Former U.S Senator James Abdnor is in hospice care in Sioux Falls according to the family’s attorney. Vance Goldammer says has been receiving hospice care since noon Sunday.
He says doctors believe the former South Dakota Senator and Lieutenant Governor is in his final stages of life. Goldammer says the Republican is resting comfortably and is still communicating. He also receives daily visits from his nieces and nephews.
Goldammer says Abdnor fell and smashed a shoulder, last Fall, which affected him physically and led to the decline of his health.
