I blogged a few posts back about the acquaintance that started the whole outing thing to my mom. Let me give some backstory now. This man was in good health until January. He was diagnosed with cancer of the lymph nodes mid-January. He continued tormenting and hurting people, including myself. The issue started long before my mom knew at the beginning of February when he first made his comments to my mom's good friend. The friend of my mom's kept it a secret for a month or so until they were able to talk. Once I found out I was doing damage control seeing what I could do, and was very successful at making sure this guy was put in his place for outing me.
This guy began undergoing chemo at the end of February. Every update that I got from friends and other people said that he was doing well. Last weekend, last Saturday, he was put into a medically induced coma. I found out Wednesday evening after I made my post that he was experiencing a traumatic coma as it was described to me where he basically was not in a resting state like he should have been. My friend described it to me that he "looked like he was being punished by God," and that was somewhat the words I needed to hear at the moment. News came about 11:40, 20 minutes after the man died this morning.
I was surprised since it was so sudden, and all of this has happened so quickly. I can't help but say it I don't feel too bad about it. While death is not a good thing, and I certainly didn't wish it on him. I'm neutral. This man hurt so many friends, as well as family members. I feel relieved that he can no longer hurt other people.
