Waiting.......... UPDATE!!!!!

Hey All,
My Bro-in-law had a massive stroke Thursday and I have been at the hospital with my sister since then. With complications of the kidneys, heart, and diabetes.....he is not going to make it. Hospice was called in yesterday? (losing track of my days) I have never been thru something like this and I gotta say..... This is horrible! The waiting for someone to die is terrible. I keep praying to God to heal him or take him. He refused all life support with DNR in effect. NG, oxygen, insulin...all meds stopped except for comfort drugs. He is now in a coma. Breathing is irregular and congested, urine output is tinted with blood, fever ..... Moaning is tearing my sis up but they assure her he is pain free. How long can this go on? We have to keep it so cold in this room because of his fever that my lungs are hurting. I stay covered up thru the nite....even my head. Threw up yellow flem this morning and actually felt better. I know this is not good for me or my condition but I cannot leave. My sis has no one else. She has 2 sons.... One 35 and the other 32..... But they are so addicted to prescription drugs that they are useless. More a hinder than anything. So we watch....and wait...and pray...and wait. Thanks for the ear. Needed to vent. Damn I'm tired. Love you guys


Brother in law passed away a few hours ago. Sad but happy he is out of pain. Thanks guys

I'm sorry about your sister's husband, Jennie. Nobody can predict how long things will take to come to a natural resolution...only time will tell. I'm glad you are able to be there for her.

Kim and I have been on the hospital run for 4-months now...

Praying for you to stay healthy and for your sister to cope with her loss. Take care of you both. So sorry you had to go thru this; it is so hard to watch someone hanging on to life and trying to cross over at the same time...I watched my Dad do it 6 years ago this April 25th. May he rest in peace.
