View Full Version : Tommy is going downhill fast but is feeling so blessed

Please keep my brother in your thoughts and prayers. His health is degenerating rapidly. Even in just the past week he has gotten so much weaker.

Here's something from my sister Nancy: "Tom very much enjoys the many cards that arrive each day. The first day he read each one himself, now I open and read them for him. What a comfort they offer. His face just relaxes with peace and joy. Such a gift."

Cyndi, I'm sorry I didn't get a chance to write your brother. My husband died of brain cancer, so I know the journey and it is rough. I think of you often, and know that Tommy is in my thoughts and prayers.

So sorry you all are going through this. I haven't been out much to send his card yet...but should be able to by the first of the week. Prayers for all of you.

May he rest peacefully, and may you and your family smile with each and every memory of the good times:)) Love you, GF

I'm glad we could help him. Remember, when he is smiling it's because he's sitting in God's hand.

Prayers said for Tommy and for the family- may God wrap his arms around you and give you some comfort.

Prayers for comfort and peace! It's very hard at this stage - just went through it with my Mom.

It is terribly hard, especially for my sister Nancy, who has been caring for him in her home since October when he got the diagnosis. He is now in a rehab center as the left side of his body is barely functioning. She speaks of being a failure, for not being able to keep caring for him at home. But she has done everything anyone could do for our brother.

Tommy only wants to lay in bed and rest. It is hard to get him up to dress, shower and eat. They have had to stop PT but still want him to spend some time sitting in the sun, which he so enjoys. He says he is not in pain.

Tommy has one last MRI on Tuesday. We'll learn the results on Thursday. Pray especially that Nancy will be emotionally ready to hear what the oncologist has to tell us. She is worn and fragile right now and I worry for her. I know the end is almost here.

Cyndi, you are all in my thoughts and prayers. (((HUGS)))

I will pray for Tommy to have a peaceful passing if that is God's plan for him. And will say prayers for Nancy and the whole family as you all go through this very emotional time. God bless.

I was wondering if you got the MRI results back yet? Still praying for you and your family.


February 27th, 2016, 01:46 AM
Cyndi, any news on the MRI results yet? Don't forget we are all with you in spirit. Hang on. If you need to vent we are here.
