for privacy reasons I haven't spoken the details of Dad's decline here. but the last few years have been heartbreaking for the family.
the final insults to his body took him to Elyria Memorial Hospital's e.r. his needs were such that he was transferd to University Hospital in Cleveland where he receivd excellent care for a week. but it was all too much. after careful deliberation I pickd a nursing home but when I relayd that information to his primary doctor I was informd a hospice was the appropriate choice.
he died on Leap Day.
