Re: He's back at the hosp. - Rich
Of course, each case is different but after witnessing an otherwise robust man spending the last six months of his life in hell trying to buy some extra time when the handwriting is already on the wall is not for me. Treatments for a younger person, someone whose prognosis leaves room for success or to relieve distress are another story. My daughter, a nurse usually caring for oncology patients, agrees that in my husband's case, he would have fared better had he'd never known and ignored the temporary dizzy spell he had in doing a physical job.. Even if the result wound up the same, the contributors to his end wouldn't have happened. He would have had months of quality time going about his business and probably keeled over with a heart attack or spent only a short time incapacitated since none of what might be normally anticipated from his problems occurred during those six months.
