SWS - it's a fact not easy to understand but, sometime, death is freedom.

I'm sorry for your loss.

Hello Twighlight1011,

I'm so sorry for your loss. Your brother died on my birthday (4th September). He had his whole life ahead of him. Its very sad knowing he left you at the age of 19 years old. As you said, he's no longer in pain and with your father just like my brother is with my father. It still doesn't make it any easier. Hopefully time will.

Thank you for your condolences and prayers.
I truly appreciate your reply.

😘 ❤ 😘

Hello Haven,

Thank you for your kind words.

Yes, I think my father and brother came to let me know they are both okay.

Thank you for your prayers and sincere words.

😘 ❤ 😘

Hello BesutInside,

I didn't know about the two different types of strokes. I googled other things like high sugar level, high potassium level and brain death so that I could try and understand why the life support had to be turned off, but your explanation makes it so much clearer. He did have a huge blood cloth at the back of his head and we were told oxygen wasn't flowing to his brain and thus his brain shut down.

He's at peace now. 😳

Thank you so much for your explanation and condolences.

😘 ❤ 😘

I'm very sorry for you and your families loss 😢 my older brother (well only brother/sibling) passed away 19 years ago, this past September 4th, when he was only 16 (I was 11), to a rare disease. I still miss him today, as the pain of his loss is always there. I'm not sure how long it was after my brother had passed, but I too remember seeing what looked like his shadow (I could tell by his short height, due to his illness) standing in front of my closed door, as light came through the cracks of the bottom of the door, onto the wall beside the door. I laid in my bed, with tears still in my eyes, when I noticed what I was seeing, and sat up trying to make since of it, when I turned my bedside lamp on, and saw nothing there. I quickly turned it back off, only to see nothing there anymore. I always felt that it was my brother, and on a separate occasion, I believe he gave me another visit, that I might share in another story. I'm sure it gave you peace to see your dad with your brother, knowing that your brother wasn't alone. My dad passed away before my mom even knew she was pregnant with me. So that was my comfort after my brother passed, thinking of how he's with our dad again. I wish I could tell you that it'll get better, but I still get emotional thinking back on the day I lost my brother, on what I thought was just going to be another operation he had, and would be home soon again. Seeing him hooked up to a machine that was keeping him alive, was hard for me to process at such a young age, and still remember every detail of that day 😳 I believe a piece of our heart dies when we lose a loved one, but somehow we manage to keep going on, as you know that's what they would want from you. I really hope that you and your family will find comfort soon, and know that he is much happier now, and no longer has to go through all of the pain that he must have felt with his illness. You and your family will be in my thoughts and prayers ❤

Hi Sleeping -

I am very sorry for your loss. I believe that your brother came to you that day with your father so that you knew he was not alone and you would feel better about the decision that was made.

My thoughts and prayer go out to you and your family.

Hi SWS,

Once again, I am very sorry for your loss. ❤

Your family had to make one of the thoughest decisions anyone could make. Even if you didn't agree, which I completely understand, that might have been for the best. Unfortunately, there was no way your dear brother could recover from a stroke that strong.

Maybe you already know this, but if you don't let me try to help you understand the state your brother was in:

There are 2 main strokes, hemorrhagic and ischemic stroke.
If your brother suffered from diabetes and it was out of control most likely he suffered a hemorrhagic stroke (bleeding to the brain) which is the most severe type. It's easier to recover from na ischemic stroke (it happens when a fatty substance called plaque collects in your arteries and narrows them), because there's no bleeding to the brain.
In your brother's case the bleeding might have been so severe that left him brain dead, and there's no coming back from that.
If he was to survive he might have been in vegetative state...

No one deserves to make such a difficult decision Sleeping, I am very sorry that you and your family had to go through such a tough moment...

My deep condolences to you and your family. ❤
