    Here`s the deal. My best buddys grandpa isn`t doing well. I`ve known of this for quite a while, but it has gotten marginally worse over the past few months. He`s been in the hopsital for at least a few days each month, and my buddys parents decided that he was going to be "DNR", so the next time they had to call 911, well, it`s final. Well, I`ve just gotten a few messages just now, informing me he`s not doing well at all, and is lucky to last another week or so...I`m pretty close to this family, known them for about 9 or 10 years, so he`s like a grampa to me too...They`ve asked me to be a paulbearer (sp?) and I`m proudly accepting it...

    If you guys could, keep him in your thoughts, and maybe cast a prayer for him, if its not too much trouble...:(

    Update, Last night he fell I guess, bent a chair in his room, hit his head, and split his shoulder open. So he went to the hospital, and when they took him home today, they said they`re giving him 3-14 days:( I guess the congestive heart failure and his lungs filling up with liquid aren`t getting better, just dramatically worse:(
