Come, Come

This post is dedicated to my friend George and his Clan:  

Come, come fly with me
to the Land of Free
when troubles you see
and pain won’t flee …
Come, come fly with me
as together we touch
a Heav’n who Loves
us ever so much!

Friends, I am reaching out to you today.  A very dear friend of mine is now in a medical induced coma after he suffered an aneurysm and mini stroke.  Some of you may know him.  His name is George.  If you know him, family are asking if you would write comments on his blog or even emails that they can read to him.  Here is the link to georgeforfun taking you directly to the post his twin daughters wrote.  The information you need to write is contained in this post.

Family is with him around the clock making sure his brain is kept stimulated.  Thank you from the bottom of my Heart for taking some time out to Love on George and his family.  My friend means the world to me!  Bless you!

❤ ❤ ❤

    1. Thank you, Scott. George is a fellow blogger but I have gotten to know him through emails and in so doing, he truly is a good friend to me now. Life just keeps on hitting this man yet every time he comes back smiling. Bless you for your kind thoughts. (((HUGS))) ❤

    We are so humbled by your post and outpouring from others reached by you, Ms Amy to people we don’t know. Heck we’re lucky to have discovered Dad’s password much less know all the followers and people Dad follows. So thanks seem so inadequate but heartfelt. We will continue to stimulate Dad with all your posts and comments. Trying to replace Dad is something none of us feel adequate to do, but we’ll just try out best. TY so much for your understanding an patience with us. We are indeed humbled by this outpouring.

    1. You are so very welcome. Anything I can do to help George I’ll do it! I am amazed you were able to get into WP. To say the least, I am impressed. Traffic today is slow (go figure) but I hope it will pick up later. I am doing all I can behind the scenes alerting people I know George knows so they leave comments for him.
      And as for replacing that man, forget it. Not possible. You are doing a terrific job in running things and keeping things well organized. I know how “emotion” can cloud judgment but from what I hear you as a Clan are working together as ONE, a lesson all of us could use. Bless you and and Bless all of what you are doing for George. My goodness when he finds out what has transpired he will just bust with pride. Much Love and (((HUGS))) Amy ❤

      1. Thank you Amy, we’re trying to catch up after the weekend with extended family visits and church and trying to keep things fairly normal for all the Kiddies. This is Sarah DIL 1/RED 1/ Wife of one of Dad’s Twins. BB is resting surrounded by Kiddies taking early down time/hopefully naps. I took Dad’s phone from BB so she won’t have to worry about making updates and answering emails, today. I’m learning how to use this program, so please if I screw up, let me know.

      2. Sarah, I am doing all I can to find those who know George. I’m still finding them. You are doing a fantastic job so please don’t you fret if you make mistakes. This blogging thing is a lot more to it then what first meets the eye. I will do my best to keep you notified of those who I find and whose comments still need to be replied to. Your hands are more then full and I of anyone understands. As for BB, I am so relieved she is getting some rest. She is burning the candle at both ends and George of anyone would not want her to collapse or get ill. She has to stay healthy and strong. Thank you and God bless you for everything you are doing. Much Love, Amy ❤ ❤ ❤

      3. We told Girlies that BB needed rest but she needed their help to relax so she wouldn’t get sick. So they insisted on early lunch and “demanded” reading time they’d missed over last couple of days. Apparently they guilted her into it, now I can hear a familiar snoring, LPs, and our daughters and sons, even MG has fallen asleep in a pile with them on Dad’s bed downstairs. ❤ ❤

      4. Oh thank God!! Those Girlies are Angels, I would swear to it. Just imagining all legs and arms and a snoring gets me giggling. Keep it up, LP’s. If there is anyone who BB will listen to it is you two. I hope she sleeps the entire afternoon! She more then needs it. Crossing fingers those kiddies will be quiet when they wake up. Who I am kidding? Kids quiet? LOL ❤ ❤ ❤

