Will you howl at the moon to let the Gods know a warrior is on the way?

My wife has been in the hospital for a week. Today she was  told that she has 2 choices stay hooked up to the machines and last a week or so or be taking off the machines and giving drugs to keep her comfortable until she passes on. For now she picked staying hooked up. I don't want to go into details so I will finish with the words of a song that we grooved to when we were dating many many moons ago. (you can also find the song on youtube)

Life In The Blood Stream by the Guess Who

YOU DON’T BELIEVE THAT THIS WHOLE UNIVERSE
COULD BE INSIDE YOUR LITTLE SISTER’S PURSE
YOU DON’T BELIEVE YOU’RE JUST A LIVING GLOB
LIKE LUCY, FREDDY, RICKY, FRANK AND BOB

WE’RE LIFE IN THE BLOODSTREAM, BABY
THAT’S THE NATURAL PROGRESSION
WE’RE LIFE IN THE BLOODSTREAM
I HOPE THE LITTLE BOY DON’T FALL AND SKIN HIS KNEE

AIN’T IT HARD WHEN YOU DISCOVER
YOUR ENERGY HAS TO LEAVE YOU FOR ANOTHER
DON’T IT MAKE YOU WANNA LAY DOWN AND CRY
WHEN THEY TELL YOU IT’S TIME YOU HAVE TO DIE

WE’RE LIFE IN THE BLOODSTREAM, BABY
THAT’S THE NATURAL PROGRESSION
WE’RE LIFE IN THE BLOODSTREAM
I HOPE THE LITTLE BOY DON’T FALL AND SKIN HIS KNEE

WE’RE LIFE IN THE BLOODSTREAM, BABY
THAT’S THE NATURAL PROGRESSION
WE’RE LIFE IN THE BLOODSTREAM
I HOPE THE LITTLE BOY DON’T FALL AND SKIN HIS KNEE

    No doubt the two of you must have had many rockin' good times together. And, for what it may be worth, you have my sympathies as well. Whatever happens, I hope you let her know there is a stranger in middle-of-nowhere Serbia thinking of you both.

    Let me inject a little levity so that your situation doesn't hurt you so much. If I'm howling at the moon, that means my meds haven't kicked in yet.;-)

    Nanoose, I'm so sorry to hear you and your wife are in this situation.  These decisions must be terribly hard on both of you.  what I hope is that whatever choices your wife makes, you are both at peace with them.

    Here’s to you and yours, hoping that you can all weather the storm and come out of it well on the other end.

    It has rained all day. It should stop raining tomorrow night. On Friday morning, which should be the first morning without rain, I will go to the park by the river to howl at the moon for the two of you when it rises at 5:48.

    I thank everyone for the warm thoughts and prayers. It is staring to look like my wife is improving and she will soon be back home. So lets keep our fingers crossed. Cheers!

    Sad to have to say that me thinking that my wife will be coming home soon was just wishful thinking on my part based on what my wife had told me. After talking to a doctor today he told me that she won't make it out of the hospital. So I am sorry I spread the false hope by making the comment above. Cheers!
