Prayers for Greg and family please - 05/28/12 07:51 AM

Susie told me yesterday that her brother-in-law, Vince's brother Greg has been given 3 weeks to live. He will be going on a feeding tube tomorrow and put on hospice. Greg has ALS. He communicates by texting and doesn't know how long he will be able to do this. Please keep Greg and the family in your thoughts and prayers.

Edit.

The info I was given back in May turned out to be wrong.

I talked to Susie today and she said that Greg was put on hospice yesterday and by his request, food is now being withheld. He wants to make it through to next weekend so he can play poker with his brothers and Dad one more time. Then he said he will be ready to go.

Please keep the family in your prayers. It is almost over. May God bless and keep him. cry

So sorry for everyone. My brother in law did the same 'refuse to eat' thing on his choice. He went peacefully. Made us all very sad but it was his decision to go that way. Prayers for everyone for strength in a very hard time.

This just makes me want to cry. But thankfully, he is being given the opportunity to make his own end of life decisions. It has to give him a great deal of peace. My sympathies to Greg and your family.

You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers as well, Flutist. It's very sad but comforting to know he is able to make his own decision on this. I'm glad you and your family were able to have more time with him than originally thought.

I showed this thread to Vince and he wanted me to tell all of you "thank you for your thoughts and prayers". He will be keeping me posted the next couple of weeks.

I too add my thanks. The next few weeks are not going to be easy.
