I woke up at about 5.45 this morning and found a "Whatsapp" message on my Samsung phone. It was from my son. His father-in-law had passed away in the night. Two days earlier, doctors had advised that the family allow them to operate on him to remove the blood clot. After much discussion, they made the heartbreaking decision to let him go and save him the suffering. The blood clot was over half his brain, so the surgery carry great risk. He would be in ICU for a long time. He was also very old, almost 90.
