Friends and fellow warriors of brain cancer-
I have dreaded this post and this day. Our beautiful Sarah has gone to heaven. She joined the good Lord on Thursday the 17th at 2:32 p.m. She suffered greatly in the end. I could not post and tell you of her suffering. I could hardly breath. Even now I can hardly breath or exist. How can I go on? I do not know, but we will. One day at a time. Sarah has a younger brother and sister and my husband and I must be strong for them.
She was steadily declining. What they think happened is that her digestive system had shut down and was not metabolizing her nutrition but we continued to tube feed her. She ended up aspirating her nutrition and that ended her life. She could not breath. She sounded like she was drowning in her own body and I guess she was. It was was horrific. She labored to breath for almost two days before she lost the battle.
My advice to you is to to pay close attention as the end approaches. I second guess myself thinking, we should have know, but how could we have? She could not speak or hardly move.
I will continue to pray for each of you. May you all be blessed.
