Update on FIL

Just wanted to drop by with an update on my father-in-law.  His condition has been up and down so far.  Mostly down.  The staff have been saying that he doesn't have much longer, but he continues to fight to live.  He has a very strong will to live and being a large man, we are told that he could survive several days on his body's reserves...whatever that means.  We've spent quite a bit of time at the hospital, and spent the night there last night.  It is very hard, as you know, to see him struggle to breathe.  But we are confident that when this is over he will be in a better place.  He has lived a long and good life.  Thank you all so much for your thoughts and prayers.  They mean so much.  I will return to regular posting and commenting when things get back to normal...whatever that is.  :)

Hugs to all,
Cheryl

  6. It is a very difficult time for your family right now Cheryl. It is hard to let them go, but it is sometimes harder to see them linger.

    Keeping you in my prayers.

  7. Just know that I am thinking of you. I relate to how hard it is to watch as a parent goes through the dieing process. I was a hospice nurse for 7 years and cared for many dieing patients. I too have lost my parents and my husbands parents. I don't know how I could have handled all of this if I didn't have faith that we would see them again and that they will be so much happier after they have passed.
    Blessing and hugs to you! LeAnn
