Sad news

Ron Woollatt 1921-2007

I have to report sadly that my father-in-law Ron Woollatt passed away on Wednesday 13th June, in hospital. He was 86 and he'd been ok , if frail till about 3 weeks ago, when he was rushed to hospital with breathing problems. Vulnerable to infection, he was isolated and his breathing improved somewhat. However he suffered periods of confusion and refused to eat or drink, pulling out his drips and not keen to move from his bed. For the final days he was moved to a ward in the hopes that company would pick him up. But on the Wednesday night, the nurse turned her back for 5 minutes and in that time he slipped away from us.
He will be sadly missed by all.

Hi Sue,

Only just read this post, strange, its dated 19th June, the day my Mum died.

I have never been close to someone dying before, maybe it is common to refuse food and drink? my Mum didnt have anything for weeks.

I am sorry for your loss, hope your husband is coping OK.
My sympathies to you and your family.
