The Vigil...

As death gets closer, many signs of the body shutting down happen....

* he is sleeping all the time
* little to no urine
* no food intake...and very little water
* cooling of the skin
* a purple coloring of the skin

This is a time when one realizes they are not in control of the dying process...but death is near, even though
one can not answer with certainty when...During this vigil, I watch...I comfort...I wait...
Like birth, death comes in its own way, at its own time...
BE WELL..
