I am writing my PS about a very close family member who became terminally ill and needed constant care. Consequently, he spent the last four months of his life in my home while my father and I tended to his every need. My focus will be how I became a better person because of this experience. I am trying to briefly state the facts. The sentence below just does not seem to flow smoothly. Does anyone have any suggestions? Thank you very much. I begin by saying that "On such date, so and so was diagnosed terminally ill.""No longer be able to care for himself the first floor of my home was transformed into a hospital wing."
