My best friend's wife has been in the hospital for almost 7 months suffering from diabetes and other related illnesses.

She was put into a medically induced coma about a week ago after she passed and they brought her back. A brain scan showed no activity yesterday and they got her into hospice about midnight last night. She passed about 2 hours later.

Hospice is a Godsend. It takes the burden of the spouse having to make the decision of when all hope is gone and it's time to pull the plug. I'm actually glad it happened this way for him. I feared he couldn't have lived with the decision if he had to make it.

((((Mary))) Gods speed to you

RIP Mary.

You're a really good friend WHG...I'm sure your friend is eternally grateful to have you with him through this painful journey.

I'm so sorry for your loss.

I am so sorry. Something similar happened recently with my sisters husband. He was in a coma with no hope of a meaningful recovery. I was with my sister when they pulled the plug and he passed after 2 hours. It is heartbreaking. I hope you have the strength to support your best friend whether it's listening, helping him to eat meals, or planning the memorial.

I'm very sorry to hear this WHG. MY thoughts are with you and your friend.

I'm gonna show him this thread. He might like to see the sympathy and empathy from complete strangers. Probably not now--probably in a few days. Don't know if it will help him or not--but it's nice to know that complete strangers care.

Thanks guys.

I am so sorry. What an awful loss. Sending prayers and love to both you and your dear friend.

Maybe transferring her to hospice gave her permission to let go... Permission to give up the fight... Maybe it was the last gift of love he could give her...

The weather here in Michigan reflects your loss today.

I can't say enough good things about hospice. So glad your friend had that support during such a terrible time.

Keeping him, his family, and you in my thoughts.
