"We miss him but his suffering is over."
Posted by marshz66 (as ),
My husband James was admitted to Craigavon Area Hospital in April 2020 suffering from a stroke. One of my daughters is in lockdown but my three other daughters were available to go to the hospital.
The first four days Jim was critical and a visit was allowed. After a slight improvement we were not allowed any visits for 9 days. ( This was so difficult but we understood there were rules and regulations. The Doctors and nurses kept in touch by telephone on a daily basis to tell us how Jim was doing. Sometime when Jim was a little bit alert they would face time us. Jim passed away in May 2020 and my daughters were able to be there and spent his last few hours with him, this was very comforting to us as a family as we were always anxious that Jim would pass away alone. The staff phoned us the following day to sympathise with us. How thoughtful was this.
The doctors in A&E were amazing and treated Jim so well getting scans done quickly and doing everything possible. We will always be indebted to the amazing staff in A&E and Ward 3 North. We miss our lovely Jim but his suffering is over.
