Scott, I have known Diane and Ray since the early 80's. They are good, kind 
and courageous people. Please convey my thoughts and prayers to Diane and to 
Ray. May he have peace and may Diane have peace as well.

Subject: [nfb-talk] Ray McGeorge Being Transferred to Hospis Care

Greetings Friends, as many of you know, Ray
McGeorge came down with meningitis and was rushed
to the hospital on May 9th.  He has been
unconscious ever since.  Unfortunately, the
meningitis caused several complications including
seizures and a massive stroke.  Ray has been
relatively stable the last couple of weeks but
has shown no signs of improvement.

Ray is a very strong person and very clear about
his wishes.  He has an advanced directive, also
known as a living will.  He has explicitly
expressed the desire that his life not be
extended artificially.  Diane has honored Ray's
wishes and asked that he be taken off the
respirator.  He has been off the respirator for
limited periods but has always been placed back
on.  Additionally, this morning Ray is being
transferred from Kendrid Hospital, which is a
long term acute care facility, to St. John's Hospis.

Quite frankly, we do not know specifically what
the future holds.  Ray has fought this battle as
hard as he knows how.  Without the respirator, we
do not know exactly how Ray will do.  We do know,
however, that we are carrying out his
wishes.  During this very difficult time, we
request your continued thoughts and prayers.
