    CALS Roll Call Continued

    Hi folks - popping in to say hello. I think my grief (although emotionally I'm doing okay) has affected my immune system...I've had a bad cold for 3 weeks now and there seems to be no sign of letting up. I don't know if it is one long cold or 3+ viruses back-to-back, but either way I'm super...

    My PALS is now in heaven

    Thank you Wish. Yes, there are feelings of positivity and hope in between the waves of grief and guilt, thankfully. So strange that when I’m the midst of the beast I told myself that I should be proud of what I was able to handle and that I wouldn’t let myself feel any guilt when it was all o rt...

    My PALS is now in heaven

    Thank you Sooner! You are right, no one should have gone what we or our PALS went through. I’m usually very emotionally even/steady but I’m finding these waves of grief and every day seems to be different...throws me off a bit. Did you go through any bereavement counselling? Wondering if it...

    My PALS is now in heaven

    Thank you for all you kind words and condolences. It has been almost a month and it feels like a lot of time has past and at the same time so fresh like it was yesterday. I know a month isn’t a long time. I found Christmas very hard and night time in general more difficult some nights, not all...

    The girl of my dreams

    Very sorry for your huge loss Ernie. Wishing you strength during this time. You were an amazing CALS and she was lucky to have you take such good care of her. Take care of yourself now and rest lots if you can. It is hard to slow down after sometimes.

    CALS Roll Call Continued

    Ernie - my PALS was hot all the time the last month before he got his wings. Couldn't keep the room cool enough for him. Even if his legs and arms were cool, his trunk was warm and he was uncomfortably hot. Prior to this last month he wasn't like this...so maybe this does mean a biological...

    Brian gained his angel wings

    I’m very sorry for your loss. You have done so amazingly for your Brian and for so long. I hope you are doing okay and feel peace. Also, hope you get rest since you have been going to hard for so long, it is likely difficult to slow down and recognize your new freedom and calm. I’m with you...

    My PALS is now in heaven

    My love is gone. I feel numb and lost even though I thought I was prepared for this. He hung on so so long, I don’t know how, but he did. This journey has forever changed me and my family. The little ones seem to be coping okay so far (way more clingy though), and I am trying to find a new...
