No Life Support

After spending last Monday with my group of senior friends and then going out to lunch...I learned on Tuesday my dearest friend of all had a massive stroke Monday night and her Caregiver didn't tell the Paramedics that she did not want to be resuscitated. They did and now she is in a coma...They are sending her home today...I just don't know how long she will last with out food or water.

I prayed so hard that she would wake up but after seeing our Dr. today he said there is no hope..she will go on but he can't say when. I have shed enough tears to float a Battleship. We have been very close for 20 years. I now Pray that it will be soon ...go in Peace my dear friend.
Marge

Dear Marge,

I am praying for Lorraine too. I am also praying for you, as I know this is not an easy time for you.

So sorry to hear this Marge. I hope the best for Lorraine. Why didnt her caregiver tell them not to recesitate her? Who is her caregiver? Another good reason to do a living will while we are healthy. So sad though. I wish your friend peace, and a painless departure.
