Thanks so much for all your comments and emails about Charlie’s dad. It was a tough week. It looked like he was getting better, but then he had a stroke on Thursday. When the doctor’s determined he couldn’t swallow anymore, rather than prolonging things, Charlie’s mom wanted to take him home. Hospice brought a bed to their house on Friday and that’s where he is now, which seems to have made Mom a lot happier.
He’s a very tough man and he’s not going easy, so right now it’s a waiting thing. Mom is surrounded by lots of family for support and we’re over there several times a day. With lots of medication, Dad’s as comfortable as he can be given the situation.
Thanks again for all your emails and posts. He’s had a good long life and no one wants him to suffer or live like this any longer. We’re just hoping and praying it’s over with soon.
