7. She's dying, and pretty quickly too...
I really suspect she may have already passed.

11. Peggy could you be any more insensitive? ?
you and janmichael sound like you're gravedancing ...

this makes me very upset.


I pray AG doesn't read your comments.

12. I think AG
has been reading my posts for so many years, that she will understand that I am NOT gravedigging. I understand that you are closer to her than I am, and protective. However, she is more than welcome to read anything I have written...and I seriously doubt it will cause any hurt feelings between us.

13. discussing death is not grave dancing
to me that is when somebody takes some kind of pleasure in the demise of another, neither of those posts did that

two of AlienGirl's last three posts here were about facing her impending death

our culture tends to deny and hide the subject, I found her courage to talk about it here very inspiring

15. HER courage to talk about it was truly inspiring.
Having others say, 'well, she's probably already dead' = not so good, to put it mildly.

14. Peggy, I know you mean well but
posting your own feeling that she may have already died isn't an encouragement to someone in her struggle. I know that you were an RN. My RN friends who work in oncology tell me that most patients want more than anything for people to offer encouragement regardless of how dire the diagnosis is. Most don't want to be written off and that's how your post reads.

Some would ask why does it matter what we write on DU. It matters because in the past people have printed off well wishes and forwarded them. I wish that DUers would keep that in mind when posting in such threads.
