Goodbye to an amazing woman.
The news is bad. Beth is not going to make it. Her brain is not showing any activity. She is still alive, but will not be soon. She is donating organs, so they will keep her going until they can take them. She is having final tests tomorrow. They go through alot of tests to make sure there is no hope of her brain functioning, and there is no brain activity so there are a few scheduled for tomorrow, but it is just a formality at this point. and we knew early today that the end is near. My brother went home today to tell the kids. He is coming back tomorrow to, as he said,to hug and kiss my wife and tell her I love her one more time while she is alive. He does not want to be there when the plugs are pulled, although with the organ donation, they do not go through that until the organs are harvested. The kids don't want to see their mom like this either, nor do my parents. Every one has to deal with this in their own way. It has been a long, long, draining day today. We're all talked out, prayed out, cried out...although the tears do keep surfacing.This is one of the saddest things I've ever had to go through or watch someone go through.
