Sorry Grandad I dont Know what to say except my thoughts are with you.

I have severe emphysema and know I will not see my grand children grow up so I can appreciate how you feel in that respect.

They cant tell me how long I have got, only that it will be sooner rather than later.

What to say? Live for today?

I don't really know what to say, but feel I have to say something.
If nothing else to let you know that my thoughts and prayers are with you.

It's me again
even tho the doctors have estimated my time at less than a year
I have this to say
over this past year I have actually died  twice with severe heart attacks and both times under the surgeons knife
both times the family was notified that there was no hope
then I DID DIE AND TRAVELED TO HEAVENS GATE
there I as met at the gate  (once in June of of 08 and the last time in Augest of 08)  -by an angel NO MISTAKE and I am not LYING
the angel , in a deep lovimng voice sent me home telling me that my work on earth hasn't been completed
then during another heart failure in March of  this year while in the ICU unit in the heart institute in Columbia SC I met THE LORD face to face
that is another story
if you would like to hear about it let me know
otherwise I Will keep it to myself and family and friends
sooooooooo!~ I shall keep on praying and hoping for the best

It is very difficult to find the right kind of words when confronted by these situations and I am not going to try, save to say, you chaps are still here so it isn't your time yet, we all have it coming, it's as much part of life as being born.' It aint over till the fat lady signs' as they say and I'm sure I speak for a lot of folk on here when I say we enjoy your communications and want them to continue as long as you do, so don't give upon us yet will you. I think if you chaps make just one depressed  reader on here turn his life around by making him appreciate the only precious thing he has then your posts should be considered invaluable.
Grandad, you are obviously not being allowed to 'clock out' till your boss decides it's time up, so you better get on with your job! :-))
Good luck to you fellas .

Thank you Footski and welcome back. It's almost impossible to know how to approach a situation like this but I suppose we are all in the same boat aren't we? The only difference is that a lot of us just haven't  been told 'when' yet.

Hi Guys, I for one am not looking to go just yet, I keep my mind active and my body, im still working at over 70, at least 5 hrs a day, I love working, meeting people, I explain my situation, it does not bother my customers, they know they get a good job for not to much money, it just keeps my head above water paying the bills.

My boat building has suffered in the last 12 months, due to tests and hospital appointments, I keep taking the tablets, and hope they are working, I might get back to building soon. RON1 , ron h

I too would like to add my "words" of comfort but Sheerline has put it so well already so I concur with his sentiments.

What are some of your life's greatest moments larry?

Larry & Ron, I know exactly how you feel, in june '94 while in coma after surgery to remove a pituitary tumor, I was also sent back and told my work was not completed. I believe that work to be spreading the word of Angels and GOD. It dosen't matter what faith a person follows there are 2 constants GOD and Angels 15 years later i still get contacted out of the blue via the internet by persons facing these terminal illnesses. I believe a Positive attitude and a deep faith may not get a cure but will  definately prolong you time on earth and give you a beter quality of life to the end, This is the message I give to all who contact me.

This following story written by my wife in 1998, about her experience of the 10 days I was in coma.

Lifted Up By Angels

My husband had been in a coma in intensive care for the ten days after his surgery to remove a brain tumour.  There were many tubes leading into and out of his body and he was on life support machines.  He lay naked under a sheet so that medical treatment could be administered easily and quickly.  The doctors, interns and social workers had been preparing me for the need to turn off his life support, as he was, in their opinion brain dead.  However, I held out on making this decision as I was not convinced of this.  
For the past three days, when I first entered his room and kissed his bare chest I noticed a slight movement on one of the monitors.  I believed that this was a sign from him and his guardian angel that he was still able to recognise me: that he was not brain dead.  
Three hospital specialists and their seven attendant interns tried to persuade me one last time that it was time to make the decision.  I felt intimidated by the combined knowledge and power of these people, but was sure in myself that my husband was not brain dead, and again explained how he was responding to my presence each morning.  They asked me to show them there and then that a touch from me could show up on one of his monitors.  And kindly explained that it was no longer in my hands.  That they would be making the decision to terminate life support.
My husband had never responded to my kiss at any time other than first thing in the mornings, so I felt really apprehensive. As I stood on the left side of his bed  I leant close to his ear and affirmed loudly and clearly that it was time to wake up now.  That his time of rest in the care of God's angels must come to an end.  That he should now come back to Earth to be with me and our son.  Then I leaned over and kissed his chest and lay my head just above his heart.  I held my breath and waited - I did not look at that monitor.  I prayed silently and asked God to let his angels do something, anything, to prove that my husband was alive.
Then I heard a gasp from the medical men and women at the end of the bed, as his left arm, complete with tubes and wires, lifted up and came to rest on my head.
That was in 1994.  My husband is alive and well today and remains in remission.

Yes this did happen.
Damien

Ps. Larry,   Jo and I would love to hear your tale of meeting the Lord and what it meant to you, D.

No one really knows when our time is up, hence I try living each day as it could be the last.  All the best to you guys & I look towards many more posts in the future.

I too have cancer and have a limited time left, but I have to ask why are we turning this model boat site into a god slot, maybe if he is so powerful he actually caused these cancers and isnt all good after all, just my two pence worth.

I think we have to accept that we have enjoyed the priveledge of having a Chit Chat section to enable all members to exchange thier views on all subjects.  The moderating team have discussed in the past whether this is the right thing to do and have come to the conclusion that it adds to the forum rather than detracts from it.

If we are to continue this then I think we should allow every one the facility of sharing thier views and to this end I respect Grandad for doing so.  I think it is important to remember that personal views on religion and god remain thier own views and if they want to share them then so be it.  We will allow any member to continue to do this.  We will not however allow others to post inflamatory, derisive or offensive posts in answer to these opinions so I would ask that the posts in this thread remain supportive and positive.  If anyone does not agree with what has been said then I would ask that they remain tactful and respectful in how they say so.

during my series of hospital stays was the one at Richland
after one of the heart stopping events and the one that I shall never forget~~~~ Its the story of making a best friend for life and even after~~~~~~~
I was laying in the ICU hospital bed and could not sleep
2 O'Clock in the morning and I was watching TV and thinking of asking the nurse for something to help me relax ~~~~~~~~ suddenly something on the television caught my eye and beamed me ~~~~~~~~~ the speaker had a Mohawk hair cut tattoos to his shoulders wearing a black T shirt boots and black motorcycle pants his words as he spoke cut me deep deeper than I have ever been cut

"Going to church will not get you into heaven, sitting in church with clasped hands will not get you into heaven the only way that you can get into heaven is by making GOD your BEST friend" the speaker intoned
~~~~~~~~~I started to cry !!crying so hard that I could not see!! he was speaking to ME
with the IV still connected to my arms climbed out of bed and knelt before the TV
/ held out my hands and asked the LORD to help me for I knew that I was a sinner ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ well brothers and sisters felt GOD take my hands in his and heard a strong but soothing masculine voice tell me Larry YOU will join me in HEAVEN at the end of time ~~ Your sins are forgiven~~~ I FELT HIS TOUCH and I Heard HIS voice and knew that my life would never be the same~~ God is now a part of me and I preach HIS word where ever I go the end of time is coming and we had better prepare for it

I made GOD my best friend and it was the best thing that I have ever done I was a sinner a SINNER but will not SIN no more!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Praise GOD
