My dad spent the last two weeks of his life at Boone Hospital. Dad had colorectal cancer, he was diagnosed two years ago.

Two weeks ago he had another bowel obstruction and needed surgery. We thought he would recover and go home, but God had other plans. Dad never fully recovered, his body was wore out.

A week after the surgery he suffered a stroke and had more surgery. Dad passed two days later.

The care he received and the care the family received was wonderful. Dad spent those last two weeks in ICU.

The nurses were nothing but wonderful with Dad and us. I am very pleased with the care he received and the love and compassion that was shown to by the nurses.
