He is in intensive care and very ill. He is only 20 years old and has tried to end his life. Please help us with your prayers....he has got to pull through this.
Please, NO need to respond to this post, all I need are your prayers pouring in for him from around the world.
God Bless,
Nancy

oh good god, hoping things turn out well, i can totally relate to this, when i was 15 i also tried to end my life, i really wanted to give up as life was s##t.

i recovered after spending 2 weeks in hospital, and i'm so glad i did as i would never have had my kids or my dog!

it always upsets me when i hear of these things as i know how low people feel when they do it, and its not a nice thing to go through for them nevermind their families!

Dear Nancy

I'm so sorry to hear of this dreadful situation. So heartbreaking when a youngster feels there is nothing to live for.

I really hope he will pull through, sending lots of positive, healing thoughts and prayers and for his family too.

I know that positive thoughts and prayers really do have an incredible power...

Sending our love and thoughts :flwr: :flwr:

Oh Dear Lord Nancy

May the power of God give mostly him the strength to pull through this and heal inside. Then may he pass on strength to the families having to

I will hold you all in my prayers and thoughts and please please keep us updated when you have a chance.

He had been in very poor shape. Needed surgeries, kidneys not functioning properly and he has coded 5 times...but he is still hanging on.I pray every night and send him healing energy. This is a roller coaster.
He is in an induced coma. He is strong but been thru such blows.
And today we found out my dad has lung cancer, advanced, not telling him yet. Life has thrown us such blows. I pray for my young cousin to survive and I pray for my dad not to suffer and my mom to be eased of these draining, draining days.

Please, please continue to pray for my cousin, he has gotta survive. His parents and family are working so hard to keep him with us.
Thank you, friends. It is a long hard road ahead of us.

Also praying for your cousin--he's young and strong. I just have a feeling he'll be alright...

All the best-

I was raised by my grandmother who just had surgery for lung cancer last year. In fact, I've always called her "mom" since she's the only mom I've ever known. So, while I can't really relate to what you are going through with you cousin's son, I certainly can relate to what you are going through with your father ...

For my mom, there were all sorts of complications ... she's 84 years old, has diabetes, pretty advanced emphysema ... a heart that is not as strong as it could be. It was about 6 months after they discovered her cancer before they finally decided to operate, and then only at her insistance. They'd been hesitant, because they did not think she'd survive the surgery.

I know your dad's situation is "advanced" ... so I'm sure things seem grim, but I wanted to let you know my mom did survive that surgery last year. And despite a very (Very!) grim warning to my twin sister and me that she might not survive the surgery. Well, I want to let you know that she has not only survived it but also appears to be cancer free one year later. Back in July we took her on a cruise to Bermuda to celebrate her recovery (and we're taking her on another vacation .. her dream vacation .. to Hawaii ... next year).

I know this tough time is tiring on your dad, but I just wanted to let you know that lung cancer can be overcome. I think the trips really helped keep my mom motivated to fight. Maybe for your dad, helping your family through this crisis will do the same.

I am thinking about you and I hope that things start to turn around for you after all the stress your family has been under for the last few days.

Good luck and my prayers and thoughts remain with you and your family, *ng*l

So sorry to hear your sad news, I have been through both situations as my dad died of lung cancer and a young lad who is a close relative took his own life.

My mum also suffered from severe depression and tried to end her own life but survived to see better days, I wish this also for this young lad.

My thoughts are with you.

nancy,
sorry to hear about this suffering.
i hope your cousin's strength wins out. It sounds like his doctors
know what they're doing. his spirit is certainly hanging on. with all the prayers and healing thoughts being sent his way and the strong pull of his family, i hope he will make it through.
I'm sorry about the sad and frightening news about your father. When my dad was given a cancer diagnosis, it was a depressing experience, to think about what might lie ahead and to want him not to suffer, and to imagine my life with him not here anymore.
Although very hard, this kind of experience can also be very spiritual.
It was nice to read Lani's story of hope. I hope your dad will have his own victories with the illness.

