Had forgotten until got back on here and read my last post that it was November, which means it was after he was in the hospital in October, that we had the breathing tube “incident”, but this last one was real, not just an “incident”; he wasn’t able to come off it this time until we finally decided to just take him off; mixed emotions, sure, but knew he didn’t want to “exist” like that; don’t really think he ever would have wanted it in the first place but certainly not to have to stay on it, which is what they were saying this time, with a trach, sure didn’t think he’d want that and certainly after they were saying he wouldn’t be able to stay local if they did; had a nice lunch with my uncle, but then learned later after getting back (not just when got back but later) that while gone some who’d stayed with him while gone (think he just hated to put me through it) that it had seemed that he had said he just wanted to go home, which we finally – finally, long story – did and he did seem to be so glad; wish had done it earlier but it’s done now

I'm a transplant, born up north but raised in the middle, now I'm down here where you don't see too many snowflakes; I'll probably post just about as often (here at least)
