Sat Apr 30, 2016, 10:22 PM

Long-time DU member RushIsRot is in the hospital.

He is in the CCU at Cox South in Branson, MO. His heart is weakened to the point that his cardiologist had recommended hospice last week, but he was life-flighted back to the CCU and is not expected to live. He is DNR.

His son has flown in to be with him. I hope to see him again on Monday.

He gave me permission to post this information because he has enjoyed being a member of the DU forum. I will miss him terribly, and I don't think I'm the only one.

I hope that RushIsRot's heart grows three sizes, and if that can't happen, that he is blissfully comfortable and at peace.

76. I always wold have liked to see posts about people passing - which he has not, and long may he not

where there would be a separate members thread for each person who has passed or is ill and That way
1) if someone is gone fora while they will know what happened
2) for people to post about that person
3) if the person was sick and recovers they can see the posts in one area
4) if a person passes, the family can be sent a link to the posts.
5. favorite posts about that person can be reposted there.
