I ask again please for prayers for my cousin Mike. He currently lies in a coma in the intensive care unit of a Calgary hospital. In the past week he has under gone 3 emergency operations. Two on his heart and one to check his kidneys. His kidneys have completely shut down. I spoke with my cousin Fran (his sister) last night and she tells me the doctors only give him a 20-25% chance of survival. His sisters, Fran, Marge and Judy are in Calgary with him.
I am a 61 year old male. At the age of 52 I was told by my doctor I am dying. For the past 4 years, I have done my best to deal with both congestive heart failure and a brain tumor, while knowing my days are indeed numbered. It is my hope that by sharing my experiences, I can encourage others faced with the same situation. I hope to also help the families of those individuals to have an understanding of the process and deal with the fear or dread of being around the dying.
I am not a doctor, not a man of the clergy, I am not a therapist. I am just me, Bill Howdle, I am merely sharing my thoughts and ideas. I write of death and dying, understand this is my personal prospective, based on what I am encountering.
I have already said a prayer for him and family.
Your cousin Mike is in my thoughts, and you are, too.

Hope you’re gettin’ to feeling better….
Gina, Jill and Mel, I thank you all so much.
