Couple of weeks ago Mr Toczko fall down and had a broken hip that left him bed –bound. Her wife was already sick before and no movement from long time. A local hospice has given a bed to Mr Toczko and pushed that one next to his wife bed. Their children used to take care of them while their condition was going worst. They didn’t let them alone for a second as they were not in steady condition.
Mr Toczko’s condition became worse quickly and his health turned fast to a position where doctors couldn’t do any much.
