They are ending my grandmother's life. She is begging for water and they won't give her any * A Final Edit*
I a so wracked with guilt and confusion it's hard to breathe.
I live on the other side of the country and went back to see her for 2 days.
My Grandmother is in a hospice center. She signed a DNR and something where they can't intubate and they can't give her an IV. She had a colonoscopy that told them she needed surgery, but she can't have surgery for it. She got pneumonia from drinking water because she can't really swallow.So they have stopped giving her food and water.She is still awake, still talking, she is begging to leave that place, she's asking for water all the time, and all the doctors and nurses say this is the best thing to do.
This is killing me . What do I do? Is this right? Should I go back again? Trust the doctors? call the police?
She passed at about 11:00 pm last night.
I don't know how I feel about all this. I'm just torn.