Dear, dear Nancy, and all of you.

I'm so sorry to hear about how much pain some people have to go though in live.

Nancy, I can not say that I know how you feel about whats going on, but I know how it feels when it's like very bad thing is happening on the same time. In onley one year time, my grandmother and grandfather, and my other grandfather died. That same year my grandpa (Yes, I know how lucky I am, to have known all these granparents) got canser and alzheimer.

Warm thought streaming from my, I send you my prayers. :hug:

I hope it's OK with you but I am going to ask my friends n the spiritual website that I belong to, to all send out some Reiki and spiritual healing to your cousin and your Dad and strength to you and your Mom. Most are mediums and healers so the energies should really flow.

I must have come back to this thread about 1,000 times now waiting to hear news. I have been praying for you and your family. Keep your fur babies close to you through this terrible time as they are a wonderful source of comfort. This really hits close to home for me and I know how hard it is for you. If you ever want to talk about anything, you're more than welcome to PM me and I'll give you a call. Take care of yourself and you are in my thoughts every day!! :flwr:

Hello Friends,
Things are taking a turn for the worse with my cousin's son. Please continue to pray for him as he had fought sooo hard up to this point his poor body has taken an unbearable beating.
My dad is going through torture. Asked again last night about all the pain in his chest, alzheimers can be soo cruel. We are still trying to get just the right schedule to keep him comfortable. I want mom to call hospice tomorrow---they are the experts as far as providing comfort for him. Finally got him to eat more than a bit of toast yesterday. Made him a milkhake and made him drink it all. Then he ate a little dinner for the first time in sooo long.
I know God has his own plan but I pray he spares my cousin's son and takes my dad from all of his pain. In a word, this sucks.
Thank GOD for my doggies. Last night we all spent time snuggling on Dad's bed and Dad LOVES this sooo much...he smiled at me and said,
"So when do we get the third dog????'...keeps saying these are the best dogs in the world and I know he is right!
Thank you sooo much everyone!
Love,
Nancy
Teddy and Katy, too!

Nancy,

SO sorry to hear about your cousin's son not doing well. Hopefully his youth will be on his side and he'll be able to pull through this. He's always in my thoughts and prayers, as are you and your family.

So now you must get another cavalier!! It's your father's orders!! hehe :)

I also must tell you that I think hospice is a wonderful program. When my grandpa passed away a few years ago he wanted to be at home and hospice was just wonderful at granting everything he wished. Also they were there to hug us and comfort us and explain what was happening. It really takes special people to be able to do that.

I am glad you're enjoying the moments you have with your father and your poochies together. It's great that you still take time out to cuddle with him, I am sure it means more to him than you know!

Take care of yourself Nancy and we are all here for you!! :flwr: :flwr:

Dogs are far more perceptive than us humans and you won't have needed to have told Teddy that Grandad has gone over, he will have known instinctively. Let him now be your comforter :flwr:

Your Dad will always be with you, watching over you all but no longer in any pain.

I'm sure he'll help your cousin's son too. I am a great believer in the powers that we have once we are in the spirit world.

Hi Nancy,

I said a prayer for you today
and know God must have heard.
I felt the answer in my heart
although he spoke no word!
I didn't ask for wealth or fame
(I knew you wouldn't mind).
I asked him to send treasures
of a far more lasting kind!
I asked that he be near you
at the start of each new day;
to grant you health and blessings
and friends to share your way!
I asked for happiness for you
in all things great and small.
But it was for his loving care
I prayed the most of all!

