Dear Alicia,  Scott was 37 when he left me. He left me on March 5. 2008.  I don't log on this as much as I did at first.  I have learned to accept that Scott lives on in the after life and he waits for me. Scott's birthday is coming up on July 29 he will turn 41. It's kinda of strange but our last conversation was about death.  He was at my house, Scott had his own home and I don't even know how the subject got started but he was talking about death and I remember telling him hey I go first that's the way it's suppose to be.  And he said I don't want to die but if I do Oh Well.  That was our last face to face talk.  The next time I saw Scott was in the hospital and he was gone from me.  The last thing on earth I thought would happen to me was to lose him. I was seventeen when I gave birth to him and I had him with me for thirtyseven years.  Scott is special, strong, kind and he worked hard for the things he wanted.  His home and truck, his life. You can find books on the after life anywhere.  I live in Louisville and I sometimes go to the Book Atic on Preston Street.  But I don't buy them any longer because I have plenty. Some by John Edward and Slyvia Brown who talks about the after life.  I found comfort and peace in these books. Maybe you will too.

Alicia,

thank you for the kind thoughts and prayers. I actually did pretty good on Bobbys birthday. I spent the day with my best friend. She recently moved here from Portland to help me with Bobbys son he is 3 1/2 and the light of my life. When I am feeling the worst I try so hard to remember that Bobby does not want me to be sad. I have read several books and have had some spiritual readings but by far the book that gave me the most comfort is Heavan is for real. It isn't a very long book I read it in 2 hrs. and have given it to two of my friends that have lost children and they loved it also. Bought mine at Walmart. I hope you can get it . Let me know, I will keep you in my prayers also. Michelle

Alica, Sorry, I dont think I replied to you. I have had dreams of her, when young and older and weird things would happen that we would associate with her as signs. A song on the radio, a butterfly, a dragon fly, birds in our yard or at the cemetery. (turkeys, so that was odd, our yard we get them all the time, but the one day at the cemetery, was strange). We had a balloon fly away on Valentines day, like it was to be released up to her, and not tied down. We did get another one. My mominlaw had a visit while sleeping. And she would never lie, lol. A few friends told stories of her coming and talking to them. One was from a Medium or pshychic. I have found pieces of her hair during the first few months on the floor, that I wrapped on a toothpic, (I do strange things). My husband has had dreams too and heard songs also on his way to work. The wind would blow and make the chimes sound at the cemetery. Just little things. I dont know how to prove anything, but it makes you feel good when you try to connect it to the person or think they made it happen.

Its been 33 mnths for us, and I havent noticed as much as I used to. The few that have had readings have posted here on this site. Some have stories under the message board, Messages from the other side. I have read a lot of books on death, NDE, talking to those we lost, etc. They all give us hope that they are around us along with what we believe religiously and in our hearts. As much as all this helps for the moment you are in it, when you get past it, you realize they are still not here. So its the old saying, One step forward, two steps back. I have not been on here much lately. I feel bad. I do come back and read all the posts tho. We are all in it at different stages, and I dont think anyone can say it is any easier. I find just talking about my child, remembering her with family or friends on here, keeps her alive in our hearts. I will never stop missing her as you too will Jesse. hugs

Hi Alicia,  It sounds like your son had what my son had....very severe pneumonia.  My son's doctor ignored his symptoms so, by the time he went back to her (3 days later), it was too late.  He was rushed to the hospital and diagnosed with Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome, a deadly condition due to pneumonia not being treated.  We went to 5 different top lawyers in Boston...none would take his case because they said doctors have so many laws to protect them that it's virtually impossible to sue them and win.  I don't care about suing....I want her license to practice medicine taken away, but that won't happen.  We wrote a formal Letter of Complaint to the Board of Medicine, and after many months we received notice that our complaint will be a matter of record in her file. Big deal - not enough punishment for taking a life.

Your son was probably put into a medically induced coma so that his body could rest and get better.  At least, that's what they told us when Todd was put into a medically induced coma to "rest and get better".  But his organs began failing, he developed an infection that wouldn't respond to any antibiotics, and he died 5 days later.  We're still in shock. 

My daughter told me of a young woman in her church who also went to the hospital not feeling well with a cough and cold, was diagnosed with pneumonia and died the next day.  She was married with 3 children; her husband and children are devastated - I guess it happens to other people too, but it HURTS SO MUCH!  WHY...we keep asking...why?  He was such a good person, never harmed a fly.  Didn't smoke or drink...just went to work, helped his friends and family and animals in need too.  Very intelligent, kind and funny too. 

Heartbroken,

Janet

Alicia, I hope today has been a better day for you. It's been a hard day for me; I don't understand how you can seem to be doing a little better for some time and then it's like things go backwards again and you find yourself in this state of despair once more. I'm glad you're reading the Bible - I know it isn't that easy to understand on your own, especially the King James Version. If you can get a Living Bible or New International Version, it does help and having a good devotional or book that deals with grief is good. I've read a few books and I read devotionals that refer to scripture too. I especially enjoy reading "Jesus Calling", which is a daily devotional. Be careful of those coming to talk with you.... read John 14:6 - Jesus tells us that no one comes to the Father except through him.  If anyone tells you that Jesus is just a good man, but not the son of God, stay away from them. Please go to this website: http://www.forestparkchurch.com, it's my son's church (Forest Park Church in Elizabeth City, NC). Their sermons are online and this is where my son's faith began to grow over the past 2 years. Just click on "messages" and I think you will enjoy what you see and hear - the pastor's messages are easy to understand. The people of that church are real - they don't care what you wear, how you wear your hair or how many tattoos you have.... they have genuine love for all people and I'm so grateful my son and his wife were led there. We can email each other if you like and I can share more scripture with you. You asked if my son had children - he did not; he was married for 6 1/2 years but they didn't feel they were ready. I think they were getting there though... I'm praying for you, Alicia. We will all help each other through this...

