No, she didn't. I hope so much for her sake that she goes to be with God soon. She is not really living, just existing. It is the hardest thing to look at. People have deserted her, not because they don't love her, but because they can't stand to see it.

I know. I took care of my mom at home for a year as I watched her die from cancer of the pancreas. There is nothing kind about it. You become thick skinned after these experiences.

I hope I can become thick skinned...but I never want to be hard hearted, though. I do pray that God takes her as soon as He sees fit.

I do too, Suzanne. You are in my thoughts.

Suzanne,

I'm so sorry as well. You are being a true friend by visiting Karen and continuing your talks with her. Not many people stay when someone is going through an illness or a tragedy. You'll always be proud that you did.

Thank you...she would have done it for me if the tables were turned. She is the best friend I have ever known. Friday is her Mother's funeral. Please remember her...there is no way she could be taken, even on a stretcher.

It just hurts so bad to see this once vibrant person in this condition. I used to be able to read her lips about 7 years ago but she can't do that anymore. Just the blinking is all she has.

She looks like the woman who was in a simular state. I think her name was Terry Schivo? (sp)

I can communicate with Karen, though. If you know her, you know she's still there.

My thoughts will be with her on Friday. Again, I'm sure your visits mean the world to her.

You're so sweet and I appreciate it. She was the "keeper of the flame" so to speak. Her family has completely fallen apart since this happened to her.

One out of every 5, I think, die from this operation. She just happened to be one who didn't die but instead lived...although this is not living.

I gave her up about 2 years ago. Next to losing my Mother at age 7, this was the hardest thing I've ever done. I know that God brought her into my life for a reason when we were kids. I still don't know what the reason was.

I have an extreme phobia about people leaving me. Seems like the ones I really love die. It's lead me to be afraid to really love. It hurts too bad when they leave.

I'll see her again someday...and we can talk about all the things in our lives like we used to do.

That is a bittersweet story Suzanne - to know someone so wonderful and to also know she can't be that way anymore. You are a good friend and kind person to be there with her.
