After a few days of acting out of character, my father in law took a turn for the worse on a Sunday and was taken by ambulance to another hospital in the area. He stayed there almost 3 weeks, until we were given the devastating diagnosis of Kidney cancer. He was moved to Gervis Pearson, as they were the specialists in the field. It was here that his care was dramatically improved. We were told it was sadly a terminal condition. The care he and us recieved will never ever be forgotten by our family.
They cared not only about him as a patient but us as those who were losing someone they loved. In the end, the visiting hours were 24/7, and the nurses/doctors were like angels. He only lasted another 3 weeks, but the nurses became his friends, despite him suffering from hallucinations, aggression and dementia due to the cancer ravaging his body.
The funeral is next week and we have asked for no flowers only donations to this wonderful ward. I dread to think how his last weeks would have been if he had stayed in the other hospital. So thank you to you all, you gave a chink of light to our darkest hour.
