Discussions that mention morphine

Alzheimer's Disease & Dementia board

You did the right thing, Sunny. We did the same for my Mom, and I also just recently gave my daughter medical POA over me, in case I am ever disabled. It is a blessing to your Mom not to be artificially kept 'alive' if that situation ever comes up. In my Mom's case, she was given morphine for pain but nothing else. She died peacefully at the age of 99. I believe she and my father are finally back together; he died in 1977, 30 years almost to the day before she did.

Their anniversary was June 20, and I thought to myself, finally they are together on this important date for them ...
