Re: Mom is dying.

I'm sorry about your mom.

My daughter is an RN and she says that most families err on the side of doing too much to keep their elderly relatives alive, even going against what the elderly relative wanted for themselves.

I've made it as clear as possible to my children, to err on the side of not letting me suffer, not putting me through numerous treatments as an elderly person.
