    * NEW Update on Brandon-* He is gone....

    I've been holding my breath, praying this news would be a long time in coming.... but I knew, eventually, it had to come... For those on Facebook, Sis asked not to mention this on there because Brandon still goes on there and reads and so does his mother.

    I know a lot of you have helped with prayers through out the years and it is time for more prayers. Sis sent me this shortly after I got home from the hospital,

    "He has paralysis in his face. One eye won't shut, mouth drooping bad and his speech is slurred, then she said that when they were eating he could not hold onto his fork, kept dropping it. So they took him to see his Dr. when the Dr saw Brandon she says he gets this awful look on his face but did not say anything. Brandon was sent to have another MRI. Cindy says she is so scared that this may the end of the end as he has lived past the 2 years that they say he would survive. Yesterday she texted me and says that they did find something and they want to go in and take a biopsy of whatever it is. She waiting for them to set all that up but in the meantime she is on pins and needles.
    To me, this sounds dire, my heart breaks for his Mom.

    Oh my God. Prayers for Brandon and you all.
    I meant," said Ipslore bitterly, "what is there in this world that truly makes living worthwhile?"
    Death thought about it.
