11:03 pm - Subtle Pressure
Yes he's going to die, no we don't want to aggressively treat the situation. But there is no way I'm going to agree to cut off my fathers, food and water.

The subtle pressure to do just that is quite shocking.
No one is going to convince me that dying of starvation or dehydration is "being kept comfortable".

wow, that brings up some things that i still have to deal with three years later.

it is amazing how sometimes care-givers like doctors and nurses can be utterly devoid of compassion. it probably doesn't help, but it sounds like you are doing the right thing. you and your family are in my thoughts, stay strong.
