Good thoughts please?

Everything that doesn't fit anywhere else!

My mom's neighbor, Johnny, is this fabulous old man. Funny, dirty-minded, nice as could be, would give you the shirt off his back. Adores my mom and step-dad, me & Inara. Well, he has been fighting cancer for a long time now and they just recently stopped treatments because they said there was just no more to be done. Apparently today he took a drastic turn for the worse - incoherent, doesn't know anybody, seeing things, etc. They are taking him to the hospital. I don't know if the cancer hit his brain or if he had a stroke, but I worry that this is the end for him. I'd appreciate any thoughts/prayers you can send his and his family's way. If this is the end, I just want him to be able to go quickly and peacefully. :cry:

My heart goes out to the family (and friends). This disease is ruthless.

Good thoughts for him. That is the day I fear for my mother. The day they stop treatments. I feel for all of his family and friends right now. I can't even imagine . . .

Just talked to my mom. Johnny is in liver and kidney failure. They've stopped giving him his insulin. He at least is unconscious. They expect he may last a day or two. Hospice is coming to talk to his wife today. *sigh*

:( I'm so sorry, for all of his friends and family. Such a rough situation to be in. But at least he is unconscious . . . :(

Johnny died in his sleep at 4am this morning. His wife was with him, holding his hand and talking to him. I'll miss him, a lot. :cry:
