Sorry to announce to everyone Grace is in a coma and expected to last 2 days. This is a complete shock. Thanks for your support. I will now be absent for a good while with mourning and grief and funeral etc.

GBM from start to finish, a mere 4 weeks. It sucks totally. I had to get home to clean out the bank accounts and whatever else so I can survive with my children so I thought I would post this at the same time. So completely caught off guard, unprepared no life insurance nothing.

I will now go to the hospital to spend the night with her for as long as is possible before the end. She is very peaceful, looks incredibly healthy and pink and beautiful.

    I haven't been reading your posts for long - I only found this website last week - but your loss is palpable. Be strong, friend.

    She was moved to her final
    She was moved to her final living destination, long term care with auto morphine infusion pump attached. How long is unknown, but breathing was very shallow and irregular today. i am devastated and in a state of near terror as we await.

    Been thinking about you ever since the first post about your dear Grace's decline. Perhaps because I may be facing the same thing with our son down the road. Hope it helps to know that you are not the only ones going through this terrible thing. Please know that you and Grace are in my prayers and thoughts.

    my thoughts and prayers also
    My thoughts and prayers are with you also. This is a most terrible disease. it strikes without random, is fatal, and has no known cause and is fast and hard to treat at all let alone successfully.

    My wife was fit as they come, had a successful resection and responded well, but it just grows too darn fast. Anyway, her quality of life has been reasonable and she is making a dignified exit from this world. For that I am grateful. I still don't want to lose her, but its inevitable now.

    talking about strange events
    While waiting at the train station to go to the hospital a strange event happened to both my son and me. My daughter was elsewhere but had a different experience. At around 3:45 at the train station while waitng, a hand seemed to brush against us both in the same intense style my wife does. This also happened to Olivia my daughter at the same time. Whether one believes in religion or not there is some eerily familiar about this and the time coincides with my wifes lapse into a coma.

    Believe
    I firmly believe that was Grace's hand trying re-assure all of you that even when she passes, she will still be there with you.

    My mother passed in 1965 when I was only 3 and I have had a couple of "visits" from her since then, at the times when I needed her the most.

    You have been Blessed.

    Peace.