      5. D!!! It is wonderful to connect with you!! Oh my goodness, you “feel” like your daughters. Blow me away! I feel like I’ve just walked into a cloud high in the sky. 🙂 🙂 🙂
        George recommended that noise machine to me and I use it all the time. I am so grateful for that so much so I sent one to my sister and Mom. They both use theirs all the time as well.
        Those Kiddies and BB are just worn out. A lot of emotions to process. I got the biggest kick imagining what it looked like to see that tumble of bodies on that bed. BB especially needs to sleep right through the night. Hopefully someone is making sure she eats good. Oh yes she is strong and tough but, as I kept telling her the affairs of the Heart will just plum wear you out.
        When I can I plan on sitting down to write emails to George as I normally would. I will tell him I am taking advantage here by writing while he is asleep. Now I don’t have to have my mouth open in disbelief at how fast he would write back or how long his emails are. LOL I miss talking with him, believe me. I deliberately didn’t write much after BB came back home because I did not want to intrude. Now though is a completely different story so I shall continue writing and whoever reads those emails will get to know me a bit.
        OK! I still have much ahead of me to do. I’ll be explaining all that in my emails to George so he can have a good laugh on me. I LOVE how we laugh!!! Much Love, Amy ❤

      6. Usually the DILs or BB read to Opa/Brother..They say my voice is still too faint unless I yell. It’s ok, he knows when I whisper in his ears. Nothing more comforting than knowing I can be there for him as he was for Girls and I and my adopted Son from Haiti. Or as always since I was teenager and patents died. Thankfully he married my Sister and became part of my Family. I don’t know what I’d be without him and his second family. Blessed I am. 💓💞💓

      7. D, I feel the very same about George. He has become so dear to me and I never even saw it coming. It just happened. I’ve told your daughters that he has super hearing on account of loosing his voice so no need to worry he does not hear you. Now I know who the super Doc is in the family. I don’t know how you handled being an MD at such a young age. I know from what I saw and did as an RN in the SICU that it can be very hard on the emotions. I am Blessed just as you are. That dear man has become a Rock to me. As I told BB, I am married to a Vietnam Vet who has a lot of problems and George has been there for me when I was in tears just not wanting to continue my Tough Love Walk wth this man. I am so indebted to him for all he has done for me. I think the church should canonize him, don’t you? In my eyes he is a saint.
        And about the Clan. I have a long time ago stopped trying to remember who is who. My mind was in a twist every time George attempted to give me the rundown of the Clan. I thought my “family” was big. Now however as I interact with Clan the pieces are beginning to fall into place. I have a higher then normal IQ yet it falls very far from where most of you are. So I struggle more. Too funn. LOL
        Much Love ….. ❤

      8. Growing up in the shadows/memory of our older Twins, we were expected to reach the skies and stars to meet expectations. Thankfully we were gifted enough, but tragedy can either make you or break you and George chose to see that nothing would break us and that we would have the same opportunities as his own children. My Twin became a wanderer and even George fights to keep track of her and keep her informed, but he won’t force her to be something she’s not or doesn’t want to be. That’s also one reason we will keep updates across his social media accounts, she can peek without saying a word, but also knows how to reach us in emergencies. Stress of expectations was too much for her after our parents’ accident and older Sisters and then Georges’ girls, it overloaded her delicate soul and off she was to find peace. She hasn’t met her Nieces or Nephew or any new members since she left 5 years ago. George isn’t going anywhere until he knows she’s coming home, that is what keeps him going along with his love and compassion for so many people across the world. He never forgets anyone, well, most of the time, at least. Thank you for such kind words. Sarah saw this and told me I needed to log on and reply. We’re sharing as much as possible to not overload anyone. BB, Girlies and Grands are already down for their naps. They spent a few hours this morning in Nature and cool air, helped calm them and tired them enough to eat and nap early. ❤ ❤ We're definitely dysfunctional to some people, but Family and Clan doesn't require blood to belong together, just unconditional love. D……

