  • OT: Thank You All - Decisons Are Made, Waiting now

    I truly appreciate the support from everybody here at TT. After 2 miracle recoveries, I don't think my wife has a third. She coded twice yesterday. With a broken hip, and clear cognitive damage, last night I signed DNR orders. We pulled life support, signed the papers for organ/tissue donor, and donated her remains to medical research. She is anesthetized and finally peaceful and pain free. Bev's spirit has moved on, but her body is still breathing -- thus technically retaining her title as world's most stubborn woman. I do not want to remember that image as my wife, the real Bev is already gone.

    I will finish the PA subwoofer for our local church, using her suggested decoration and carve her initials into it discreetly. She will have a working, living monument -- not another marker in a garden of stone.

    Please people, have a living will and medical directives to carry out your wishes. There is no harder decision to make than cessation of life.

    Call or visit your mom today.

    I am truly saddened Lou. Your family will be in my thoughts as I spend time with mine. I think I'll hug mom a little longer today. Best wishes for you and yours moving forward.

      Wow. Occasionally I get snapped into the reality of our existence and it's frailty. This is one those times. Thoughts with you Lou.

          I'm not often moved to tears, but this did it. You are a man of grace, Lou. Take care of yourself, and know that what little we have to offer here on TT, well, you know it's yours.

                ..And you find yourself time to talk to us schmucks amongst the chaos!

                Best of luck, peace, and wishes for Bev. We are all here for you and it is too easy to take a simple thing like mother's day for granted as you clearly stated.

                Warmest,

                        I don't think there is anything harder than going forward with a DNR. We had to do it for my sister a few years ago, and still the emotion of that time washes over me in full force sometimes. Those emotions honor your beloved and honor your spirit. big hugs, my friend.

                            Hard decision but the right one. I know the feeling, mom passed on 5yrs ago and would not have wanted to keep going as she was. It does get better Lou God Bless

                              words are so inadequate when it comes to matters of life and death. we often forget or take for granite what we have and how truly blessed we are. will be thinking of you and your family.
