Update On My Daughter, Johnnybegood

Cannot remember when I last posted. My girl is still in the fight, but just barely after enduring 6 very hard years. Twice in the last week, she has defied a 24 hour prognosis. I know in my heart that there will not be another rally, as she simply has nothing left in reserve. I have been here in Kentucky for over a month & watched her downhill slide. My son flew out on Saturday as the predicted end was inevitable & he was here for her 50th birthday celebration which she enjoyed a tiny bit of. In addition to pain patches, she is on a continous pain pump with extra doses to be administered every 20 min.  She very seldom wakes & is rarely cognizant of what is happening or who is nearby. We can simply try to keep her comfortable & somewhat hydrated with very tiny amounts of liquids & jello as she can tolerate.

This is heartbreaking beyond belief. She is so frightened & I am once again helpless.

Luv,

Wolfen

    My heart goes out to you in all you have been through with your husband and now your daughter. We don’t know why bad things happen to good people but we do know God is there to give us the strength we need to go through them. My prayers are for you and your family

    oh, Karen, I'm so sorry to

    oh, Karen, I'm so sorry to hear this.  JBG has faught so hard for so long, i understand she has run out of reserve.  i'm so glad you and her brother are with her.  she may not be able to show you she knows you are there, but i'm sure she does and it must be a blessing to her.  i'm am praying for the whole family.  may God hold each of you and carry you thru this terrible time.  may JBG no be in pain and if God calls her home, I pray it is painless and peaceful.  I pray God will bless you, your son, and JBG's husband with strength and that you will find comfort in the good memories you have of JBG.

    God bless you all,

    dj

    hand, as you hold JBG's hand.....losing a child has to be the toughest thing in anybody's world.  Gawd knows she's been a hell of a fighter!  I'm praying for you, your son, and JBG....It's so hard to know what to say at times like this...just know that I'm holding your family in my thoughts....
