How do you get through the worst of the worst? Crying or Very sad

Morgan, Do you mean in life, or the changes to Giant Steps?

But really, what's going on with you? Is it pay dues time?
Any way we can help?

Depends on what the worst is, care to elaborate?

I'm sure that the day Tommy Flanagan showed up to the session thinking that Coltrane wrote Giant Steps as a ballad was a pretty bad day...that'd probably make me post something like your post.

My uncle (whos around 45) has been battling lung cancer for a few years now. Its spread to his liver and other organs. Hes been holding up for a while, staying in a wheel chair and having an oxygen tank. He is constantly in the hospital, with more bad news. So yesterday my mom heard he was septic, meaning he has blood poisoning ont top of all the other things wrong with him. Soon there is a good chance he will have multiple organ failure. Because of this he has a huge amount of toxins in his blood system. His blood pressure was too low from the spetis that they couldn't put him on a dialisis. Now it seem that they raised his blood pressure and he doing ok. Yesterday was a very scary day. He is constantly at death door. If they didn;t get the toxins out when they did it would have been very different. He has a wife and two children (my aunt and cousins). There in la. We are in sandiego. My mom went up to see him today. She says I have to go to my guitar lesson today. I'm worried and scared. My sister just got her wisdom teath out, and my dog is really sick. Its been really rough you know.

Just wanted to know how you guys get through tough times. I don't know if I'm soposed to be talking about it- my uncle. But why not.

Morgan

My suggestion is to spend quality time and talk with your family and close friends, not a bunch of strangers on a largely anonymous, impersonal website.

just give in to the endless cycle of things, and try to stay in touch with the spiritual side of life. see that disease, death and loss, are as much a part of life as health, joy, birth. try to say goodbye to the person that is leaving, but also acknowledge all the things he leaves behind. sometimes, through a pain like this, you can come out with a really appreciative attitude towards the gift of life, and discover a strength within you that you never knew was there

Morgan, Alter said it very well. Many sad things, disappointments, and
seemingly unfair things happen to us all as we go thru life.
Rely on your family for support and help each other thru this.

Its will be on friday, the funeral. A cloudy, maybe rainy day in LA. My aunt is having her parents come in from israel. The worst part is in about a week my cousin is having her batmitzvah. Everyone was hoping he'd make it till then. So everyone will be back in LA in about a week. It will be a bitter sweet event. So I have to kill time untill thursday when I go up. My moms staying up there for the week and a while after. Everyone seems to be holding it together. I havent talked to anyone but my mom. I was adviced by my dad not to talk to anyone in LA but my mom, so I don't know how everyone is. Some people in my family believe in the mysterious spiritual stuff, and the death happend within 1 day of my grandpas death about 4 years ago. They say they got "mysterious phone calls" and other strange things, trying to relate them to the death. Things like, I picked up the phone and all I heard was breathing and then someone said my name. Stuff like that. Sopposedly everyone got this "mysterious phone call." So everyones dealing with it in their own way.

Morgan

Hey, Morgan, it's a hard thing. My Dad spent the last 10 months of his life in bed dying of cancer. Though it was sad, it was a relief when he finally passed. Life is hard, but life goes on. I think the best advice is to help your family get through this.

I hope you are starting to feel a little better about your loss Morgan.
I know it's very tough in this world sometimes and everyone goes thru it.
I feel since we are all in this universe together that nobody is really gone just changed.
All the best to you and your family.
