Oh gosh, Judy, I'm so sorry. Clostridium difficile is a very bad bug, and is a very common killer in nursing homes and extended care facilities. It attacks those who are already sick or have a compromised immune system. That's what finally killed my father after three different cancers, and it's almost impossible to fight successfully. Please, please, please tell Paula they made the right decision. I know your heart is aching terribly, I know they feel the same way, and I wish all of us could do something to ease your pain. I'm happy you're going to go say goodbye, because he will know you're there. Please take care of YOU!
I keep forgetting to come to this board. My deepest condolences on your very deep loss. He must have been a man I'd have wanted to meet. A sense of humor is hard to find, especially when he kept it through his trials.
