I will continue to hope, while there is even the merest vestige of something to cling on to.

One thing I can't get out of my head, is that he posted the video to The Maker Makes yesterday morning on his Facebook page.  He said it was "heavy on his mind" yesterday morning.  Why did he post that?  ???  :'(

I wonder that too, Eric.  I think we know things sometimes and only make the connections in retrospect.

TMI - last night at 3 am I awoke and vomited.  (Truth - because I told Ronny about it earlier).  I thought it was anxiety and something I ate, but now I'm not so sure.

And there have been several nights of insomnia for no good reason where I find out that Mom is ill come morning.

Gosh, you look at all the user names logged onto this thread, and it's like keeping vigil.  :(

It really is.

When a local Philadelphia opera singer named Angel Oramos passed away last month, his facebook page was flooded with hundreds of prayers, personal stories, pics, condolences to his family, etc. It went on for days. I think its great that we can use the technology to stay connected when it matters the most.

I was just telling Shasta that last night after I went to bed, I had this overwhelming feeling of dread, as if something terrible was about to happen. And I thought it was about my Dad. I thought maybe I was going to lose him. And I couldn't shake it off. I couldn't go to sleep. But now I'm wondering if maybe it was about Rich. :-\

You're right, Milo.  That is a blessing.  I can't imagine being here 'alone'.

I love you.  And I'm proud of you, the way you care for your father, and countless other reasons.  You're a strong man.

I have to say that I feel the same cause there still is something to cling on to. Miracles can and do happen. While Rich is still with us, there is that hope and for now I will follow that.

Exactly what I said earlier to Lynne.

I'm praying. And I DON'T do that.
