I just found out the my uncle Dennis had a series of strokes last Sunday. The strokes have left him paralyzed and on a respirator. After coming out of an induced coma yesterday, Dennis removed the respirator. He has decided that he does not want the hospital to provide extraordinary measures and he is ready to die. The doctor anticipates he will pass away in the next week.
He was raised Catholic and I do not know the current state of his faith, but I pray that God will use this time to bring Dennis to a state of grace and prepare him for heaven.
