Played this for a relative the other day, and was surprised by their fascination with it.

A few hours later, gently, the conversation moved towards how, recently, they were having much more trouble thinking and doing their job...and then I knew why they wanted to understand this tune so much.

He's heavily medicated and the doctor said he didn't want CPR if it comes to that.His living will conflicts that,but he has made it very clear he doesn't want to go the feeding tube route.

I understand and respect that.I wouldn't either.

However,if he said he doesn't want CPR,I beg to differ,I think the doctor made a mistake.

The doctor I spoke to at 5:30 said that was what he said.I've spoken to his nurse and her supervisor and they both said he did not say that and have paperwork from this afternoon that say he will get CPR if needed.

Maybe the doctor was at the end of her shift and made a mistake.She is now unavailable.

 I'm waiting to hear back from my attorney to see if I can over ride what I think is a mistake on the doctors part.

 No way my Pops would ever give up.

We pretty much followed my Mom's wishes but the hardest thing ever was developing the emotional state that allowed her to let go.  Not to get too metaphysical on you and I don't know if it made a rat's-arse difference to her, but I can say it was an important step for my long term well being and she would have highly approved of that.

  Hang in there man.

Reader's Digest recently ran an article called something like 'How Doctors Die'. The upshot is doctors tend to adamantly refuse 'extreme measures'. Doctors who get a terminal cancer diagnosis, for example, don't suffer through chemo, but go home, or on vacation, or whatever. They've seen too much to put themselves through it. One doctor said, of all the hundreds of patients he'd administered a defibrilator on, only one left the hospital better than he came in. And that was a young guy who had no heart disease or history of it.

But there's no black and white answer either. External CPR is one thing, but chest cracking, or a ventilator, or God forbid a feeding tube, those are the scary ones, and once administered are difficult, if not impossible from a legal standpoint, to reverse. What is 'extreme', right? What would the patient really want? But you have a rare reserve of strength, I can't imagine doing all you have done. I am sure, if you have to make that decision, you will do right by your father.

Peace,
c.
