    Yesterday my husband had a spontaneous bleed into the back of his head. He will not be waking up from this. He is at the hospital on hospice care. There is no response from him at all. I am with him.

    I'll check in here as I'm able.

    Please, treasure your loved ones...they can be gone in an instant.

    I'm sorry Karen. Even though most of us haven't met you in person, we are here for you in our limited electronic capacity as much as we can be.

    Hoping for the best for you. Wishing for a miracle.

    So sorry to hear that.
    Spend as much time as you can while you can on the things that are truly important.
    We'll still be here later.
    My thoughts are with you.

    I'm very very sorry. You're all in my thoughts and prayers. Miracles can happen if they're meant to be! My husband has a severe traumatic brain injury that has left him paralyzed on one side no memory and a feeding tube. He know has been in a long term facility for the rest of his life. So I feel your pain. But I had to try and stay strong for our 3 yr old son. Oh Karen my heart breaks for you.
