A Friend Of Mine Passed Away Last Night .

Recommended Posts

Her name is Dorothy and she was diagnosis with scleroderma 2 years ago. I don't have any details of what happen yet but I am taking this very hard. I met her at a group meeting and she was so scared and was so glad she met me and others group members. It helped her meeting other with scleroderma and for her to know she was not alone. Well I jsut wanted to share this with you all and please keep her family in your thoughts. We are surely going to miss her dearly. At least I know I am. Sam

I just got off the phone with Ron. He said she was having shortness of breath and that was going on for awhile. Last month when I had talked to him he had mentioned that and also said that all the test they had ran came back ok. So he with the fibrous being there that is what cause her shortness of breath but what made her go was her heart just stop. She has had a rough 18 months. Going through kidney dylaisis and being in and out of the hospital.

 

Well I willl be going to Michigan on Thursday for the visitation. I am going to start cooking and take some food up there to help out.

 

Thanks everyone for your thoughts. I really do appreciate it. Sam

Sam ,

 

This is what I don't understand about this disease. There's no 'rhyme or reason' for the progression!!! Did she have symptoms longer than 2 years or did it just rear it's ugly head 2 years ago and now she has died? Was she being treated medically? I am soooooooo sorry for you and her husband. Things like this scare me because Gareth was just diagnosed last fall.......no one knows the progression of their disease!!! So many of you have had it for 10, 20, or more years and, then, there are people who last 2 years.

 

Take care, Everyone.

Sam,

 

So sorry to hear your sad news. None of us know how long we have, but it was sad she passed so quickly. I have had diffuse scleroderma for over 10 years now, though nobody thought I would last that long. I've also had kidney dialysis for over 6 years, so no one can say........

 

I'll be thinking of you.

 

Warm hugs,
