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".
Current Mood: annoyed

One of the things that Pengie's father's death made apparent to both of us is that the last place in the world we would ever want to be right before we die is under the watchful eye of healthcare professionals. The ease with which they wrote him off - and the subsequent expectation that we do the same - was alarming.

I'm sorry you have to deal with this. I hope things work out in the best way possible for everyone - especially your dad.
