What you didn’t know...

JoAnn - I have cared for many patients facing the end of their lives. Before the doctor came to you and asked you about your mom’s end of life care, he and a medical team carefully considered your mother’s condition. If there had been any chance that your mother could recover and have quality of life, they would NOT have even asked you to make this choice. Your choice was whether your mom should have a dignified natural end or to keep her physical body going regardless of quality of life - we can by artificial means maintain a body indefinitely so it forces us to now make decisions that many years ago we didn’t have to face. So saying let her be is often best - and then hoping for a miracle - is the kindest, bravest thing you will ever do. I hope this helps you in your journey - that just being given the decision meant the doctors knew her condition was not treatable.
