A Tragedy

I would have posted this last night but I was out very late at a work function.

Unfortunately poor Joe died yesterday. Our RDNS friend let me know late in the afternoon.

What she said was that he seemed comfortable enough but then suddenly had massive heart failure. From what she says an embolism has detached from one of the leg injuries and lodged in his heart.

We are all gob-smacked, it seems such a waste.

I am sorry I can't say more but it's 6:00 am and and I have to get to work.

Sorry to hear about this loss. Especially hard this time of year.

I'm sorry to hear this. As you know I recently lost my uncle and I can relate to the grief you and his family are feeling. You, Joe and his family will be in my prayers. God bless.

How very sad. And just as it seemed he might have a chance to get the care he needed.

Hi all,
Thank you all for your kind words. I very much appreciate them.
It was a surprise that Joe went like that, but it is an unfortunate complication that is not unheard of with serious fractures.
Again thank you all for your support.
