On Labor Day, Susie became unresponsive so we brought her to the hospital. After several blood tests and consultations with doctors, the final conclusion was that, unfortunately, Susie is not going to get any better. There are just too many battles going on in her body to handle all at once.
Her mom, Elaine, said it better that I ever could with her comment made on Facebook this morning:
“Susie is in hospital surrounded by immediate family. She is doing the work it takes – quietly, bravely, painlessly – to finish her life and let it go. We are beside her, singing, telling stories, kissing her and stroking her softly in total support of her decision and endeavor. She is so loved.”
Before, we have asked for your thoughts and prayers to give Susie strength – which you have given in amazing fashion. We now ask that you continue to do so for the sake of her comfort and peace.
