Can I ask for some Prayers/Good vibes?

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
My uncle Bruce is dying of the lung cancer he was diagnosed with about 6 months ago. I went to see him with my mom today, the family is keeping a constant bedside vigil at this point. He has opted to stay at home, instead of going to the hospital, and thankfully his family doctor has been wonderful in keeping proper medications at his wife's disposal. He was put on oxygen a few hours ago, and an IV is in place for high doses of morphine when he needs it.

When I left this afternoon I knew it would be the last time I saw him- in this world anyways, and it was so hard to say goodbye and walk out the door. Our family is very close knit, and his loss will be a devastating one to us all.

I'd like to have you guys send him some positive energy/prayers that his passing is a peaceful and painfree one, if you don't mind...Thanks

I understand what you're going through. It's difficult to see someone close in your family struggle from an illness. My Dad passed away in 1993, and the 27th of this month will make 11 years that he's been gone. Through time I've learned to cope with the fact that my Dad is gone, but we still celebrate his birthdays and the 27th.

May your Uncle Bruce have a very peaceful journey to heaven.

God bless.

Thank you so much you guys.

I called my mom a while ago and she was leaving to spend the night at Bruce's house, his breathing is very labored and he has spoken to a minister, I assume to make his peace with God. Its basically a waiting game.

His wife is by his side constantly, whispering her love to him, and reminicing with him all the wonderful memories they have had as a couple- it is really very beautiful and touching.

They say something good comes out of everything that happens to us- I know for myself I have learned that I need to use my moments in life to the fullest. My aunt, through her actions with Bruce has truly taught me what it means to love someone with your whole being, and I only hope I can set the same kind of example for my children with my own marriage.

Thank you all for being there for me, it means so much to have someone thinking of us.

Just an update- my uncle Bruce passed away peacefully on Sunday night. He had his family around him, and knew nothing but love in his last moments.

Although I am incredibly sad that hes gone, I am glad he was with the people he loved most in the world, in his own home, and completely comfortable and pain free.

The hard part now, is knowing what to say to all the people who are grieving his loss The funeral tomorrow is going to be very difficult.

Thank you all for your support
