Brainhell at rest

I was just sitting here with my arm in a sling (sprained shoulder and bicep, long story), grumping to myself about the aching when I went to Brainhell's site to check on his progress. He died last night, in the evening, with his family and friends by his side. The past year's posts had shown a slow descent towards this day. I cried when I read about his caregiver problems, his pain, and his love for his family. His whole blog should be made into a book so all people can see the degradation, the pain, and the sadness he and his family had to endure; but also the intelligence, patience, and the nobility of spirit this man shared with us on a day to day basis. I am glad the ALS has finally let go, and he is no longer in pain. Yet, I will still miss him.
