    Marie,

    As my aunt told my father (who told her not to cry when she went to visit him at hospice), my tears are adding to the river of tears that carry him Heaven. My heart is breaking for you.

    Love,
    Carrie

    Jimbob, I just want to concur with what you said about it being worse for the family. My father had no recollection of his experience on the ventilator and bipap. He was very, very sick and it took him a while to know what was going on for days even after he came off the respirator. It’s a blessing that he didn’t remember. I know that it would have scared him. I only hope that he wasn’t aware of the changes in his body on his last days, also. I know he knew we were there on his last day but I hope that was the extent of it smile .

    Walden’s daughter, I hope that your brother is doing better and we’ll hear good news soon.

    Love,
    Carrie

    If you all get yahoo accounts, you can create a yahoo group with a message board on it. One person can create it and you can limit the group to invite only. You just have to know the people’s email addresses to make sure that they’re legitimate. If you leave the group public, you’ll eventually get advertisements (including adult sites).

    My fiance created a car yahoo group. If you have questions, just ask me smile .

    Di,

    I am so sorry. I hope that he tolerates the chemo well and I’m glad that he has that option. My family and myself will be praying for you.

    Do you still want to meet with my mom? She’d love to talk with you smile .

    Thanks everyone.
    I’m hanging in here. Just letting the mourning process take its course. I’m still in some denial and I’m working a lot of overtime so I can “ignore it” for a while. But it still hits me pretty hard from time to time.
    I really hope that everyone is doing well.
    Love,
    Carrie

    Di,

    I’m so sorry to hear this. I hope that the biopsy shows that they are wrong. We will talk soon.

    Thank you for the words of comfort. His funeral is Thursday morning. These next few days will be rough but I know that the rest will be tougher.

    I am comforted by a lot of things but especially by the fact that I can talk to him any time. While he was sick, he couldn’t answer the phone very often. Now I don’t even have to dial.

    Love you all,
    Carrie

    Thank you all for your kinds words. I’m leaving work shortly and trying to get on a stand-by flight instead of the late, late one that I’m currently on.

    Love,

    Thank you all. I can’t believe this is happening.
    I’m leaving tomorrow after work. My boss is letting me have his laptop to try to get some work done while I’m there (big projects due soon).

    My sister just told me that, once he’s in hospice and they stop the tranfusions, it could be as little as a day. She thinks he’s waiting for me to come. Rough news for me. I’m at work and I’m trying not to cry all day.

    Love,
    Crrie
