Update on Carol


Dear American Bedu readers, Carols has gone into a sharp decline since yesterday.

We have had an update from her son:

Carol has made it through the night and her family and friends remain by her bedside.

She is at peace, in no pain, and preparing for her eternal rest. She feels your prayers. Thank you.

  13. Carol,

    Some folks see things as they are and meekly ask why. You dreamt of things that never were and boldly asked why not (George Bernard Shaw)

  16. To her son, Jon. You cannot imagine how important the face and daily posts of Carol have been to us. She really helped us solve so many women’s issues that were getting out of control…especially when she got caught up in them as well in her own marriage. It has been quite a journey.

  17. Dearest Carol
    You have touched so many lives in such a huge way. Like the ripples created by a stone tossed in a lake your life has reached out in many ways to touch people’s hearts and minds. Safe journey and your darling is waiting there to be reunited with you.

  18. May your family know just how much you helped us and made your stories public so we wouldn’t feel like we were the only ones!! Bless you and your loved ones.

  19. Best wishes for crossing over. You helped me so much as I struggled to understand Saudi culture. I thank you for your generosity and spirit.

  20. Reading these touching comments, I just had to message again. I am taken back to when my father passed six months ago. I was so glad that me, Mum and sister were with him. God bless her family and comfort them. God give you peace, Carol…. May he wrap you in his love and mercy and reward you gor the pain you have suffered with eternal joy and peace. Ah, I want to cry….

  21. Sean…

    I know what you mean. I have cried a few times already.

  22. I wish for your joyful rest Carol from his disease and when you are in your beloved husband’s arms you will know true peace….

  34. Dear Carol,
    I am praying hard for you Carol. Your courage is always with me no matter what. You will ALWAYS have a special place in my heart-always. You are such an inspiration and have touched people far and near. You are beacon of hope to all, both East and West. You have truly brought together everyone. We will all carry the torch for you; tolerance, compassion, understanding differences, and finding a common bond with others who have a different background from ours.

    To Carol’s family. You are so lucky to have her as mother, mother -in-law, grandmother, and aunt. I pray for courage during the difficult and painful time.

  35. I will reveal my name if the one was read to her. Jacey is Jennifer. We normally correspond by email.

  37. Dear Carol

    I’ve recently been following your blog and it helped me a lot to understand the culture and people over there. And I was pleased to know your story. Thanks for your great achievement in your life and this blog. It’s actually helping a lot of people in the world.
    Your pain is over now you can rest in Heaven forever with your loving husband.

  38. Dear Carol,
    I am so saddened to hear of your condition worsening. It is late for me to wish for miracles, but you can leave this earthly life knowing all of the good you have done. This blog alone has been an accomplishment of noteworthy proportions. I read your written thoughts long before I came to Saudi Arabia and have continued for three years here. I hope that somehow it can be continued in honor of your life.

  39. Sad to hear carols decline. Would like to read update on her last hours. She is constantly in my thoughts. Glad to know that her family and friends are close-by. She is a brave warrior. God bless her.

  40. I’m deeply saddened to read this news. I have only been reading your blog for a few weeks but was touched by your insights and opinions about life in Saudi. It is so refreshing to read your objective views on topics that can so easily become biased towards western culture. Thank you. I hope your blog will continue to be accessible as a testament to your exceptional life and the joy you have brought to your readers. My thoughts are with you and your family. X

  41. “Every soul shall have the taste of death; In the end to us shall you be brought back” (29:57)

    Death can neither be avoided nor can it be delayed. So the question is what have we done to prepare for it?

    While we live in this life, we yearn for this and that but none of these things we can take with us after we depart from this world. The only thing we can take are our deeds.

    As my thoughts and prayers concentrate of dear Carol, I cannot but think how fragile we are, how futile are our differences, how insignificant we really are, how little we have time left. What have we done to prepare for the end?

    Be well, Carol. Wishing you peace and blessings.

  42. The righteous perish, and no one ponders it in his heart; devout men are taken away, and no one understands that the righteous are taken away to be spared from evil. Those who walk uprightly enter into peace; they find rest as they lie in death. — Isaiah 57:1-2

    If we live, we live to the Lord; and if we die, we die to the Lord. So, whether we live or die, we belong to the Lord. — Romans 14:8

  43. I wish she had had a few more years. I’m no stranger to death but yet I wish she was with us a bit… glad to know she is in no pain and at peace

  44. Our prayers are with Carol and her family. May they rejoice in the fabulous life she has had and the know that the information she shared with all through her blog will live on in the lives of the many people she touched.

  45. Death is as sure for that which is born, as birth is for that which is dead. Therefore grieve not for what is inevitable. The body has death, but not the soul. The body sleeps, the soul flies. — Bhagavad Gita

  46. To the family of Carol Fleming:

    I am sorry for your loss and my heart goes out to you.

    She has always had love in this life but now she has found peace.


  47. Rest Carol you have earned it.


  48. I learned a lot from this site and will miss you Carol. God bless you. I am sure a certain desert prince awaits his lady love.

  49. Allah yerhamek. I am so saddened by this news. Hugs to her family and friends.

  50. I have been following this wonderful woman since 2007, she just popped into my head today, so came on to see how she was. So sad, such a sad lost. You will be sadly missed -RIP X
