Default Rapid decline

Just a quick note to let everyone know Bill's battle with this horrible disease is coming to an end, and he will soon be in a better place.

He is in a hospice house which is a wonderful facility. We had to take him to the hospital last Sunday and from there he was brought here. On Monday he indicated he no longer wanted to use the PEG tube. They are keeping him comfortable and have embraced him using the Triligy 24/7 as long as it helps to keep him comfortable.

This is so hard!

Alama , I am so sorry about Bill's decline. I know how hard this is for you. I am going through the same thing with Ralph and his progression picking up speed. It is so hard to accept. My thoughts and prayers are with you.
