared from nowhere, i know how it feels to have a close one in trouble, my issues went to the background when we found out he's not well. I will pray for you and your mother.

Thanks for all the support everyone....my Mom passed away this morning after a very brave and diligent fight against cancer. I held her hand until the end. She was a great woman full of caring and compassion for others and she will be missed by me, our family and most of all her grandkids.

Take some time and let your loved ones know how special they are to you. Time is short.

Take care,
Gary

Gary,
I'm so so sorry to hear of your loss. My prayers and thoughts are with you during this difficult time. May you be comforted and carried by those close to you, and may your beautiful memories of Mom sustain you as you grieve her passing. You are so right, life is desperately short! Working in a hospital, I know this all-too-well. Until we lose someone important to us, we seldom realize how much time we've wasted on the insignificant, irrelevant things of this world.

Hugs to you, my friend.
Sue

Sorry to hear of your mothers passing Gary. I am sure she has gone to a better place. It really brings home the mortality of our existence..... and the need to make the most of the short time we have on this earth. If you seriously consider this..BFS will just pale into insignificance.
My sympathies to you and your family at this sad time.
