Rough day

Today was a rough day. I'm not sure that I have ever seen Gess in so much pain. It was so hard to watch him in that much pain and not be able to help him. He's always said that he has never cried from physical pain, but I saw tears today and I see his spirit breaking. I worry that he doesn't have much fight left in him. I don't know how he could in light of the unrelenting pain and the utter inability of the doctors to figure out anything to help him. I hate the feeling of helplessness and it's killing me to watch him like this. For now, it's one moment at a time and I just hope and pray that he can get some relief soon.

Oh my gosh Lisa!!! That must be extremely difficult to watch him in that kind of pain and not be able to help. I'm so so sorry. I wonder if they just set him up with new lung if that would fix most of this crap he's having to go through.

Oh Lisa, I'm so sorry - for Gessner and for you. It is heartbreaking to feel so powerless. Try to hang on to the fight within you - that will make a difference to you both. Big hug from England. Vicky
