Give me a break!

Like there wasn't enough going on. One of my best friends, Danny, whose mother just passed away around Christmas this past year, is back in the hospital with a Crohn's flare up. He's feeling really bad and we don't yet know if he needs more surgery.

Then today, I find out that another good friend, Gregory, finally lost his battle with pulmonary fibrosis on Monday. That boy had the sexiest voice ever and was the sweetest guy you would ever want to know. I last saw him a couple of years ago on a trip up to Boston, and he already had to carry around an oxygen bottle at that point. I knew his only hope was to get a lung transplant. Either something else went wrong, or his body rejected what he ended up getting.

Gregory, I will miss your laugh, your voice and everything about you.

I'm so sorry, sweetie.

All I can do is offer warm and heart-felt hugs.

Thanks. It's less of a trauma to me because both were things I knew would eventually happen. Danny has Crohn's, and I know he'll always end up in the hospital every couple of years. Gregory had been fighting Pulmonary Fibrosis as long as I've known him (about 15 years), so it was only a matter of time.

((HUGS)) I don't know what else to say

I'm so sorry that you have to deal with this on top of everything else. ((Hugs)) Hang in there.
