Just wanted to see if I might be able to get a group hug and some good thoughts:hugs: .

A little history:
About 2 1/2 years ago my father in law found out he had Hepatitis C, not sure how he contracted it, they think maybe an imunization from traveling overseas many years ago. He seemed to be doing alright, he went ahead and retired, then last year in May he suffered a stroke. Since then he has been in and out of the hospital getting blood, platlets and medications and has continued to get weaker. On June 11th he went into the hospital after having a seizure... well he has never come back out. Last week everyone decided that he is fighting a loosing battle with this. Yesterday my mother in law made the decision to take him off of everthing but the pain medication and oxygen.. she has not left his side for more than an hour since he went into the hospital in June. He is comfortable, but not very responsive to anyone and in little to no pain. Its just so difficult to see someone that was full of life and now not able to cough to relieve some congestion or even swallow to get a drink. Also seeing my husband cry is one of the toughest things to deal with, it just kills me.

Thanks for letting me ramble about this.

Cindy

Im so sorry to hear about your situation. You are in my prayers! I lost my grandfather due to Hepatitis C that he contracted in the army years and years before it finally took a hold of his life. He went from walking around the block 3 times a day to not walking at all. I am so sorry for your husband to have to deal with that. :hugs: :hugs:

Again thank you everyone for your hugs and prayers. My father-in-law passed away at about 12:30pm today, its been a stressfull day. Thankfully he went very peacefully in my mother-in-laws arms. We have had a great deal of family around for support so things are going well, I know these next few days will be rough though. Again thank your for all of your support and kindness, I knew I loved this place for a reason:love:

Nolacindy, I'm so sorry for your loss. The decision to let someone die peacefully when there is no hope sounds easy, but it is probably one of the hardest decisions a family has to make. My heart goes out to all of you. :hugs:
