Thank you Joy.

I communicate via pc, as you can see and use a chart that I designed for when I lay down. I still have some movement in my neck .
the bi-pap is not a life support machine. Many people use it to help with sleeping. Which is the reason I first got it, through a sleep clinic. It has assisted my breathing to help my sleeping disorder. I have chosen no life supports. However I did have a G tube installed way before I needed it because of my difficulties swallowing pills. my whole life I couldn't get pills down my throat. the g-tube was a god send for me. Rita keeps my nutrition levels correct And properly hydrated throughout my illness. I am now on a morphine pump since Monday passed. But Rita wants me to take it slowly as I need it. She wants me to hang on a little longer. As long as I'm kept comfortable, I will hang on as long as i can. I love my family very much and cry each time I think of them.
