Meharam Sugrim (Mara)

I visited Meharam today (Oct 1, 2014) at Evergreen House, Lions Gate Hospital, North Vancouver. He looks a little better than when I saw him last in Apr, 2014. He is a lot more verbal now and his body movements are also more than the last time. He did not respond to anything you say and will need more time before he can make eye contact and respond to questions. His care staff says he is improving and that is encouraging. He is not on any medication - just the feeding tube. 

Regards

Marty

 

Meharam is not doing well emotionally and frustrated with lack of mobility.

 

If he was able to use a laptop, he might have liked to post on GNI, it would have motivated him.  

Lying in bed 24/7 and unable to speak properly, for a guy who was very active, would depress anyone.

He is having difficulties accepting his situation, because he might not see any significant improvement.

But we keep telling him, life is hope, especially for his grandkids. They want to continue to see him and to know him.  

 

We had a Fijian friend with inoperative brain cancer, who was stuck in hospital and see no positive future.

Every time we visited, she held my hand tightly  and begged  us to get her a gun.   Obviously we refused, but we suggested to the doctor to increase her meds and she died weeks later.

 

I guess the pain and depression by seeing no positive future, would be too much for anyone to cope.

 

My other friend Patricia died that way with cancer. The last two years of her emails was very hard to read, even now.

I am having coffee with her husband this morning.

Please give my regards to MARA.  I hooked up with him in Queens many years back and he was the nicest guy.  I hope he will get better.
