YOU AND YOUR FAMILY ARE IN MY PRAYERS...
I will pray for you and your family. I know this is tough, My grandmother passed away exact same circumstances in March '06. I know that when you think about your loved one suffocating it is hard. THe only thing that eased that for me was that they put her on a " hmm I can't think of the name of it" but it was a very strong pain medicine, anyways the medicin drip allowed her to relax, and the doctor assured us that she would not feel herself suffocating, but more or less just feel as though she was drifting off to sleep. I am crying typing this, but at least I knew she was not suffering.
I will keep your family in my prayers for awhile, becasue it takes some time!!! Just stay strong, and look to God!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It's a hard decision to make. I know I can't afford to lose my job but since you are in healthcare, you shouldn't have a problem finding a job.
back to the task at hand, (((((hugs))))) to you and i will pray for Dawn to pass peacefully and as pain free as possible and for your bro and sil to quickly heal the wounds and make peace with their loss and understand she is in a better place where the cancer can no longer hurt her physical body. I'm so sorry for you guys. You have to be torn up inside on what to do. Pray to Him for the answer and He shall give it to you.
Chef - the best advise Ican give is F your job. You don't need a job that will not let you go say good bye to a family member and be there for your family. Jobs come and go but this may be your last chance to say farewell. Good luck to you and do what you feel is right! Much love!
I am sorry your family is going through this...you will be in my thoughts

Oh. I would still go . If you are a nurse you will have no problem at all finding another job and a better one at that. I have worked in health care all my life and i am in school to be a nurse. Any medical job is in high demand.
I will pray for you family. The loss of a child is any mothers worst nightmare. I could not imagine. Take care and stay strong.

You work situation makes me so angry...Family comes first in my book, i cant imagine being in your situation. Of course you have to do what is good for you and your family. Im sure Dawn would not want you to lose your job.
Follow your heart and if it takes you back East then go and know that you did what right for you and your family.
