Father in law passed away last night shortly after we visited him in the ICU. Complications from diabetes and being on dialysis, coupled with a bout of carbon monoxide in the system due to oxygen issues. Also dealing with low blood pressure and congestive heart failure as well. Visting someone on their deathbed who is mentally there but body is breaking down and intubated and can’t talk is a shitty way to say goodbye.
I don’t know how ICU healthcare workers deal with that day in and day out. Much respect to people in that line of work.
