There will be a much longer discussion of surgery, etc. at a later date. But, for the moment, I want to get back to the “Why?” question.
My coordinator visited me today and brought me two cards. One from the recipient and/or his wife and the other from his daughter. She let me know that his daughter has never known him to be well. He’s been ill all her life. It’s this card from his daughter that from now on can answer the question.
