Re: Hospice wants me to stop feeding my dad

I tried to look at it from another point of view.

What if it was me in that bed. Would I want to be kept alive for my family to have to deal with the stress and pain? And see me like that day after day?

NO. I would not want them to have to go thru that no matter what. Therefore I had a peace of mind when I signed for my wife to have no life support or feeding. It's just prolonging them passing for a day or a week. And no one has any quality of life.

Just my opinion.