      9. Tears in my eyes as I read this, D. Your Clan is the furthest thing from dysfunctional. Blood is not required for Love and for Family to bloom. I understand why your sister would run. My childhood had very similar circumstances with perfection expected. We were required to pull A’s in school and when we brought home even an A- we were scorned, put down, punished even, things promised were taken away. I remember knots of worry in my stomach on my way home sitting on a school bus because I had a B+. Terrible way to bring children up and even to this present day I must constantly gently tell myself I do not have to be perfect. I have gone my separate ways and do not have much contact with my biological family because of dysfunction, and because I am feared for my truthful ways. My Heart goes out to your sister and all your siblings because those scars formed in childhood haunt you. They do. How you must miss her! I also understand how a gentle soul would require to be surrounded by those who really do not not know her. I can only take the world in small doses and my biological family as well, because darn it, I feel too darn much. Most people don’t understand that energy is more alive then anything else and I seem to be plugged into it. I’ve only recently been able to form a relationship with my real mother after she was diagnosed with last stage renal cancer. Her inner dragon disappeared and her inner child appeared in its place. I deliberately reached out with unconditional Love and insisted I would get to know my mother before she dies. To this day I really don’t know her for she does not know how to share but this I can tell you, and this I hope will give you hope, where once lived hate or fear, Love survived and gave Life to what once was barren.
        Please thank Sarah that she notified you. Please tell her and Sydney that they are doing an absolute terrific job with WP. Remind them softly that I only have 10 fingers while you combined including BB, have let me see …. 40 fingers. LOL Yes I type fast yet …. I’m joking!! I LOVE talking to all of you and getting to know each of you has been such a JOY for me. But if I am quiet or seem missing in action for a while, this week especially is a busy one. I saw on my phone that you wrote. At the time I was in my gardens winterizing them. I do have my eye out for your Clan and BB. I actually did write BB this morning telling her I really have a full schedule (she is beginning to get the idea LOL) and that I would sit down and write when I could.
        Thank goodness kiddies along with BB are down again napping. We all need to pace ourselves as we all continue to handle what is going on. No sense wearing ourselves out.
        When I met George, I honestly did not know what to make of that man. First of all the quantity of writing he is able to do blew me away, and at times I literally groaned when I saw I received another book from him. LOL But over time we threw the caution to the wind, or as best as he could, and we became friends. I don’t need to know specifics and I don’t ask questions. I don’t poke my nose where it doesn’t belong though I must admit my curiosity bug has been lit. I have come to understand that George gets unconditional Love, something after my NDE I too became to understand and live.
        Well …. Back to my gardens and while I am in the house put down some food for those cats who want to eat. I don’t know who knows what, but I and my husband take care of and Love special needs cats who have become our family. Hubby is also a Vietnam Vet with a lot of issues which George heard about and helped me deal with. God Love that man!!

      10. Sarah was doing updates and passed on this to me. Kiddies have worn BB and themselves out today, Nature and fresh air will do that, thankfully. We also know where to find all of them little arms and legs, except MG, his Mom keeps him close so he doesn’t wake the others too early. They can hear him breathe and wake up or come looking for him to make sure he’s OK. He’s definitely like his Opa…………..Try to not overdo, Amy, and we’ll do the same on this end. Slowly reducing sedation, don’t want any sudden “awakenings” or startles or “sleep paralysis” symptoms and messing up his vital signs. We just have to keep our patience in check and not show any signs of worry in front of Kiddies or George. Easier said than done, but we’ve each other to remind and monitor, thankfully blessed in numbers at a time like this. We are still curious and apprehensive about any memory losses, and voluntary movements. If needed, we’ll have someone move in to conduct his restorative care and PT. Best place for George is surrounded by his Clan so he knows everyone is OK and he’s nearby. Plus we can control him with all the hands on deck if he gets a wild hair and becomes stubborn, heavens forbid………………..George always reminds us to remember to Breathe deeply always, it’s his way of saying slow down, live longer and fuller life, isn’t that why we’re here?????????????? big hugs, Amy from us all. Kisses and curtsies from my Angels(most times when they’re not being LPs) haaaaaaaaaaaa

