    Default Call from Aunt Alma

    Howard's Aunt Alma just called with an update about Chris. He is in the hospital with a morphine drip. He was over medicated and threw up, but is resting now. He has 5 brain tumors, 1 of which has swollen his right eye shut and he can't hear out of his right ear.

    Aunt Jean, Chris's grandmother, is doing alright. She has reached the point where she just wants him out of his pain.

    Kathy, Chris's mom was asked what to do if his heart stops. She wouldn't make a decision. So the Dr. called Mike, Chris's dad, in Texas. He's told the drs. if his heart stops, don't intercede, let nature take it's course.

    It has been a hard journey for this part of DH's family, my family. My prayers are that when Chris takes his last breath here, he'll take his first breath in heaven. I know his Great grandmother, Dolia, and Great PaPa, Pat, and Howard will be there waiting for him.

    So sorry to hear this. He has suffered a lot, and hopefully they can keep him comfortable until it's his time.

    Enjoy life and do what makes you happy. Everything else will follow.

    Every day I try to do one thing that challenges my comfort zone.

    May his passing be peaceful & may the Lord bring comfort to the family as they wait for inevitable, & then grieve. It's a hard journey.

    You are all in my thoughts as this is so stressful on the family. Hopefully Chris is heavily medicated and not feeling any pain. I think his Dad made the right decision to DNR.
