Sad Times

To all of my Spark Friends,

My wife's condition seriously deteriorated yesterday to the point that she had no vision and could not move herself from the bed to the wheelchair. She also passed out in the bed once. To top things off, she continues to suffer from another serious case of Peritonitis (internal infection). Since she has spent 2 out of the last 3 1/2 months in the hospital for the same infection, it appears her immune system is no longer working. At this point, we have brought Hospice in to take care of her. We will continue dialysis through this weekend to allow family and friends to visit, but we will stop the dialysis Monday morning. Thanks, everyone, for all the support during this difficult time. We also really appreciate all the thoughts and prayers.

I apologize if I can't answer each of your comments. I'm having a difficult time right now, and taking care of my wife these past few months has been draining. Although I knew this day would come, it doesn't make it any easier. It is hard to lose your best friend.

I will be back "Sparking" as soon as I can. Take care, everyone.
