My grandfathers dying, please pray.

post #1 of 27
Thread Starter 
I just wanted to say goodbye for awhile because I wont be able to get on the computer. Heres why:

We found out on Friday, my uncle has cancer all the way though his body and has weeks to live. On saturday morning my Grandfather colapsed(sp) and was rushed to the hospital having seizers and than was rushed to another hosptal to have a CT Scan done, it was descovered that he had an anyrism in his brain and they were going to operate and try to fix it or whatever they do, but it ruptured before surgury and my Granpa fell in to a coma, there was hope yesturday that he meight regain conscinese(SP I am an awful speller) today but he sliped into a deeper coma this morning and now has very little brain movement so the doctors gave him a 99.9% chance of not making it. Were all praying for the miricle that he'll just wake up. But I know he probably wont. He's in a hospetal 2.5 hours away and my parents and I had to come back and feed the cats and pick some stuff up for my Granma or else I wouldn't even be writing this.

All I can say is please pray.

I am so sorry. I am thinking of you at this difficult time. My grandad died in December after being in a coma for a week - so I know how awful it is. Just tell him how much you love him - I am sure that he can hear you.

Thank you all for your kind words and prayers.

They took my Grandfather off the life support today and he is breathing on his own but still in a deep coma. They say in a couple of days if he gets no worse they wll move him out of ICU and into a private room. That'll be nice since we can all be in there then and talking to him and the sort.
His heart is fine just his brain is damaged, so we just have to take it one day at a time.

We'll keep the prayers coming, then, and hope that he continues to improve. Being able to have his family around him may make a great deal of difference.

Thank you all for your kind words, but my grandfather passed away on Wed. Feb. 4. They took him off life support again and he passed within minutes. Which was a blessing. He wouldn't have wanted to lay in a coma.

So we are having his funeral tomorrow. Must remember to bring lots of kleenex.

Thank you again for all your kind words and thoughts.

I'm sorry to hear of your loss Alicia.

I'll keep you and your family in my thoughts during this difficult time. I found this board to be a terrific source of support after I learned that my aunt died.

I am so sorry for your loss of your grandfather. As you say, I´m sure he wouldn´t have wanted to be living in a coma, so this is better alternative. It´s good that all this went peacefully.
What was your grandfathers name?

I am also sorry for your uncle beeing so ill.

You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers!

My grandfathers name was Arthur Hugo.

I can't thank you all enough for your wonderful support.

We are headed off to my uncle's funeral this afternoon, he passed on Feb. 12, 2004 of severe cancer.

At least they both are not suffering any longer.
