Re: I feel like giving up

I visit him every day. It breaks my heart to see him like this each day. He looks comfy but weak, but this could be because he's under a lot of pain meds. I just don't know why they won't be able to...

Re: I feel like giving up

The tests showed that he was getting hit by triple whammy (pancreatitis, DKA and urinary tract infection) all at once which is extremely scary and life threatening.
