Husband's grandfather dying

Postby Seicho » Thu Dec 05, 2013 7:09 am

Hello all,

My husband's grandfather Ieuan Ellis is dying. He suffered a fall the day before his birthday in February this year, and because of spinal injuries was not moved and from this he ended up with a bedsore, a bedsore that wasn't helped to heal properly. He's now at home in his bed with sepsis, they have taken all his medication from him more or less and are waiting for the inevitable. They're not even covering his pain or or making sure he can have some rest. He has started to hallucinate and has become aggressive, very aggressive indeed. He is a World War 2 veteran and was in Normandy and his hallucinations and nightmares are very much centred around the war. Things are drawing out quite a bit, he is a strong man and no one expected him to last this long. I am very much disturbed by his very unpleasant soon to be last days. It bothers me very much that he's so far away from reality now and is in both physical and emotional pain to this degree.

Please, if you have the time and energy, send whatever you can, prayers, mantras, he needs everything he can get. That war was horrible and it seems all his traumas of past experiences and the things he had to do in that situation are coming back to life for him.

Thank you very much.

May Mr. Ellis and all beings be well, happy and peaceful. May Mr. Ellis get the medicine and the care he needs to rest his body and mind. May he be completely at peace. May he be calm. May he be free of all pain and discomfort. May he directly see his pure nature and rest.

Thank you :heart: I can tell you he's been sleeping more or less constantly for about 24 hours now which is a welcome change. I hope he is more peaceful in his sleep than in his woken state.
