Cherokee Chief AKA Dana Turner

Recommended Posts

Not sure how many people from the old days still stop in.
Dana Turner AKA Cherokee Chief is in the hospital with brain cancer.
His condition is deteriorating and they are moving him to a nursing home for hospice care
He will be missed. He was a good friend and fought the good fight.

I spoke with Dana today. His hospice ase manager used her phone. He no longer k ows how to work his phone. He was telling me about cookie monster. And that he had been playing dodgeball. I asked him if he was winning and he said no. He was very perky and sounded happy in his own way. He had some chocolate pudding
But upchucked it, he said. I said so you barfed? He said yeah, I barfed a lot! He even giggled a bit. Mom was then able to talk to him. He agreed that he does love red or orange jello too. He is not the same Dana, but we played along. And that made him happy. Our goal is for comfort and no pain.
Thank you for the prayers and positive thoughts.
