I'm so very sorry to hear Rebecca, that is a terrible thing to happen. Colon cancer and it's complications is a devastating thing to happen to someone..
Condolences to you and your family.
Thanks Jen, very appreciated there for the support
Gotta say TSS is definitely the best place for support at this time. Everyone here is awesome.
As for the complications, mom and I, as well as my Aunt marg (hubby to Uncle Glenn, my deceased uncle's brother) who's an R.N (registered nurse) here in Ontario are pretty sure this could of possibly been prevented (keeping well in mind sometimes things are inevitable).
Instead of jamming a tube down his throat to pump crap out of him, they could/should of transfered him at the first sign not enough stuff was going in his "bag" to a more equipped facility like the hospital in Victoria instead of putting incredible stress on his body and heart doing that. My aunt and mother will be requesting all the papers, charts and note from the hospital regarding his stay in the BC hospital.
My family is one team that I feel if I ever get put in a hospital or legal situation, I'm not gonna get nonsense thrown at me, that's for sure. Aunt's a registered nurse, mother's a legal secretary who has connections to lawyers including our boss (mom and I work together) and my remaining uncle is a police detective. If there was ANY mistake on the hospital's part that caused this nonsense, it will be shown...that I'm fairly confident in.
In the meantime mom is making arrangements to go with my aunt and my remaining uncle for a few days out to B.C. to plan a memorial out there while I hold down the fort here.
Thanks again for the support and I'm gonna say it again: I love it that this forum is here right now.
