|Comment||Dear Margot: Thank you very much for your response and no worry about the delay, I understand how crazy this life can be and computer issues are usually very untimely. This has been something that has haunted both myself and my daughter who was 17 at the time of his passing (June 2010) and I was seeking some closure for both of us. We both reacted emotionally to the tears and felt that in that moment it was a great mistake to have agreed to the removal of life support and needless to say I have been struggling with some guilt over that decision. Your answer has helped to confirm that he would not have been aware and the tears were merely bodily fluids. At this time I trust that he's living in Paradise. Thank you again for your informative and kind response. Jan|
I nursed my own Mother and Grandmother at home when they were dying so I have personal experience with the emotions involved. I have also spent the last 20 years as a Registered Nurse caring for The Elderly and Terminally Ill and it has brought me great satisfaction. I am willing to answer any questions I can.
