Much Love

    I spoke with Waterbaby a few minutes ago and she said I could share the following with the GoneRaw community. Her dad had another stroke this morning, and all indications are that the end is near. Her wish is that his exit from this world be as peaceful and painfree as possible. I will update you on this thread as more information becomes available. Her dad’s first name is Buel, but he goes by the nickname of Pudgie.

  • Oh Waterbaby, lots of love and light to you and your family <<<<<<<<<<

    There are NO words to express how much your notes have meant to me!!! My daddy lived 24 hours longer than he needed… His worse fear was to loose his mind and not know anyone or what he was doing…

    On Saturday, Dad had a beautiful outing with mother for an ice cream cone, but had a stroke after returning home… We got oxygen (helped with the anxiety), side rails (so he wouldn’t fall out of the bed), a bedside commode (never used as I was able to get him up to the lavatory) and medications, all from Hospice to help with his pain from the metastasized prostrate cancer (skull, spine, ribs, & hips) We had a terrible night, unable to relieve Dad’s extreme anxiety & pain…

    At 8:24 am Sunday, Dad had another stroke that left him totally unaware and no longer in control of himself… Hospice gave me a new combination for giving the meds, so I was the able to relieve his pain within 2 hours (Praise the Lord)... Mother & Dad had a peaceful night together under my watchful eye, while giving dad morphine every 2 hours… At 8:20 am Monday dad’s breathing took a significant change for the worse, so I gave him the medication to ease his breathing… When I turned his face to me and placed the med under his tongue, I knew death was imminent so I encouraged mother to change places with me, my eldest son was also there and we were all loving on him all during his death… Dad’s last breath was 8:33 am Monday Sept. 22, 2008

    Thank you for taking the time to give me your support and strength as I wrote a tribute to my dad …And was able to get up in that huge church and speak in front of 600-800 friends, relatives and customers, without stumbling… Without out YOU, this would not have been the case… Again I thank YOU from the bottom of my heart!!!
