So this is what's going on with my mom....They took her off the vent again on thursday, but then had to put her back on today...This makes 18 days in ICU and on/off with the vent for 15 days...So my family has made this decision...Tommorrow (Saturday) , we are taking my mom off the vent knowing that she can't survive without it. It was her wishes not to have to rely on a mchine to keep her alive. I have mixed feelings about what we are doing, because her mind and other organs are still good, but I also can't stand to see her suffer, and she is....So we are taking her off the vent and putting her in a regular room with a window, and with all of her family. Please if anyone's been in this situation help me understand. I feel terrible....I NEED YOUR HELP PLEASE>>>
