Board magic vibes needed......

post #1 of 40
Thread Starter 
My brother contacted me about his father in law.

This is an excerpt from his letter to me:

Susie,

Just an update on Jill's dad's health. He's gone downhill quickly. Sunday night, they had to begin constant suction of his lungs.

This morning at 1:15am, we got a call from Judy (Jill's sister) who said the nursing home was sending him to Trumbull. He couldn't breathe very well.

When we got to the hospital this morning around 2:00am, the ER doctor told us he had only 30 minutes left. Looked and sounded terrible and has aspiration pneumonia.

During the period between 2:30am and 4:00am, he actually stopped breathing twice for about 60 seconds each time. When we would go to notify a nurse, he'd take a big breath and start shallow breathing again.

It's just a matter of time now. His BP is slowing but steadily declining, was 50/30 last time I knew, but his heart still had good rythym. Respiration very shallow.

I'll let you know how things happen.
Love, Tom


It's all very sad......my sister in law's dad is in his 80's, and has been in a nursing home for the past 4 years. Jill has had to watch him deteriorate, and now this.......we all know his time is near, but if we could all just pray that it's an easy passing, if there is such a thing...........

Your right Fwan, I did say that.....I checked with my brother, and I had it wrong. I knew he was older, but I guess he is 92. So is her mother.
