hey, so as you all might know (and empathize) i have been on an emotional rollercoaster with this ibs thing... today was a good day, i crapped once and thought "wow, this is what life feels like!"  i did yoga this morning, ran this evening, baked... participated in life...because i was not thinking about the toilet--well i thought about it, wondering why today, why do i feel calm today? 
after i ran, i walked in the front door and my husband was ghost white-- his cousin had OD last night, she was brain dead and his uncle was now faced with the decision of 'pulling the plug'.  our lives have been changed before very suddenly-- so we understand the meaning of 'life changes in an instant'.  (we had an arson two years ago and were 'displaced' in an instant)  but what do you say in these cases?  and how is it that one person's bad/low/down day could literaly leave them so hopeless that they think there is nothing... how come you can understand someone else' lonliness so well, so clearly, but still not be capable of the same amount of damage?
i really want everyone to know that they are important, and things change in mere moments--including, in mere moments great things happen...  create a great day, thanks for reading this far...
all the best.  and have fun.
for those who need a lighter thought:  What is big, red, and eats rocks?
(a big red rock-eater of course!!)
what would you attempt to do if you knew you could not fail?

Bunny I am so sorry for you and your family's struggle. What a terrible ordeal to go through and an agonizing decision to have to be made.
My thoughts are with you and your family.

I'm so sorry about what your family is going through. You and your husband just be there for each other through these trying times. This is a good reminder of how dear our lives are and that we need to live each and every day to the fullest. I will keep you and yours in my thoughts. Take care.
Hugs, Des

Bunny, I'm so sorry about this and hope everyone is pulling through as best as possible.  A thousand bravos to you, though, for having such a good head on your shoulders...your family is lucky to have you around.
