    Just got back from sitting at the CCU at the local hospital. One of my son's friends suffered a fall on Saturday night, fataling injuring himself. The family and friends are waiting for the young lad to pass, so organs can be harvested. Having a death in a family is particularly difficult on so many levels, but to lose one's son/daughter is so wrong on so many levels. I cannot even begin to imagine the pain his family is going through. The time I was there, the father was a rock.

    My heart is breaking for them.

    That is so sad. So many teens think they are invincible. My condolences to the family. I'm sure that their hearts are breaking. I could not imagine loosing one of my children.
    It is so great that the family chose to help others to live from their tragedy.

    That is so awful..... that poor family, my heart aches for them. I can't imagine anything worse either, than losing a child. It's beyond comprehension how painful it must be for them.

    What an amazing gift to be donating his organs though.

    Hugs to you and your son too MissTreated.

    My heart breaks for you, your son, his family and the community. You will all be in my thoughts and prayers. I wish there was more that I could say or do for all of you. They are a very special family to think of others in a time like this. Bless them all.

    It is sad when you lose a loved one but it is heartbreaking when you lose your own child. The only good that at least can come out of it is that they can help someone else have a better life through organ donation..i know if i was in their shoes that would help me get through the difficult times ahead. my thoughts are with them at this difficult time in their lives.

    Sorry to hear about your son's friend. The worst thing that can happen is to loose a child and the parents will never get over it. Prayers for all of you.
