So sad and sorry for this news. You and your family have done miracles already with Jesse and he knows that. What a blessing you were, each for the other. My prayers continue... much love to you and your family.

As others have said, your willingness and ability to share all this while going through it is amazing and inspiring. It is yours and Jesse's greatest gift to many.

So sorry to hear the latest news. Even though it goes against logic I'm still hoping for a positive outcome and continuing to direct my positive thoughts and energy toward Jesse and the family. Come on Jesse.

Wish I had Jesse's ability to see good in everyone. I think I've become a bit jaded over the years.

Still saying my prayers. Still wiping a few tears.

so sorry to hear this.... I cannot find the words to express the feelings I have right now. it's more than sadness. Much more. I still think there is some hope, maybe a miracle happens. I keep on praying for Jesse and Grateful11 family.

Thanks for telling us a little bit about Jesse. He sounds like a great kid that has brought a lot of good to your family and those who know him. I'm so very sorry it has come to this. I'm sure this must be the most emotionally wrenching situation anybody ever goes through. I hope that posting here has been cathartic for you and know that we're all pulling for you and your family.

"In science it often happens that scientists say, 'You know that's a really good argument; my position is mistaken,' and then they would actually change their minds and you never hear that old view from them again. They really do it. It doesn't happen as often as it should, because scientists are human and change is sometimes painful. But it happens every day. I cannot recall the last time something like that happened in politics or religion." (1987) -- Carl Sagan

I'm going to do an update now as I'm not sure when I'll feel like doing
another. It's been decided to remove Jesse's life support sometime
this afternoon. It's ripping my heart out typing this but all the things
that have said have helped me more than you know. I will let
everyone know later today when my little ray of sunshine is no
longer with us. Thanks to all for helping Jesse and his family through
this ordeal. I hope and pray that none of you ever have to go
through this.

We are actually waiting on the head heart Dr here to get here because
he wants to be here. He is so upset with Duke Hospital for not taking
Jesse when there was a small window in which to get him there but that
time has come as passed.

I don't have words for this. The best I can do is relate to something that was similar in my life, yet not similar at all so I can only imagine. I thank you for sharing this with us.

The Cord

We are connected,
My child and I, by
An invisible cord
Not seen by the eye.

It's not like the cord
That connects us 'til birth
This cord can't been seen
By any on Earth.

This cord does it's work
Right from the start.
It binds us together
Attached to my heart.

I know that it's there
Though no one can see
The invisible cord
From my child to me.

The strength of this cord
Is hard to describe.
It can't be destroyed
It can't be denied.

It's stronger than any cord
Man could create
It withstands the test
Can hold any weight.

And though you are gone,
Though you're not here with me,
The cord is still there
But no one can see.

It pulls at my heart
I am bruised...I am sore,
But this cord is my lifeline
As never before.

I am thankful that God
Connects us this way
A parent and child
Death can't take it away!

Although I have never posted before I am compelled to add that many who do not post regularly were following your family's story and adding our prayers. We are all just visitors here waiting for our return home. May Jesse gratefully find his way home and shine his light for you when you return.

I just woke up and the first thing, I checked here and found the news.

I was already so sadden by the obstacles you had been running into and I didn't think I could feel any sadder, but right now I am overcome with my sadness.

My spirit joins with all the others who have become enwrapped in the fight to preserve Jesse's life.

The spark of humanity, the love, that allowed us to share in your struggle must now warm your heart and add to your resilience in dealing with this painful outcome.

A piece of Jesse is now embedded in our hearts as well as yours. It will keep him alive in our memories.

Your friend,

Gene

Grateful11, I wish I had the words to express my sorrow and sympathy. Obviously you, Jesse and family have all been tremendously fortunate to have had each other for these years. Your handling of the most difficult and heart-rending situation possible for a parent has been and remains an inspiration to those of us who have been privileged to share some tiny part of it with you.

My tears and condolences to you and yours.

Wow. As a parent, I honestly don't know what to say. And I feel as though I'm cheating by using someone else's words, but $tevie truly nailed it when she said If Jesse's time on earth was to be so short, I am glad he was blessed to have spent it with you and your family. No parent should ever have to go through what you have. Our prayers and good wishes continue...

Grateful11, I was out of town this weekend with iffy internet access. I tried to keep up with what is going on whenever I had a decent signal but was not able to post.

I'm so sorry to hear that it has come to this. You have gone through every parent's worst nightmare and are making decisions that no parent should have to make. Thank you for allowing us here to be a part of that. Thank you for sharing and letting us express our support, sadness, and hope with you. I hope that the words everyone has typed here have helped provide some solace to you and your family.

Peace be with you, yours, and especially Jesse.
