Pink Grandma,
  On March 8th, My dad's rather difficult journey was concluded as  he passed away.  I found it helpful to email to you during the last 5 1/2 months and plan to stay involved with the liver foundation in Illinois.  I want to see the success in transplant and keep the hope for others.  I guess sometimes it is not meant to be and in my dad's case it was not.  He was in a coma the last week and had a stroke.  I believe that he is much better off.  We miss him, but have many happy memories of him and will keep him alive the best we can!   I hope you are well and thank you for your support when I emailed you!!
 
Thanks,

Shven...

So sorry to hear about your Dad's passing.  My Dad passed away on March 10th - seems his heart simply gave out. 

This forum has been a wonderful blessing for me, also.  Late nights spent reading posts and educating myself.  It was important to know what we were up against.

Take care,

Leslie***

Leslie, BIG (((HUG))) to you also. And yes it is important to know what your up against. This forum helped me through a very tough time to. It taught me when it was time to change gears.... From fighting the disease with all that we had to just enjoying each other with the time that he had left.
I know that it is a very hard time for you right now. Leslie and Shven both, when you are able to a bereavement class of some sort would probably help you through this part of the journey. With the long hard battle that people fight against this disease..... to end of passing away it leaves the loved ones emotionally devastated.

My thoughts and prayers are still with you. ......

To all of you who posted notes to me in response to my dad passing.  I am amazed at the warm and sincere responses you each sent!  I am going to do the best I can as we all do to get through this time.  Liver disease will always be something I will not forget.  I will be doing the Liver disease organization, Illinois chapter each year because I do believe that someone will have success with the research that continues to be done.  I know that there are successes.  Thank you and I will post and stay in touch at this forum!!!

Thanks,

Shven :-)

shven, I am sorry about your Dad's passing.  Although I don't know you personally,I do know about liver disease and about grief.  Please get support, even if you are feeling "tough"  One of the more surprising things about grief is that you might be feeling ok and then something reminds you of the person and you are flooded with pain.  So if that happens to you, it is normal.  In fact, most of the crazy feelings you have when someone dies are normal.

Shven! I haven't had any NDE's my self, but here is a great story for you. My mother was never a believer in life after death, and wasn't particularly religious. During her last months, she was bedridden, and could not talk much. Her caregivers, who do not know people in my family, reported different names of people who had died that she would call out and then mumble at, as if they were in the room. During this period, my cousin died unexpectedly, at the age of 40. No one told her about this, so as not to "upset" her. Afew days after he died, she started calling out his name and talking with him!!!! This knocked everyone's socks off!!!
Her own mother died when she was 11 and my mother talked with her alot during the last months, too. Right before my mother died, she said, loudly and distinctly, "Mom, I'm here!!!" What a beautiful death..... It was especially healing for us (my sister and I) because my mother had felt depressed and alone for most of her life.

  sad so sorry to hear about your dad, so many of us have lost family members to this horrible disease, its something you never forget but dansbrother is right you have to take a vacation from it or it will take over your mind. i lost my father to it in december 18 of 2006 and i still remember all the horrible things he went through before he passed. the good part is that is no longer suffering or in pain and he is with my mother. i come back to this forum almost everyday and read some just because i dont post doesnt mean i dont care. i have learned more about my fathers disease from here than any dr could have told me. its hard but you get through it because life will go on, like my father used to say even before he got really bad, when its your time to go its your time. please take care my thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.
