Talmadge ForesterFebruary 7, 2010 1:40 am Georgia, The Bad Days
When we first started this journey we had to rush home on an early trip because my grandfather, Talmadge Forester, was in the ICU. As you know he recovered well enough that he was put into a nursing home where they had him walking around. This month he started a rapid decline. Last week he was put back onto hospice care while in the nursing home. My brother, Tim, drove down this weekend so he could visit with him for a last time. I think he will be glad that he came. My mom and my brother went to visit with him yesterday and went back again tonight. They left him at about 10:00PM and my mom knocked on my window a little after 12:00AM to let me know that she had received a phone call from hospice and that her dad had died.
For those of you who are religious who read this blog, please say a prayer for my mom. There will not be any services held for her father. My grandfather was suffering for the last few weeks and I know that we are all glad that his suffering is over. He is having a party in heaven tonight with all of his brothers and sisters and his wife. Rest in Peace grandpa!
