And so it goes

Ann sent out an email this morning to about a dozen people including me saying that she and her son and daughter-in-law have agreed with the doctor's assessment that Ron's 10% recovery is likely to be the best he's going to do. They are putting him on comfort care. "He will be in no pain and pass in a couple of days." According to her note, this decision was made yesterday before the whole tv sound issue. Friday, the 13th.

The note was cogently and thoughtfully written with only the slightest hint that this was probably only the 3rd email she'd ever sent in her life. It was certainly worth the effort to let us all know that way. One of the people on the list (not me) will, I'm sure, organize the rest to fill in temporary support for her and hopefully my dire predictions for how she'll manage are just way off the mark.

As weird as this may sound, I feel like I know Ann & Ron through you - if you can somehow transfer good thoughts and wishes and strength from me to Ann - please do.

Let her know that there are many who care and wish for her to have the strength to get through a very, very hard situation, but that we also believe that she can do it.

Or just a big honking random internet hug.

I don't even know Ann and I'm really sad to hear this news.
