Necrotizing enterocolitis is a nasty disease that often attacks premature or immunocompromised infants. Bacteria literally eats holes through the intestine, causing multiple perforations. The only solution is to surgically remove the damaged intestine and a buffer zone of healthy tissue that may contain the bacteria but not yet show signs of necrosis (tissue death.) Unfortunately, sometimes the only thing they can do is close up the wound and allow the infant to die in his/her parents arms, because so much intestine is damaged that complete surgery would be futile.

Oh man.... I'm praying for the guy right now. I'll hold to the belief that the little girl is with her mother now, but that's got to be small consolation for the father and rest of the family.

It's been a rough week for many of my friends.
-> Two of my buddies got dumped recently (both out of the blue);
-> Two puppies of a very good friend of mine were attacked by a coyote (one died, the other is in rough shape);
-> A coworker's son was hit in the head with a golf ball causing swelling in his brain (he's been in an induced coma now for almost 3 weeks);
-> A friend of mine just told me her husband is cheating and she's getting divorced;
-> Another pal lost his job recently, after just getting married;
-> A friend of my Mother's just died;
... The list goes on.

I know life goes in ebbs and flows, but with the recent devastation in the southern USA, the September 11 anniversary, and many more events throughout the world happening daily, I'm starting to realize just how easy my life actually is; but also how fragile it can be.

I was starting to get a bit down myself, (through osmosis I guess), until I was reminded by a clean-up crew member in New Orleans, whom I saw on the news, that life does indeed go on.

The crewman was sweeping some garbage off the street and stopped his work for a second to yell to the camera "We'll be back up and running in time for Mardi Gras! We'll see you then!". I mean, look how motivated this guy is after going through what he just did! Wow!

Now, the story that TedTAce posted was truly heart-braking, and my heart goes out to the Torreses whom I am sure are suffering unimaginable grief with the loss of Susan.

But the topic of this thread is "The Life Just F-ing Sucks Thread ". ...and to that topic I yell BULLSHIT!

Yeah, life's tough, and sometimes it feels like every day can be a test of perseverance, but it's those who battle on who my true heroes. I'm not just talking about the Helen Kellers or the Terry Foxes of the world; I'm also talking about the Jason Torreses and anonymous clean-up workers of the world who are battling on determined to rebuild and persevere whatever life has to offer them.

I am a firm believer that what does not kill you, makes you stronger.
I guess I just needed a bit of reminding.

My hats go off to those people.
We should all be more like you.

G

I would have added a 'sometimes' if the topic size would have allowed it.
Hell, compared to many others, I have a GREAT life. I'm not rich, good looking, nor do I have the wind at my back; but I have a house, a car, a wife and two incredible kids, and most importantly a means to keep everything going so long as I choose to continue to excel at work.

I know I often come off as VERY jaded around here, and I deserve that reputation. I just wanted to share the fact that on the RARE occasion I do find a story that touches me profoundly.

Ted,
Despite your posts, I know you're not a jaded man.  Wink

Your post reminded me that once in while, we just need to be appreciative of the fact that we woke up on the right side of the ground this morning. Not all of us have it so well.

Cheers.
G

Well doesn't that just suck  Sad

I read that story about the girl and so impressed the baby stayed alive. I truly hoped it would have kept on fighting.

RIP both mom and baby.

Puts things into prospective when you read all this.

The next time we moan or complain about some petty thing, we should just remember how lucky or fortunate we actuallly are.

RIP to mom and baby.

It sure as hell sucks if your wife and child die and you've still got a medical bill of more than $400k after insurance.

I thought it was bad enough for the people in the hurricane zone who lost their homes but couldn't afford the home insurance and were left with nothing.

I read about that yesterday.. It's definately sad..

Everyone, do what you can in the world to help people. Try to make someone's day a little less $hitty if you can..

I'm at college now, and am on a 4-hr break between classes.. I Was sitting in K building, some girl went to the payphone and called for a ride.. she was obviously crying, sad, and very unhappy about something.. Could hear it, see it, it was right there.. I went and grabbed some paper towels (in absence of tissues) so she could wipe her face or blow her nose or whatever.. When I gave them to her, her face turned from one of apparent sadness and lonliness to a smile of happiness, that someone notices she was down and cared enough to do something.

Just be nice to people. You never know when you might wish someone could be nice to you..

Engaged means nothing. And seeing as you mentioned you were helping a chick...your guy crackback makes no since. Nice going though Coz errrrrr Chris. Oh ,and one who wears pink shirts and wanted to wear a Hawiian Shirt to an MLB game shouldn't be questioning somone else's sexuality.

Imagine how happy she'd have been, had Airlinelover taken her out for a root beer.
