Thank You

I wanted to take a moment and say thank you for all of the prayers that you have given to my boyfriend and I. We went to the hospital this morning right after waking up. Although we knew the situation, we didn't know what to really expect when we got there. He looked peaceful, just like he was sleeping. He looked healthy, despite the fact that he was battling cancer and this heart attack. But he was still unresponsive. He was hooked up to so many machines and bags of medicine. The doctors did several tests and declared him brain dead around 2 o'clock. At this point the only decision to be made was how long we wanted to keep him on life support. Thankfully, for mind of peace, everyone already knew what he wanted as far as being kept alive or not. Around 5:30 this afternoon, the plug was pulled. He was able to live for just 15 minutes without any of the machines.

The boyfriend was able to pull through, but my heart broke because I knew what he was going through. I know death is never "fair." And as my principal would say "Fair is cotton candy and roller coasters." But I simply hate that the boyfriend never got to re-build his relationship with his dad, as his dad had finally become the "best version" of himself.

His work is done. May he now go rest high on that mountain.



So again, I say thank you for the support, prayers and  warm wishes that you have sent us. You have no idea how truly important you are to me.
