Joe Pictures VIII

 Some selection of Joe's Images


 Joe in his last year at the St Thomas Hospital. He spent many months there, some of hem bed bound, suffered through 17 operations, was diagnosed with diabetes and was discharged  in December 2006.  After some difficult time at home (he had several short stays and emergencies visits to the hospital and yet another surgery) and in spite of the care his friends doted on him, he once again became desperately ill nearly a year later and died within a week of being newly hospitalised.

Links on web pages describing the illness that debilitated Joe can be found here  and here.

Joe was very keen to praise the St Thomas Hospital Staff for their care and friendliness. He himself  did not dwell on his ailments and showed fortitude and courage on the face of sometimes great sufferance.
