Gone From My Sight: The Dying Experience









Gone From My Sight: The Dying Experience is well known in end of life education as “The Little Blue Book.” This was the first, the primary source, and remains the most widely used patient/family booklet on the signs of approaching death. It also contains Henry Van Dyke’s poem about death.
The biggest fear of watching someone die is fear of the unknown; not knowing what dying will be like or when death will actually occur. The booklet Gone From My Sight explains simply, with no medical terminology,  the normal process of dying and stages of approaching death from disease.
Dying from disease is not like it is portrayed in the movies. Yet movies, not life, have become our role model. Death from disease is not happenstance. It doesn't just occur; there is a process. People die in stages of months, weeks, day and hours. Having this knowledge will help address the fear of death and dying that most of us bring to the bedside of a person approaching death.
Gone From My Sight is literature used to reduce fear and uncertainty;  to neutralize the fear associated with dying. It is designed to help people understand dying, their own or someone else’s.
Use this guideline while remembering there is nothing concrete, all is very flexible. Any one of the signs in this booklet may be present, all may be present, none may be present. For some it will take months for others only minutes.
The most frequently asked question I get from families is “How long?” Gone From My Sight will give as close and accurate an answer to that question as can be provided.

"Gone From My Sight" was given to me to read by hospice, through my dad. My mom found that she has 3 cancers to which 2 are terminal very soon. By the book she is in between the months to weeks category. She had two weeks where she was up walking and even able to take short car trips. Then nearly overnight mom's health went downhill very fast. The booklet provided me a time table to help me notice what's going on now and what to expect in her short future. I'm sure the other 4 booklets that I have just ordered, will help everyone in some way get through the huge change and loss that our family is about to endure.

Recently, my aged mother became suddenly "out of it", and disoriented. I was confused and angry as she was so full of life, sharp minded, and full of "fight" to live just a few weeks prior. I was totally unaware that my Mother was actually in the last stages of death, plus... I was completely uninformed of the "death process" she was going through in her 'God-designed' last days. Dad had been given the "Blue Book" by Barbara Karnes, through the Hospise caring for her, and I fully and completely believe that it was only by the grace of our God and by His design, that I began reading it just 3 days before my wonderful Mother died. This small short-read pamphlet was without a doubt, the most profound, jaw-drapping "read/information" I have had the opportunity to be introduced to, in my 60+ years of life. Without a doubt, I witness to you that my Mother precisely followed the stages outlined in this booklet. Just days before our Mother died, my Brother and I read this short book, and we both FULLY and TOTALLY agreed... it was as if our dying Mother had "read the book" and was following the book, step by step to her death... to the letter! I cannot thank you enough for the comfort and knowledge we aquired just in time to KNOW what was happening BEFORE it actually happened. May our God richly bless you for providing this "last hour" information for mankind! With the highest regard, and greatest thankfulness possible, I send this review to so many others in NEED of this knowledge. This short book is a MUST read for all! Bill in Phoenix, Arizona
