In July 2010, he needed another surgery to remove new growth and continued chemo. In October 2010, he lost movement of his legs and was admitted to Albany Med for rehab, if possible. That did not go well. When the treatment no longer stayed ahead of him, he was taken off meds and waited for an opening in a nursing home. He was admitted into a nursing home closer to our home, but after a week he passed in his sleep on December 15, 2010. He was my husband, a father of a daughter and son and grandfather to four grandsons and one granddaughter.
