Chuck Hinman now in hospice care

By Robert Stone

Paul Hinman sent out this note about his father, Chuck, last Friday.
Hello everyone,

Dad is not doing very well today. Since he's had two hospital stays within the past three weeks, I have placed him in a nursing facility in Bartlesville. He has refused food and drinks little water as of today (day number two at the nursing home) so I have initiated hospice care for him at the advice of his primary care doctor and the nursing team at the nursing home, Heritage Villa.

Your continuing prayers are much appreciated. Dad is getting the best possible care right now and I just want him to be comfortable and his needs met.

My thanks to all of you and I will keep you updated as I know things.
