For sisl


sisl,

I don't have the time to look for that post I wrote the other day. Suffice to say, offline priorities are taking precedence for me, with my brother-in-law in ICU right now and likely not going to survive.

I'm not seeking sympathy nor words of kindness; it's a simple, unavoidable, yet painful fact of life. Nevertheless, I apologise unreservedly for what I wrote about you. Sometimes the reflective moments allow us to consider how we treat one another.

I am not in charge of what you write/think; I can only do that for myself, and seeing Mike hooked up to all manner of equipment keeping him alive was a salutary reminder for me.

Anyway, I didn't want to leave this unwritten.


Peace.

I know this is meant for sisl, but thanks for showing the rest of us what a centered human being actually looks like. I'm not quite there yet, but I'll keep trying. emoticon

Thanks Loch, you have my sympathy and Best Wishes.

We all need to remember that the heat of battle need not consume us. These are only pixels on a very remote corner of the internet.

Best Wishes to ALL here in the room.

Re: For sisl


Thanks, all. My brother-in-law passed peacefully, after the doctors said there was nothing more they could do.

I thought about sending sisl a PM, but I thought it was important to make an apology in public since, after all, I've been an asshole in public.

It was one hell of a perspective moment for me, and something I need to bear in mind next time I'm taking !@#$ too seriously, or using it as some sort of catharsis, which isn't warranted against anyone.

Thanks, stone. He ended up with multiple organ failure from septic shock, so it was a matter of gathering the family around him once the doctors said nothing more could be done.

My wife held his hand while she sang "Danny Boy" to him, and it was as peaceful a death as I could ever wish for anyone.

A year ago this month I lost a very dear member of my family the exact same way. The CO2 builds up inside them and they just pass as peacefully as one could hope for. My condolences, Loch.
