I have not beeen here for about 3 weeks. We went to Calif to see the girls and granddaughters Had a wonderful time. Then on to Parowan, Utah to see youngest son(35 yrs old) and grandsons, 14 and 16. Had a wonderful time there also. But, the hardest thing I have ever done in my life was saying goodbye to my son, knowing I may never see him again. Brian has an inoperable brain tumor. He has lived past the time given by drs. He could be gone tomorrow, next week, next month. We just don't know when it will happen but it will. I have been back about 5 days now but to depressed to post. I'm finding little things, pettiness and complaining are getting on my nerves, therefore have not made comments on alot of the posts. I think I will just "lurk" for awhile. You all are still the greastes family out there. Carol

I am so sorry! This will most likely be the hardest thing you will ever have to deal in your lifetime. My God give you the strength to get through all of this. There is not a single thing that any of us can say that will make you feel any better. The strength must come from God. Believe me He will get you through all of this and He will keep you in His loving hands until you will be together again. Remember that you are not alone. You have your family and friends to love you and to be there for you and you also have friends right here. The Lord will give you all of the help you ask for and believe me, He will see you through the bad times!

Carol, this just made my heart ache when I read it. We never know how blessed we are until we stop and think about the serious issues that are being faced by someone every day. May God hold you while you shed tears of sorrow. May He bring you peace in the days to come and may you know how much you are loved. I also pray for Brian and the rest of the family as you find a way to say goodbye for now. You can talk to us here when you need to and can. I will be watching for your posts. Sending you warm hugs.

Your son's situation can't help but be on your mind all the time. I go on the notion that there is hope. So I'm sending you hope, blessings, and prayers.

Carol you do what is the best for you. Many times I just lurked for a while because...... and then something draws me back. In light of what is going on in your life other little problems petty or not just don't seem worth reading or answering. But.....when you need support please come back. In the meantime I am praying for your son, you and your family. Hugs Angie

Carol, I wished that we would have known that you hand visited Parowan - even though it is still a distance from Riverdale - we might have been able to met somewhere in the middle. Hehehe! I am so sorry - that you had to say goodbye to your dear son - that is never an easy thing to do - the bless you have - is that you have had him this long and that you got to visit with him. I know that doesn't make it any easier, for sure. Nor does the difficult things going on here, either - but please post when you can and lurk all you want, dear. We will be praying for you and will be here - if you need us. Unconditional Love, Shirlene

Carol - a Big Aussie Hug is wending its way to you right now. From experience, I know how hard it is to be brave sometimes. Just to let you know that my thoughts of comfort are with you.
