    You did get to have some time with her, didn't you? That's the most important thing, my dear.

    I did get to visit her. I know it is. It just hurts now. I've gotten 2 calls in the past 2 days that she may pass anytime now, and it's really wearing on me. Every time my phone so much beeps my heart starts racing... I just going insane right now :/

    stash, I know it feels like an emergency, but it may actually be really peaceful...maybe if you begin to think about ways to honor her legacy you will feel less helpless...hug

    sitting vigil is very hard...but if you use the time to reflect on who she is and how you might carry her strongest qualities and memory into the future, it can be a wonderful act of love and service...it doesn't eliminate all of the pain and loss, but it sweetens the brew a tiny bit....xoxoxox

    She passed away early this morning. I am sad that I have lost her, but I am glad she is no longer suffering from ALS. Service is next Friday. This will be a long week.

    Thank you all. Back from the funeral. Was hard. She won't be buried for 3-5 months because arlington cemetery is backed up. :/

    One of our students has a brain tumor. For awhile, they'd wondered what was wrong with vertigo, then they noticed speech/thought and other things "slightly off". This makes me so sick and sad, and although I know "it's not the end", the process to get back on track is no cake-walk, either.

    Again with the "it's always the nicest people who have the worst things happening to them", too.

    Sorry to hear that. A friend of mine had a brain tumor removed years ago and recovered completely. Hoping your student has the same sort of outcome.

    cancer is not unbeatable. it doesn't mean death. it's an illness. we are terrorized by it but illness is part of life, we are no robots, no machines, no superhumans.and I am talking out of personal experience, don't get me wrong.

    I've just read the saddest blog from a mom with twin four-year old boys. A month ago, one of the boys was diagnosed with an extremely aggressive brain tumor. It responded to all treatment by tripling in size in very short period of time. It's inoperable, and the doctors have no further treatment……yet mom continues to have such faith in God….it is just heart-wrenching….
