I highlight Hailie because I think she went beyond her job to see that A was comfortable when it looked like the end was coming.

My wife, A, was admitted and she had many problems.  She was in the ICU for 14 days when she died.  The care A received from everyone was outstanding.  They really cared about her.  We only live .9 of a mile from Centegra Huntley so I would go to see her 4 times a day and stay quite a while each time.  When I was there someone was always checking on A. 

I highlight Hailie because I think she went beyond her job to see that A was comfortable when it looked like the end was coming.  I spoke with Hailie and Dr. H.  I made the decision and they both thanked me for making the hard decision when I decided to do the right thing.  Hailie ordered a tray of food and a pot of coffee for me.  About 5:30 I got Hailie and said I think it is time.  She removed all of the tubes A had but left the respirator on.  She told me to let her know.  I held A telling her how much I loved her and will miss her even though I know she could not hear me.  A little later Hailie came in and I said to remove the respirator.  She did and then left the room.  I held on tight to A talking to her till I knew she was gone.  Hailie came in to tell me that, but I knew.

Thank you, Hailie. You are an outstanding nurse.
