    I'm so sorry. This news makes me so sad that I don't know what to say.

    May God continue to give you comfort.

    Quote from nursejoey05
    Well...as of 6:33am, it is all over. But listen to all that God was able to give me...
    1. I was there. They called at 11:30pm last night and told me to come quick. So I had all night to sit on his bed and comfort him.
    2. It was peaceful. I believe he went to Heaven. There was absolutely no sense of evil at all in the room.
    3. I didn't have to make a decision about the vent--his heart stopped.
    4. I didn't have to second guess myself about the CPR part. His HR and Sat just kept getting lower so I know that the risk of brain damage would have been immense if they had tried to revive him.
    I can't believe it's over. He has been such a fighter and almost super human for a long time. Thank you so much for your support and prayers.
    Dear Nurse Joey

    My heart is crying for all you have been through...
    Please know I am thinking of you and your dd
    Stay strong...

    Nursejoey, I don't even know you, yet I admire you for your strength and your love for your family. You are truly a special person, and I can tell that through the sincerity of your words throughout this thread. As your husband rests peacefully now in the arms of our dear Lord and you have done all and more that a loving wife should do, live proudly knowing this and knowing that you will see your husband again. :kiss

    Oh, no....

    Joey... I am so desperately sorry. I have kept and will continue to keep you in my prayers. There is some comfort in knowing that by God's grace you were able to be there, and see the peace that accompanied the transition.

    You will see him again.

    Safely Home

    I am home in Heaven, dear ones;
    Oh, so happy and bright!
    There is perfect joy and beauty
    In this everlasting light.
    All the pain and grief is over,
    Every restless tossing passed;
    I am now in peace forever,
    Safely home in heaven at last.
