It is with a heavy heart to say that on Thursday August 16, my father passed away. He was loved by everyone and had a noble soul. A few weeks back another blood clot was found in his leg, and after a catscan, a mass was found in his abdomen. This mass was the reason for the blood clot. The mass was very round so it seemed to be a quick removal. As he went into surgery, hours went by without any news. 4 hours later we found out there was a complication. The mass was malignant, a sarcoma. It was the size of an ostrich’s egg. It was attached to some blood vessels so when removed it began to hemmorage. They were unable to stop the bleeding but was moved to icu for 48 hours to see if it would improve. We were able to go talk to him one by one, while he was unconscious. About 5 minutes after we finished, a code blue was called. He had stopped breathing. They tried everything but it didn’t work.
This was completely unexpected and unreal. My dad spent his last week happy and unaware of what was to happen. My entire family is completely broken. My mom is already dealing with enough losing her everything. Us losing our everything. So please, anything helps.
Thank you so much.