      11. God bless you for informing me of the latest. I’ve been taking an “easy” day yet waiting for anything about George. I am praying and keeping as calm as possible that he wakes up gently and he will have no deficits. I agree it is best to have Clan around him especially now that the docs are weaning the meds off. You are so fortunate to have each other to hang on to. You being a doctor knows that the wake up period can get hairy so I know all are prepared. OH how I pray he is OK!! The sooner he is home the better. Again I am in tears. This has been very emotional for me although I’ve tried not to show it. I do not want anyone picking up on my feelings, and I know I am interacting with Empaths. I will keep on breathing deeply and keep in prayer. Here we go …. Time for Truth to arise ….. ❤ ❤ ❤

      12. Thank you so much, Amy. I was blessed to have George at my side after those lost months and him fighting to have my babies moved into my room as soon as he did so I could feel them and placing them in bed with me so they knew me and my heart even if not my voice. He would hold my hands around them so they’d know my scent and feel my pulse and often he;d lay them on my heart where they could bond with me even while unconcious

      13. Wow! Just wow!! And you remember. Unbelievable! He was right to have your babies near you. I know it made you fight all the harder to come back to “Life”. Those babies knew you from the womb yet not knowing your smell. How hungry they must have been to feel you and to smell you. Just picturing the scene tugs at me. My friend is one incredible man. To have someone like that at your side in some of your darkest hours … yes, D, you are Blessed. Now it is our turn, all of us, to pull this man back to “Life”. I’ve been in prayer all day. I’m just about preparing to edit some of my photos and when I do that I go into another world where nothing exists but NOW. I’ll send that Energy to George with Intention. xoxo ❤

      14. Yes, we were all so lucky that he is so stubborn when it comes to his Clan and others he loves. He had already gotten approved by the CA bar to file paperwork to assume custodianship of my girls, my son and me with an old power of attorney. He then got a judge to make an emergency injunction to prevent any interference from hospital to determine best course of treatment for girls. It didn’t hurt that his oldest daughter interned in a pediatric cancer ward at Johns Hopkins under supervision of Dr. Carson, yep that one. He called earlier today to check on George, I was almost scared to answer the phone, normally he just sends a text or short email. He’d just missed hearing the Girlies’ voices in background, said he’d call earlier next time. What a wonderful man he is along with his wife, Candy.

        George’s entourage, led by the BB herself, is still downstairs snoring up a storm, stupid allergies. We’re letting them sleep as long as they need. We moved the old monitor from John’s apt back to the house so we could check on the Snorers to make sure they don’t have problems breathing. TY for all you’re doing and already have done to support all of us since the beginning. ❤
        I'm still searching for the self made emoticons George made. His idea of a filing system isn't easy to crack, but we'll get it done if necessary…………………………As long as it makes sense to him and I don't need it, I'll leave it alone. Otherwise I'll have the DILs take it apart if I need to find something REALLY important or NECESSARY. Who's going to tell me NO? ❤ ❤

      3. LPs’ Mom says she’s been talking to them and explaining the difference between delaying waking up Opa until he’s well enough to hug and hold them and him not waking up at all. BB has been reading them some of Dad’s postings when she was in coma and they were still in incubators. Thankfully he videotaped a lot from their birth until they left hospital months later, so they can see how their Mom improved enough to hold them even asleep. They seemed calmer, even joking about ice bags for Opa instead of making ice cream. Our hubbies being around seem to reassure them, too. We have to remind ourselves to be positive when they are near, they feel any doubts or fears, just like Dad. Oh, they’re still sleeping in a big pile, worn out is understatement apparently.

      4. You must know how truly devastated I am about all this, yet I know that I know I am somehow keyed into both George and the LP’s so I have deliberately been staying Centered. Not easy to do but I keep reminding myself I will do anything where George is concerned. Before he came into my life, I had no real sense of a familial foundation. Because of The conversations that transpired over months of back and forth emails I discovered I really Love George and he me. I cannot explain it. It just is. And it is the same way about the LP’s. I will remain calm, I will remain centered walking every step of the way with George and his Clan as best as I can. The calamities that man has suffered he is bound to come out of this one too and without any sensory or physiological deficits. And IF he does, he is still George and nothing anyone can say or do will change my mind on that.
        Thank goodness all are still sleeping as of one hour ago. Know my prayers and my Heart are with all of you. Much Love and God’s Blessings, Amy ❤

