Re: Thoughts on assisted suicide in... Carol
I'm sure that guilt might come in somewhere but it's also that you don't want to give up hope for some miracle. I didn't only see it, I lived it. I put off suggestions for putting my husband in hospice because I feared that he wouldn't get the care he might need for some unrelated illness. When the day came that I saw he was no longer in touch with his surroundings and wouldn't come back, I gave him permission to go, that I would be all right. I think he was hanging in out of worry for me. There was no indication that his passing was eminent but he was gone within the hour.
