My dad fought a long battle since his accident on October 5th. I had to make the hardest decision of my life last night. He wasn't responding to the meds and just was dramatically going downhill. His body had
decided to shut down. They put him on morphine to keep him comfortable through the night. As of 7:20, he is now in a better, pain-free, place. May he rest in peace.