Gluten is mostly a wheat intolerance but it is in a lot of other stuff especially as a food additive.

Some people that have it have minimal symptoms like indigestion, maybe skin issues but the intestines slowly get scar tissue building up and lose their ability to process food just like with diabetes and sugar. You digestive system is serious.

There are websites on it,

Take care,

Bonnie

Okay they knew his liver failed. He could have had any kind of hepatitis.

Although an ex boyfriend of mine died of liver failure shortly after being diagnosed with Celiac disease. He had a gluten intolerance that he did not know about. This made his digestive system fail and also effected his liver.

It is hard to say I am not a doctor but after that I went on a gluten free diet. My skin and digestion has improved but I have never been tested for allergies.

Take care,

Bonnie

Alicia, thank you for taking the time to go to Charlie's website. He was a good son and so wise for his age - he was 31. His birthday is coming fast - July 2, and I'm getting pretty sad knowing it's coming. I'm so sorry about what happened to your son, Jesse. I know you remember that so vividly and I'm sure it keeps playing over and over in your mind. I don't think we'll ever forget those moments of horror. Please find peace in knowing your son was a Christian. You will see him again if you believe that Jesus Christ is the son of God and he took all of our sins upon him and died on the cross so we can have eternal life. You see, God saw that we could never be good enough, we could never keep the law, so he gave his only son to die on the cross so that anyone who believes can have eternal life - that's what our sons now have...  you probably know the scripture, John 3:16, but if not please read it. I have quoted it so many times without blinking an eye. As soon as I lost my son, it hit me how much God really loves us for there is no greater sacrifice than his own son. He knows our pain, Alicia. He has felt this pain himself and he sees our tears and knows how our hearts break. I want to see my son again, so I cling to God's promise that my Charlie now has eternal life and I want to go to heaven now more than ever. My youngest son doesn't really talk about it much either, but he did talk to his dad recently and said it's because he can't handle it - he gets too emotional and I think he feels he has to be strong for us. He is a Christian though and he too has peace in knowing where Charlie is - we just miss him so much in this life. I hope these are comforting words for you. I hurt very much, but I do get comfort in God's promise to us and I couldn't make it a day without it. May God bless and strengthen all of us to take one step at a time, day by day.

Hugs to you,

Cathy ~ Charlie's Mom    http://www.333technologies.com/

Alicia,

I am not sure about mediums. I would never pay one or go to one about any loved one. They are trying to make money.

I do believe that our loved ones can come to us in dreams and communicate with us as I have had many dreams of loved ones that have passed not just my child.

I believe that God allows certain amount of communication between those on this side of the veil and the other. I read a book by Betty Eadie, Embraced by the light. She has a website you can google. She has done extensive research on the other side working with people who had dying relatives in hospital and also writes her own near death experience.

Your son was letting you know his spirit lives. There is work and lessons on the other side. I do not know everything but that much has been intuited by me and also I have read from others that concur.

I would read scripture not consult a medium although it may be tempting. I would pray to God for my own personal revelation.

I am sure you will have some.

Hugs,

Bonnie

So let me get this straight are you saying the time that he passed before you knew it he came to you in a dream dressed like an angel with a sad feeling overcoming you like there was nothing he could do?

By the way if he had an allergic reaction to the tylenol he could have gone into anaphylactic Shock and died. They should  have at leas told you the cause of death. That is the trouble with the laws.. I do not understand why they did not tell you what the cause of death was.

Thank you. I am sorry about your son too. What kind of sign did you get from him?

I know that in the spirit world things are different. He most likely understands what happened and why he was taken.

I have had plenty of dreams both bad and good with my Allison in them. She was a very good daughter. I couldn't have asked for a better one. She was honor role, advanced studies HS diploma, she volunteered to help the disabled kids, she volunteered on environmental issues. She had played piano and clarinet. She loved to dance and had taken gymnastics which she loved. She was a good sister too. Her sister and brother really miss her and can't understand this. We are all still trying to process this nightmare of a loss.

It has not been a year yet. I can see it is going to take time.

Prayers.

Bonnie

Alicia,

Sounds like there is some kind of communication problem. What did the toxicology report say? Was he an organ donor?

I think lawyers do not want to get in cases that they might lose. This is because if you go against a corporation they usually have a team of lawyers and it could drag on. Then you could be charged their legal fees. The lawyers you talk to want you to do the work of finding a clear and convincing case. You have to get the proof. Get the toxicology reports and medical examiner records. Kind of hard to go against these people. What did they say. I know you want justice. I know it is not fair. Same thing in my case. Many lawyers do not want to take chances. It is a gamble.

All I can say is pray for guidance. Pray his spirit is at peace.

Sorry for your loss. I will tell you the statute in my state for filing a claim on this type of thing is two years. You better check your state laws. You say he was wrongfully treated and died in the hospital in 2009. It may be too late to file. I do not know.

Bonnie

Alicia,

I'm sorry for the loss of your son, Jesse.  I hope you can find some peace on this site.  It has helped to have others that truly know what I'm talking about to talk to.