Hello Friends,
I believe my father is close at hand in helping my cousin's young son heal.
He is now using his kidneys and hopeful that dialysis will not be necessary soon. His liver is functioning. His feeding tube is working again, and the screens placed in his limbs seem to be working at preventing clots. He sat up on saturday for the first time in a chair. He is so strong---I think his optimal physical fitness has kept him alive. We are hoping that he will soon be able to go to rehab. He is on a vent part time now. It is a long road but I am praying for positve results...and when all is said and done I want to honor him and bring our family together as Dad would love, at our home here.
My heart has such a deep painful hole that I think I may have stuck the sadness so far down as I am too scared to let it out. I am selfish in my thoughts as I miss him terribly. Putting on my brave face for Mom as we go through each day....
I need to get busy here and update you very soon on my lovely Katy and dear, dear Teddy who sighs with sadness at the mere mention of "Pop-pop's" name.
Thank you, dear sweet people for your prayers...they are shining through!

Nancy :)

Nancy, hope you are doing OK. I am so sorry about your father. I am glad to hear that your cousin's son is doing better, and I hope and pray he continues to improve.

Our toy Poodle stayed with my dad the entire time that my dad was on home hospice a year ago this month.....Bailey laid on the bed with my dad till my dad passed away, Bailey had not left my dad's side, and when my dad passed away Bailey (who had been laying at my dad's side for nearly that entire 2 weeks my dad was ill) crept down to the foot of the bed and curled up near my dad's feet, Bailey knew. Animals bring so much comfort, my dad was so happy to be at home with his beloved Bailey.....much like your father and his dogs, it is some comfort to know that they had the love of their dogs with them all the time.

Hey Guys,
Have the day off and am enjoying the two little rascals here. I hope to get some photos and put them up today or tomorrow.
Thank God for my Teddy Boy...he listens to me and my sorrows.
I know I've gotta move on but it has been very difficult.

My poor poor cousing was all ready to be discharged...readdy to head out of the university hospital and move to re-hab hospital 3 weeks ago today when he suddenly had a major seizure and went into a coma and back onto a ventilator....he is now in intensive care AGAIN...out of the coma but liver damage is apparent. Will get another update this weekend but praying to Dad to give this boy back his young life.

I told his family when all is said and done and he is out of rehab we will have a big family celebration up here with everyone...we need to be happy again.

Katy is just loving playing with Tedster and he enjoys it too! Nightly games of chase and keep away keep Mom and me totally entertained.

Thanks guys, You all mean alot to me. I feel your healing energy.
Nancy
Teddy and Katydid :flwr:

My cousin's son is finally back in NJ in an excellent re-hab facility.
It truly is a miracle that I know my Dad was part of. My young cousin has lost some toes but BIG DEAL!!! He is alive! He has a lllllong rehab but his mind is in tact and he is a shadow of his former athletic self. He lost 1/3 o fhis body weight. Imagine his mom finally able to sleep in her own bed at night! It is a very bitter-sweet time in our lives dealing with losing my hero but my young cousin is alive.
Thank you ALL soooo much. I do know you have helped my cousin survive.
Happy Christmas to all of you :flwr: !

My prayer is that your young cousin come to realize that each day is an opportunity for change, and for things to change. The circumstances we see ourselves in today need not be our tomorrow. God Bless him and keep him safe until his pain eases and he can find the joy in life again.

Amen

nancy, thank you for the update. how good to hear of this wonderful progress in this terrible ordeal for your cousin and all of you. i'm glad he is in good hands at the rehab and that his mom can sleep at home again--it's been so long that he was in the hospital. your dad has been a strong presence throughout. it takes a long long time for the pain of such a loss to ease, but your dad also gave you what you need to get through it all, with a little help from Teddy :) . And somewhere along the way you acquired whatever it was that caused you to pull in so much love and support for your cousin as well.

Just now reading this. I'm so sorry for all the difficulties you and your family have gone through recently! I hope your cousin pulls out again and can be healthy very soon. The liver has incredible regenerative capacities, so hopefully with time it will be healthy again. sending thoughts your way!

Nancy I am so sorry to hear about your Dad passing away. Glad to hear your cousin is doing better. Definitely sounds like Dad decided it was time to go as he could help your cousin better by being on the other side.

Looking forward to hearing about your big family get together at Christmas. :hug:
