Sad news again

My dearest friend Amy, had a death in her family yesterday. Her brother, Adam, passed away. He had had a benign brain tumor for the past 9 years. It was too risky to operate on, so they just checked it every 6 months to make sure it wasn't getting any bigger. He had to deal with daily seizures, even on medication, because of the tumor. Last thursday, he had a terrible migraine. He went into the ER and it all went downhill from there. They found out that the tumor had grown (a LOT) and turned cancerous. He ended up going into a coma, having 2 strokes, emergency brain surgery, on full life support, etc. So after doing testing to see if there was any brain activity, they took him off life support. Anyways, I just felt I needed to post this. Adam was great. He was always so kind to me and fun to be around. Granted, Amy, I wasn't his sister. =) But being around her brothers always made me with I would have had older brothers. I just saw him last week and we were joking around and talking. I'm so sad for the family's loss, but I'm so relieved he doesn't have to deal with this anymore. He's at peace now. We'll miss you, Adam.

What sad news. I'm glad he's with our Heavenly Father now and not suffering anymore.

how sad. I am sorry you have been dealing with so many people passing away. I have been there and done that if you need anything. By the way, how come we never hang out? We really need to play more.
