Pops is rapidly declining

My husband finally agreed to Comfort Care. He was in some deep denial there in the beginning His dad is rapidly declining. He has Dysphagia – he is having a hard time swallowing. The Doctor told us, if they put in a feeding tube, he would have to go back to the hospital and get that procedure done – it would be painful, there is the risk of infection and he still could get food and liquid into his lungs causing a form of pneumonia. My husband is afraid they are letting his dad, starve to death – or die of thirst. They are not. The stroke was more damaging than first suspected and he could have a week, or a month – no one knows. He\’s lost 15 lbs in one week. 
So they got us in there Thursday afternoon – for the first time. We go twice a day.  
When you have an elderly parent, you know that one day they will pass. But when they show signs of wellness, you almost forget, or you ignore the inevitable because you are enjoying the moments you have today. Then one day, it\’s all gone. It hits you like a ton of bricks and you\’re actually shocked – even though, you knew it was coming. Denial is powerful.

    It is always a shock no matter how prepared you are mentally. My great aunt broke her hip. She was very underweight and unfortunately after the surgery, she waved away her food which is a bad choice. To recover, you have to eat. This led to a feeding tube and a respirator. The doctor asked my cousin about removing the respirator and my cousin had a meltdown which is understandable. This led to my aunt being moved to a nursing home with a respirator. About a month later, my cousin made the decision to have the respirator removed. It was heartbreaking in that my aunt's mind was fully there. The doctor even approached me and my mom when we were visiting the day after the meltdown of my cousin. You could tell the doctor was very concerned about my aunt. I'm so sorry about Pops.

    I'm sorry to hear this. I'm glad you have not agreed to a feeding tube. I see people with dysphagia who often have stomach discomfort associated with the constant feeding running through a tube. Still a hard decision to make.
