We have had a true warrior just lose his battle with leukemia today. David Peeples died around noonish on January 4th.
David was ready—he was so tired of being in pain. He hesitated to take too much pain medicine because it made him loopy, he said.
I saw him on Wednesday night, trying to get him to take pain medicine but he wanted to watch the Baylor Sugar Bowl game instead. (Men and their football!).
The nurse was to give him some pain meds as soon as the game was over.
David and Janie McPhail were there about 11:30 but I have not spoken with them since they saw David.
Anyone who was keeping in touch with David knows how he was ready to be out of pain. It was so difficult for David to give up control though, as he had always been so independent. At least, David is no longer suffering.
