My husband and I took Jason in yesterday afternoon In the X-rays it show Jason had left side pneumonia and was admitted into the hospital. They did a bronchoscopy this evening and really cleaned out his lung. I couldn't believe what his lung looked like. I spent the night with him last night because he was unable to signal for the nurse if he needed one and for communication purposes. My husband was going to stay with him tonight but Jason passed away this evening after the bronchoscopy. I am doing alright for the most part. He was able to Skype his girls last Sunday and that raise his spirits and knowing his brother was coming out from Texas put a smile on his face. Unfortunately his brother did'n't make it in time to see his brother. I am at peace with this but this house seems so empty without him. I had 46 years with him and I thank the Lord for that. He is now with the Lord and I am glad for that also. He went very quietly which I am also thankful for. I celebrate his life and I know I will be with him in the end.

I lost my 44-yr-old son after caring for him at home for 19 months. i feel blessed that i could 'have him' during that time. i feel blessed that he went quietly and peacefully in his sleep. what is helping me now is to remember him from before his illness. (i also pretend that he's just on a trip, and my therapist is ok with that.)

Cherish every memory of happiness you had with him over his life and know that he appreciated everything you did no matter how hard any of it was xxx
