    I can't seem to climb out of this hole and clear out my sons apartment.   No one understands what I am going through.  It means it is final.  I feel like I am poking around in my sons things without permission that are his and his alone and I need to ask him what to do with what.  Does this sound like I am nuts?  Well, it hurts.  I am hurting. I need more time that I don't have...

      I am left with "what did my son have to die for."  He was a good Christian man, full of fun, succeeded and worked  hard for what he had and what he did in life. So, why do good people have to suffer so and die young before they are finished creating the American Dream.   Why didn't the PCP pay attention to my sons complaints and me calling to back up my son?  My son would be alive ...

        I agree with checking the potassium level,  PLUS, the calcium and magnesium levels.   Both my son and I have had cramps; and, with with my son, it was calcium and potassium dificiency.  With me, it was calcium magnesium.

          What are the side effects of these trials at Duke?  And what were they that gave you 2 years you would not have had?

                Kathy, it is such a shock when something else takes someone close to your heart.  I am sorry this happened. I know how you are feeling.  My son died of something other than his brain tumor. Most people recover from aspirated pneumonia and go home to live.    They took him off the blood thinners and all meds 24 hours before he was scheduled for a Gtube.  He was greatly weakened...

                  I buried my son today with a good Christian funeral and burial.  The crowd of friends and family that came in honor of my sons life from N.C., N,H.,Texas, Arizona, Maine, and all over Massachusetts was unbelievable. What I had to do to bury my son was against what I know in nature.  I thank God for the patience of the Funeral Director (a good friend of my sons).  I could not bring m...

                      leslieluv29, Thank you.  At least your son in law died comfortably in his hime with all loved one surrounding him.  That is what my son wanted and needed.  Not the horror show of 4-5 ICU teams working on him.  Not the neglect of solid communication between loved ones, patients, and professionals.  I told the Dr. in between my sobs, "He could have stopped it before instead of pushing for the G...
