There once was a man named Steve
And while all his friends did grieve.
The smile on his face and him being in the right place,
In his loving soul we believe.
update: it doesnt seem like steve has much time left. he is off the ventilator, his lungs are pretty damaged from being on it for so long, and for now he is on alot of morphine and the nurses and just trying to keep him as comfortable as possible for the time being. after having the tubes removed today, he was able to ask for and receive information about his condition and prognosis and communicate his wished for after his passing. ill post more information as it comes and there will also be information here: http://stevenelsonpdx.blogspot.com/
