So Vicki is back in the hospital....went into respitory distress (while I was away out of state on a 2 week vacation). Back on the ventilator. More rounds of plazmapheresis. All the while she is mouthing to me around the tubes "dont let me suffer". Before all of this she was begging me to give her a shot that would put her to sleep and never wake again. She is soooooo tired of being sick. I have been pondering the idea of a DNR order on her. Gonna wait till she gets through this crisis and then talk to her about it. Going to have her sign it herself so I or her son do not have to deal with the "guilt" that might go along with the order. Has anyone else delt with this and what type of suffering might she suffer?
