I feel like I'm on a ship that's sinking. He left 9/22/14. I think I should be better than this. It's unbelievable, so wrong. It makes me think, where is God in all this? I need to stay strong. He's right (think positive) here with me and wishes I could understand why it needed to go this way. Lord keep me strong, Candace is with him, they're ok.
I am sorry for the loss of your lil' brother too (what happened to him too).
Jannelle, I'm so sorry.
Janet, The hospital needs to be accountable for that! My lil' brother was given nano units instead of micros. They gave him WAY to much, seconds later he told his wife, "check the medicine, something's wrong". He then had a heart attack and left us all!!! That was 9/22/14. It hurts EVERYDAY! We didn't see each other that often anymore but when he was told he was dying. I made plans to see him the following Wednesday. Sadly, he passed on Monday!!! As kids we were very close and I even lived with his family for a few months while I was recuperating from an accident. I think about him numerous times a day. I'm holding a pic of him, I hug it. He's plays guitar, a Les Paul; he has a Fender Straticaster too. Doug's a Respiratory Therapist, his wife is a nurse and their daughter's going to college to be a doctor. She told me he won't be able to walk her down the aisle when she gets married. SO SAD! It hurts!!!Oooooh My Dougie!!!!! I LOVE you Doug, so very much!!!
Sorry for your lost Susan. My mother passed away in 1999 from complications of Scleroderma. It seems just like yesterday. I pray that GOD gives you peace and understanding!
Thank you Karen. I really appreciate your words of wisdom.
I wish you the best in your efforts with the nursing home. I also hope you find peace and know that I firmly believe your brother rests in heaven.
Although it has been more than two weeks since losing my oldest brother, I think about (after hearing/learning later) how the nursing home treated him and how I wanted/needed to be there to prevent that. Right now, my family is fighting for him because that facility needs to be held accountable for his lack of care. "JUSTICE FOR ANT!"
I just lost my oldest brother on Tuesday, March 21, 2017. I could not be at his wake nor funeral because it was in Cleveland, Ohio and I was hospitalized in Astoria, NY.
I just read that post you did elyse, "missing my brother, FOREVER", with a heavy heart I agree implicitly.