And sleep sometimes is the best medicine for those under duress. Please take care of YOU. I understand the Clan have really been acting as ONE and with great knowledge yet the emotions and stress do tend to catch up. Just hang on knowing George will pull through this! I cannot conceive, as I told BB, a world without him in it. And again as I told BB for your Dad to be reacting as he is in this coma is miraculous. The people who have been responding on the post about your Dad will not stop praying. I know. And God does answer prayer! ❤

    This is a continuing nightmare for you sweetie, one I wish you could wake up from and find things back go to a more peace-filled time in life that is filled with Love and Roses, where the thorns don’t prick so hard or so deeply and the air is filled with the aroma of Love rather than that feeling of sadness you are going thru much too often now. Take care of you, and know my prayers are with you, as well as with his family.

    1. Angie, keep those prayers coming. Bless you! It just seems I’m able to finally get my feet firmly on the ground and another round begins in the boxing arena. That is why today I am going for a hike with my hiking boots and camera even though I feel just like curling up and sleeping forever. Life is very difficult at times, which you know, and we who are of the Light must must must keep going. I will get my equilibrium back today. I will. Fresh air and a very challenging hike and hopefully a glimpse of some fall colors will do the thing. Bless you for taking the time to write. Bless you, dear friend. I Love you! ❤

      1. Oh, I hope you found some brilliant colors, Amy. The prayers will keep coming, no worry there. And yes, I know just what you mean about everything happening over and over again. What a horrible way it is to live, but we are both survivors in that ring. Life has a way of keeping us going, shutting us down when it is necessary, and then getting back up for that next round. Your hike sounds like such a great way to regain equilibrium that I can only wish for memories of some of mine to come over me. There is something about the woods that always gave me Peace of Mind, all the natural cathedrals I found in our own woods — I think you know what I mean there.

        I left a note for George’s daughters on his site, and he is also in my prayers. I have lost several cousins in the past to aneurysms, the last one having been in a medically induced coma for about 10 days before he passed, so I can empathize with the family. He sounds like such a wonderful person and it is now all in God’s Hands. I truly believe in miracles, so I’m praying for a miracle as well as the strength to bear whatever the outcome should be.

        May you now find your Peaceful Serenity, and then carry on unburdened for a long, long time after this setback.
        All my Love, ❤ ❤ ❤

      2. Angie, I did find incredible Beauty that I literally got lost in, forgetting the time and when I did see the time I was astonished. How I need that break of NOW and camera.
        I as an RN know the possibilities with George yet I just will not go there. I pray, I send my friend Love along with his Clan, and I have Faith that he will pull through this. The way he is responding in a medically induced coma is anything but a miracle and if he is doing that, he will be back with us. LOVE can do all things and if there is one thing this man has, is Love.
        I must diligently keep at finding Peace to keep my nerves at bay. This is not the only situation going on in my Life at the moment. I will not let go my Faith that God is in charge and that all situations I will be able to handle with grace and humility. All my Love, Amy ❤

      3. I’m so Happy you found the Peace you needed. Getting out and getting lost in the moment is the very best! I hope we will see some of the photos from that hike.
        I don’t think I ever knew you are an RN, so I wasn’t sure if you knew the medical odds here. I agree with you about Faith and Miracles. If anyone can beat the odds, I also have faith that George will do it. Just didn’t want you to be hurt if it doesn’t work. I firmly believe in miracles, having received several of my own in the past year or so. Each time I pray that a person will never be hurt again I remember that God will not send us more than we can bear, and I’m amazed at all the strong people I’m acquainted with. You are very close to Him or He wouldn’t continue to send you so much to handle. Love and Peace be yours forever. I love you, Angie ❤ ❤ ❤

Yes the man just got engaged and if anything will bring him back that fact alone will! I have so much faith he will be back with us and soon. The support, outpouring of Love and prayers, are astonishing. Working in an SICU I’ve seen Miracles. I’ve seen them, Angie. All things are possible with Love.
