    I thought if I put this in the regular Beaton link above it might go unnoticed.

    According to Rod's wife, things do not look good ...

    Shit. I hate this. Rod is a good, good man. I'll always fondly recall a great night out to eat in Atlanta in the middle of the 1993 pennant race. Lots of fun.

    I always get a sick feeling in my stomach when I see one of these threads.

    My prayers for everyone.

    This sucks.

    Based on Maria's Facebook post from this afternoon, Rod is very near the end:

    Rod is barely breathing but alive and fighting. He will not win this time.

    Those of you of a mind for such things might say a little prayer for Maria and Rod.

    All the best to the Beatons. PD is a difficult enough issue by itself, not to mention the other things Rod is dealing with which make an already complicated, messy issue worse.

    Wow... Prayers to the family.

    Awful. I'd say I hope it comes to a peaceful end, but it seems a bit late for that.

    I'm getting sick and damned tired of the good people I knew at USA Today all dying.

    Shockey, you put into words the feelings I had when I read this update. Having been through what I went through with my father and his suffering... and my mom's sacrifices and suffering along with it... I wish for Rod and his family a peaceful and pain free conclusion.
