My Dad has always been stubborn but at the turn of the year, he was taken by ambulance to Hospital.
He was assessed in A&E, ultimately being moved to the ICU shortly afterward.
My Dad had sepsis which unfortunately became septic shock, with ridiculously low blood pressure and complete kidney failure.
My Brother and I made the heartbreaking decision to withdraw medical intervention and make him comfortable until the end.
The staff at the ICU are amazing. I cannot fault them in any way. There is one nurse to each patient and they are so very kind. I would have to say they're a different "calibre" of nursing staff.
For how they treated my Dad, my family who had to say goodbye and myself I must say "thank you", but it doesn't seem enough.
So, Thank you, Thank you, Thank you......
