Topic: Update on my Dad
After a courageous 7 year battle with this cancer our handsome loving father, husband and grandfather Mr Punna Singh Hayre passed away peacefully in hospice on September 19th 2012. In the last few months after having had an external stent placed and paracentsesis procedure done, my father had been in and out of the hospital numerous times. He would be in hospital for a week or two then come home, develop an infection and would be right back in the hospital. He did not have any time to recover between infections. He was fed up of going to the hospital repeatedly and wanted to be at home, at one point he leftthe hospital and started walking home. He said his appetite had completely diminished and he had no interest in eating food. He started using morphine for pain control in the last few weeks, something he had never used before, this medication had some very undesirable side effects. In the end he stopped eating and stopped drinking and slowly faded away over the course of about 13 days. We find comfort in that we stood beside him every step of the way and helped him in anyway possible. In the end he said he had made his peace with God and was ready to go and he did go. We did his cremation on Sept 23rd 2012. We are very proud of him, he never gave up until it became too much, he fought till the end. I miss him very much he was my best friend, i hope to see him again one day. Love you Dad always and forever.
