UPDATE - Urgent Prayers/Healing Thoughts for GreenMountainBoy02

by: Avilyn

Tue Jan 22, 2013 at 17:46:01 PM EST



Commonmass has a new diary up at GOS; I'm on my phone so this will be brief.

GMB02 is on full life support with slim chance to pull through.  Family is there.  Tomorrow they talk about whether to take him off life support.  Thoughts and prayers to Bill and family.

Update from commonmass in his diary:

His family is coming out from Western Vermont and NY State and northwestern MA. He received the sacrament of Baptism this evening as well as the Anointing of the Sick.

I'd posted a comment in the open thread diary earlier, but in case people don't see it, commonmass's fiance, GreenMountainBoy02 (aka GMB02) at GOS is currently going through a health crisis and in ICU on a respirator.  I wasn't going to diary this initially, but commonmass just posted that he's on his way to the ICU because he's been told GMB02 may die.  The Diary is here:

Update on Kossack GreenMountainBoy02's Health Crisis

If you don't know commonmass (Bill) or GMB02, they are the kindest, sweetest people, who just recently got engaged.  If you can ask for healing in whatever tradition/faith/etc. you are comfortable with, it would be appreciated I'm sure.

Sara R is going to be putting up a Community Quilt diary at GOS for GMB02 sometime between 5-6 Pacific this evening.  

Sara's diary is up now. (2.00 / 26)
I know you'll probably update but here it is :-)

Good to know (2.00 / 22)
I was a little worried that my first diary here was about stuff from GOS, but I figured in this sort of situation, the more spreading of the word the better, so I decided what the hey, purple is pretty forgiving.

It is not verboten to speak of dKos (or other sites)... (2.00 / 27)
what is to be avoided is the DRAMA and flaming from other sites.

This sort of diary is more than welcome, even encouraged. It is geared towards community and caring...and such material always has a place on the Moose.

Thank you for posting..and thank you for the continued updates.

I know that they are both surrounded by love and light and I hope that they BOTH can feel that.

Does the morgue wagon come with the job?


[ Parent ]
Let the energy and thoughts (2.00 / 35)
of all of us reach Commonmass and GreenMountainBoy02, to give them the strength they need to get through this.

Sending positive vibes and prayer their way. (2.00 / 28)


Just because they are posting on a progressive site doesn't make them progressives. - John Allen

Am so sorry to hear this. How terrifying (2.00 / 27)
for both, Prayers, thoughts, and everything else headed their way. Please keep us informed.

Keeping them both very close to my heart. (2.00 / 29)


Ho'oponopono. To make things right; restore harmony; heal.

Thinking of and praying for them both. (2.00 / 25)


Lots of love and prayers for them both. Dammit, they (2.00 / 27)
just found each other!

"Pin your money to your girdle and don't talk to strangers."  My Grandmom's advice when I went away to school.  I don't wear a girdle and have never met a stranger.  Sorry Grandmom!

That was my thought too (2.00 / 26)
That life/god/whatever couldn't be so cruel.  Keeping my fingers crossed.  I'm actually a little hopeful that since there hasn't been an update by commonmass in a while, it means GMB is hanging on.  Positive thoughts.

[ Parent ]
Thanks for keeping us posted Avilyn. I'm thinking back awhile (2.00 / 25)
ago when commonmass was so dejected over no job.  We exchanged thoughts in his diary and I invited him to NC to look around.  They're registered for the love of mike!  Wedding planned.  Just no!

Keeping them both in my thoughts this evening. (2.00 / 26)
This is so sad--I hope the doctors are able to figure out what's going on.

Thoughts and prayers for them both... (2.00 / 28)
Watching (reading) their story unfold has been heartwarming...the joy they have found in each other comes through so very loud and clear.

Hopefully healing will be had and we will be able to continue to read of their journey together.

I am sending (2.00 / 25)
Thoughts and prayers.

There is so much love between both men.

I am envisioning a circle of community love surrounding them and their love.

Peace, Hope, Faith, Love


Sending prayers and positive thoughts their way (2.00 / 25)
Awful news. Rotten people never seem to have bad stuff happen to them, it is always the good ones.

Faith, hope and love (2.00 / 25)
And the greatest of these is love.  (Corinthians 13)

These two embody all three and I pray they will come through this and continue on their life journey together.


I was just reading that verse online (2.00 / 24)
It was part of my parents' wedding vows, and it made me think of commonmass & GMB02 as well.

[ Parent ]
It was part of our wedding vows also (2.00 / 20)
It has gotten us through a lot over the years.  I hope it carries commonmass and gmb02 through this.

[ Parent ]
It touches me, and I hope it touches them, to think of the hundreds of people (2.00 / 19)
all over this country and farther afield who are keeping a vigil right now, hoping and waiting for news. I wonder how many other candles are burning for them at this very moment?

Indeed. I'm going to have to log off soon for the evening (2.00 / 18)
but I will keep them in my thoughts and prayers through the night, that we may wake up to good news.

Prayers (2.00 / 18)
I am praying for healing. For a miracle.  

Every God we all believe in,.. (2.00 / 17)
please make this turn out right.

I went straight to Commonmass' diary on DK (2.00 / 16)
when I got home from work. I found this in the comments from Commonmass.

Probably, he will die. (51+ / 0-)

That's what the team is telling me. His family is coming.

I saw that, but (2.00 / 13)
I'm trying to take the fact that Bill hasn't updated anything   since 2am as a good sign that GMB02 is still hanging on and fighting.  I'm refreshing his comments page over at dKos, so when there's an update I'll let people here know.

[ Parent ]
Thanks Avilyn. I keep checking over there. (2.00 / 14)


"Pin your money to your girdle and don't talk to strangers."  My Grandmom's advice when I went away to school.  I don't wear a girdle and have never met a stranger.  Sorry Grandmom!

[ Parent ]
Me too. (2.00 / 13)
I keep hoping for an update. I am praying for his recovery.

[ Parent ]
I've been stalking his comments page (2.00 / 12)
nothing since last night.  In about a half hour, I leave work, and it'll be a few hours before I get back online between the commute home & the grocery shopping I need to do.  I'll try to keep an eye out while I'm shopping (I promise not to check while I'm driving though).  I really really really want GMB02 to be OK, for both their sakes.

[ Parent ]
Here is the link to the update. (2.00 / 13)
the prognosis is not good. http://www.dailykos.com/story/...

thanks for posting the link, (2.00 / 10)
Smartphones are good inventions but not made for posting diaries.

[ Parent ]
Thoughts, prayers, and desperate hopes to them both. (2.00 / 10)
They will stay in my thoughts.

Come to me in my dreams, and then
By day I shall be well again!
For so the night will more than pay
The hopeless longing of the day.


it is extremely sad (2.00 / 3)
We lift our spirits to these two great people..We lift our prayers.    

Apathy has destroyed human dignity.

still thinking of both men (2.00 / 3)
still hoping for kindness from the universe.  left a message at orange place for them.  holding them in the light.
