I'll be leaving this website, it's just too painful. My dad passed away during the early morning hours on Thursday.
He had been staying for a few days at a nursing home thru the hospice we were using. It was called a respite program to give the care givers a break for a few days. But my father was a very combative senior with dementia. And they over medicated him on Wednesday to make the transport back to the house easier. I saw him Wednesday after work and he was like a zombie from the drugs. I think basically he died from an overdose.
It's a mixed blessing I guess. One the on hand he was 93, had become more bedridden and as a result there was the daily clean ups of poop and urine in the bed. He had some dementia. So would he have wanted to continue to live that way.
I know my brother and I were getting very worn down from the daily routine. But I miss him alot.
This group was a good source of information and support. I want to thank you all. Take care everyone.
