    Glad to hear the family has come together, instead of fighting, and yes indeed, I have heard of having a really good day or a couple of hours right before they get ready to go home. I am Catholic so I believe in life after death and the next world. I will keep ya'll in my prayers and will pray for a for a peaceful and beautiful passing for your MIL

    We left when a couple of the grand kids came in.

    Have you ever heard about the good day thing? If so, I believe it. Just got a call. After we left her, her blood pressure and oxygen levels dropped, and she is more or less in a coma. Doctor has been in and he says she probably won't make the night.

    Not uncommon, it's like they are getting ready to leave and they do one last rally to help the family deal with the end. My mom did that just before she passed. After I told her it was ok to go. She had a brain tumor that was literally taking over the blood supply that was supposed to be feeding the brain.

    Two older brothers are making the arrangements and we are doing the phone calls.
    I love speaker phones!!! At times we've had the land line and both cell phones going. We've had people talking to other people and all on phones. We actually had some good conversations as everyone was talking about old times. I've heard most of the stories (or lived them) so I'm doing a lot of listening, but it did the heart good to hear as they laughed.

    jj2, ((((hugs)))) I think watching someone you love suffer is even harder than letting them go. Praying for peace and comfort for you and the entire family.
