My father passed away tonight. He was 90. He died painlessly in his bed from kidney disease. He had suffered from kidney failure for the past 7 1/2 years, caused by Abdominal Aorta Aneurysm surgery. They were Installing a stent, and his artery was so fragile that it burst. Normally, if you aren't in a hospital when this happens, you will die in a short period of time. My Dad was in the ICU for over 30 days, but survived. His condition had deteriorated over the past few weeks, and it got to the point where I was forced to make the decision to remove him from dialysis, which he had endured for 7+ years three times a week. He was under hospice care for the last 10 days of his life, and I did my best to care for him and Mom. Mom passed away in 2012. I had a crisis of conscience as to whether I was doing this for him or for me. It had been really difficult to get him up in the mornings to go to dialysis, but a couple of weeks ago, when he heeded to be carried from the transport vehicle, it became clear that it was his time "for rest". There will be no funeral services. He made a decision several years ago to engage the Nautilus Society, who will handle the cremation and scatter his ashes at sea. Thank you in advance for your thoughts.
