    Wow, that's so intense. What an amazing and humbling experience. I remember when my first baby was born, marveling at how the central nervous system responses of infants resemble the degenerative nervous system responses of elders. Life truly is an arc. I am so glad that your uncle is getting to die with dignity at home, and surrounded by family. I have missed your posts, hopefully you will be coming back to your blog after your work there is done. I hope that his transition to the next place goes smoothly and peacefully. Will be thinking of you.

    Thanks so much, Danielle. I hope to resume more regular posting as soon as possible.

    This is beautiful Naomi.


    Oh, Naomi, what a touching piece. I love that you sang "Tonight you belong to me" -- that song is stuck in my head now. I can only hope that my departure is as love-filled and peaceful.
    Thinking of you!


    This was beautiful. You are awesome.

    My dad died the exact same way, of the exact same thing, exactly 6 years ago. Reading this 6 years and 1 day later brings it all back like it was yesterday. I am very sorry for your loss and thank you for sharing. It truly is one of the hardest, most present experiences of my life. Good luck with the next few days.

    Thank you so much, Debbie, Monica, Betsy and Jason. I really appreciate your support.

    @Jason- I'm so glad that I inspired you to post about your Dad, although I hope bringing it this close hasn't been too difficult for you. Thank you, again.
