My grand son is about 21 months old . He was diagnoised with "West Syndrome" . most likely he will die before he is 3
how do you deal with knowing that he will die in the next year. and he lives in pain every day.
I thought that being a male rape victom was hard to deal with .
but watching a small child suffer and I can't help him is the hardest thing that i have ever had to do . I feel helpless and my heart is breaking

Michael,

I'm so sorry to hear about your grandson. The parents of this child must be devastated. I couldn't even imagine what they must be feeling. I would suggest that you spend as much time with him (and them) as possible. Make every moment as special as you can so he (they) knows that his grandfather loves and cherishes him (as every child deserves).

Stories like this give me a different perspective on my own life. I spend way too much time complaining and wasting precious time I could be spending on things that really matter.

My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

Brian

That really is a heart breaker. I wish I had something helpful to say. PM me if you need someone to talk to. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family as well.

Michael,

How sad, My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. And I thought I had problems. Nothing compared to what you are dealing with.

Your pain is unimaginable and you have my best hopes. Make sure that every oppurtunity you have to spend time with your grandchild is used and fulfilled to the best of your ability so you can be grateful for the time that you had with him. I would also suggest, if you like to listen to country music, listening to Sherrie Austin's song "Streets of Heaven".
