well, I had a tooth pulled and it was a no pain one..t hen after I got home he shot wore off and the pain set in.. ouch.. I am up early as today we have an appointment with the funeral place to get our spot.. ThisĀ is something I wanted done years ago, but we never did, so now we are going to do this.. John and I had a long talk and we both agree to buy this now.. When the time comes, I will not be able to do it,,(heck not sure I can do it now) but neither of us want our son to do this,as it will be hard on him...Besides that, we both figure that when it happens, the funeral home will talk us into something alot more expensive then what we can afford..and add alot of unnecessary things.. I go from a crying bout, to being ok with this..Hope I can make it through the appointment. John is losing more weight and he admitted to me he feels worse now...More coughing,(if this is possible) and more gagging....I sure do worry about this trip to Florida...Not sure I really want to go. I know there ARE good hospitals there, but want to be here if he gets worse..to be close to the family, and HIS doctor..John did say we would cancel if he feels he cant go...but I know him, and he wants to go, so bet nothing will stop us from going.. I guess I should try sleeping afew hours so am going to try...

Going to the dentist can be a bummer. Hope your pain gets better. Advil will help. It is never pleasant making funeral arrangements, done it myself. I am sorry to hear that John seems to be getting worse. Hopefully, he will be OK to go to Florida because he seems to want to go very badly. You do need to get some sleep, so hopefully when you read this you will have slept for a while. Talk to you later. Hang in there. Love your friend, Marie

I do think it\'s good that you\'re getting the arrangements taken care of now... I know it\'s a difficult thing, but I know you\'ll get thru it, and be relieved to have it all done. I wish we could afford to do that - I know it would put my mind at ease. I hope you have a chance to get some much-needed rest..you\'ll feel better if you do. I\'ll be thinking of you, my friend...and John as well. Take care, and we\'ll catch up soon. BIG hugs, Lori
