Last night we got a call that Ralph was not doing well. He fell Sunday, became disoriented and was placed on morphine. Yesterday they said they though he would pass within 48 hours. Linda and I went to the nursing home last night and stayed till 11ish and then came home- hour drive. Today he is having trouble breathing so is in a chair sitting up (they brought in a recliner). Haven’t heard anything else today. Linda and I talked about bringing Ralph home to die but last night we made the decision to leave him where he is- he is close to family which suddenly have appeared and it is necessary to have those people say goodbye. This process sucks and it would be ok with me if I never go through it again (wishful thinking!). Prayers are always welcome.
