FIL update — The Bump
Parenting after 35

FIL update

This is his 3rd stroke & it was massive. It damaged his whole left side of brain. He has been unresponsive since the ambulance took him. Hasn't even opened his eyes. They took him off sedation. He has a machine that kicks in to help him breath every time he stops, which is often. So basically now we have to make a desicion. I know his mom wouldn't want him to live on a machine but so far she keeps saying to him to wake up & she talks to him about Sienna thinking if he hears her name he'll wake up. It's so sad.

Yesterday when I went with DH, I asked him for a few minutes with FIL & I thanked him for raising such a wonderful son, thanked him for everything that he's done for me, told him how much we love him & that even though I want him to live I don't want him to live like that. I told him I know when he passes that he will be watching over Sienna always, that he'll be her gaurdian angel. I truly believe he will as she was what he looked forward to every day.

Thank you all for listening & for your kind words & thoughts.

  • Oh, I am so sorry. Your words to him made me cry. It was a beautiful thing to say to him and I am sure he heard you and is aware of how you feel about him. I am sure Sienna will have him to look over her always.

  • I'm so sorry.  I know your FIL heard you.  One of the hardest - but also loving - things we can do is let go.  And you have done it with such class.  I'm sure it was very difficult for you - but what a blessing that you've been able to have that opportunity to share your feelings with him.  HUGS to you and your family.

  • I'm so sorry to hear that.  I'm welling up over here, thinking about your sweet good-bye.  It is never ever easy, but can be the kindest thing to do, and I truly believe that it will help your FIL let go and move on to a better place knowing that he has your blessing and that you are all ok.  I wish you, your DH and his family peace as these tough decisions are made.
  • I'm so sorry to hear this. My thoughts are with you and your family now.
