No need to thank me. I really didn't do anything... just happened to have an old friend in the right place.

I know we all hope Bob will be comfortable and content. It sure would be nice to have him post again.

303 Re: Hey Bob on 10/26/2016, 10:18 am

I really didn't do anything.

No you provided Bob with a path. It will not be easy, but you started his journey with a sane option.

None of this is going to be easy. The damn loss of mobility just crushes your spirit when facing all the other things which are on his plate. There are going to be bad days.

I cannot and will not judge here . . . none of us have a clue as to what it is like to take this journey, therefore, I am reduced to waiting for Bob's judgment as it is he who will decide . . . . sad? Absolutely, but to judge I cannot . . . just cannot . . . . hate it so much.

I hate that it happens to just about anybody Linda. I've seen it happen to so many good guys, and gals. Sad

Of course. I hear you and feel the same, Tel. Life just sucks in some respects, no way around it.

About all that could be relayed to me because of hippa concerns was that he is unresponsive. He may be discharged today to his gf's daughters house. If anyone is able to visit please update us. Otherwise I should know when he's transferred... but little more. This sure is a helpless feeling.

313 Re: Hey Bob on 10/28/2016, 9:37 am

I just saw your post and immediately called his gf. Since I'm a friend and receiving this info from her I don't feel HIPPA is a problem.

They called her and his cousin this morning and they are both up there. He has been unresponsive since yesterday but restless and off all meds except morphine has been started and they were told it's either hours or a day or two until his suffering may be over. This is what was relayed to me with tears in my eyes.

Thank you... this is so hard.

No idea if it is a progression of his cancer or maybe an infection. He was extremely alert when I saw him.

I don't know either Joani, but as you can tell from previous posts I am throughly disgusted with solaris. He was alert the last time I saw him other than 30 minutes after they gave him 3 pills.

May the road rise up to meet you.
May the wind be always at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face;
the rains fall soft upon your fields
and until we meet again,
may God hold you in the palm of His hand.

Wishing you safe and gentle passage to whatever adventure awaits you next, Bob.

My heart is heavy.

The world is about to become a less interesting place.

But, I have a feeling that Teo is anxiously waiting on his friend to tell him that he now knows the real truth about 9/11.

I have felt very uncomfortable about the position Bob has been in for the last month. Something is very fishy here. I am outraged. The cancer was stable with his immune therapy, and he was posting and reactive until it appears he was doped into oblivion to fill a bed. I worked for the public guardian in Illinois and saw elder abuse and neglect routinely where humans were stockpiled like cords of wood. This was thirty years ago, but in principle some things do not change. I hope it is not too late to get him the hell out of there and allow him to get to his home whether it is for a week a few days or two years. If you take hope away and drug a person into submission they do give up.

Really.... I am so glad I checked this thread this morning. I am at a loss for words. All I could do is stop/pause, close my eyes, and pray for Bob and all of his caregivers and helpers, which I just did. Sometimes that is all that is left.

I hold all of you who visited and/or helped Bob in high-esteem. We may fight and argue over in the Politics Section, but those sentiments change in situations like this.

I agree and I'm pretty damn outraged. My wife said what the hell happened we saw him at his house a week before the surgery, he walked, he talked and laughed. I saw him two weeks ago although he didn't walk, he talked and laughed until they drugged him up. I let several things go with a snf/nursing home in gb when my sister and bil were in there and died, but I think they need investigating.

Y'all might be right about his medical care.

I have no way of judging that.

Bob told us many times about watching his mother whither away over a long period of time in a nursing home.

He told us that being confined in a situation like that would be his greatest nightmare, and he would prefer taking his own life to dying like that.

My impression (and that's all it is - I never met Bob personally, so I hope I don't offend anyone) is that he caught a glimpse of what he thought the future held for him, and he chose not to go down that path, and instead just shut down.

Maybe, I'm just telling myself that to feel better.

I don't know.

Sal....I spent several hours with Bob on Saturday. The first 30 minutes of my visit was while he was in therapy...occupational. We went back to his room and talked...he was fine. However, it took two assistants to get him in the bed. His cousin came to visit and Yella was there. Very nice visit.....hard to imagine he is now unresponsive.
