Thanks for your words. I believe somehow they will ring true to me too. RP is in such pain and discomfort. He has about 7 bedsores and ascites in his stomach are terrible. The dr doesn't want to drain him again due to the loss of protien and he has no protien intake. Everywhere he is moved causes pain. He is having difficulty in breathing and now has oxygen. It seems except when he is sleeping we are constantly trying this position and that every 10 minutes. Then all the moving totally exhausts him. I suffer horribly to see him in such pain, but he never fusses or loses his temper. I would be tearing everyone's head off if it were me. I look forward to when he sleeps because it doesn't appear to be in a much pain, but he doesn't want to take all his pain meds and just sleep. But the pain is getting worse and he is getting weaker, so he is beginning to take more pain meds. It is all much to horrible to watch. But he is such a fighter, he is still clinging to life as much as he can not ready to give up no matter how much pain he is in. Thanks for listening. Denise W.
