Today we bring Scott home



bird 1



I just wanted to let those of you who have been so supportive that we are taking Scott home today via Hospice. About a week or so ago he was starting to throw clots everywhere in his poor pain racked body and so he was taken out of rehab and brought to the hospital. To make a long painful story short, they talked him into trying the chemo and three days later he is going home to die. We had truly thought we had a little more time, but the chemo just devastated his immune system. I pray we can get him home……thank you to everyone who reached out with each of their own stories and prayers…..right now all of the family is in “shock” mode and getting thru this…..please pray that God takes him home soon…..we will miss him so much!

Hmmm, God's plan does boggle me. I have not been right in the "faith" department since my Mom died in Dec. of 2009. She was 69 and her death seemed so senseless to me. I am so sorry to here about Scott, I read a previous post about him and it is tragic to be facing this with such a good friend. Hang on to each other for support, and spend as much time with him as you can. Hugs, Cathy

Sandy what dear friends you two are for him.

Girl this will be hard..been there done that...but you can do it! Just sing to him pray for him..and talk with him. I pray he knows Christ..and he will feel His peace in His passing.I know this is sudden...but to go where there is no more pain...May God call him home fast and may you all..witness the healing of your friend...even if it is in death...It says in the scripture our bodies will be healed. I claim that promise!! I truly believe I will see perfect..my finger will be back in place..and my aches and pains will be gone!!
When I was dying 8 years ago this August...for 3 days ..It was like a second for me...I felt nothing but peace and I heard HIS music in my head.This is what gets me thru the daily ordeals of life...I KNOW there is a greater place than this!!!!!!!
I will be praying for you all!!

So sorry Sweetie. Sometimes there is just no understanding, just trust.

No wonder you didn't return my phone call. Lot's of hugs and prayers. It's been a tough year for everyone, but it looks like my mom might finally pull through.

We'll never understand the whys until we come face to face with Christ.

Miss Sandy may you all feel the comfort and healing of Gods will. Strength in prayer and peace in his will. Our Pastor has told us not to fear death for it is coming home to live with all of our family we have lost before and to live in the safety of the Lord forever...Hugs...Renee

I am a recent new follower of your blog, so I know that you don't know me well yet, but I wanted to write my sorrow for you for Scott. Having lost my mother not so long ago (can it really be almost 3 years alread??) I know the pain of having that word Hospice in my vocabulary! I hope you may find comfort in the fact that many friends and fellow bloggers are thinking of you right now, and lending their kind words and support. If I could reach out and touch you to lend you my strength, I would do so! ~debby
