     There has to be a better "end of life" care than what I witnessed with my father recently. Because he was a DNR, he was left to suffer with no food/drink and at the end was drowning in his own fluids. It was horrible and barbaric. Yes, he had morphine. Why can't we give something to end it faster, than watch this for days into weeks? It was worse than torture and inhumane, in my opinion.
