Ok , Story first, Husband been in rest-home for 2 year working on 3, For stroke, Friday He got bad, They gave us choice. He is not responding well. We had to made tough dissensions on what he would want because he unable to respond to our question.
I will try explain it must as I can. We had two options.
1. Comfort- focused treatment - Relieve pain and suffering with medication by any route as needed; use oxygen, suctioning, and manual treatment
of airway obstruction. Do not use treatments listed in Full and Selective Treatment unless consistent with comfort
2. Hospital - See what they can do for him.
We decided to wait over night . Check the results.
They come us with Two other Options
1. Feeding tub- He gets feeding tub and be in bed 15 hours a day Witch i feel he would not like cause he love go out side and be in his chair .
2. No feeding tub.
I have each and every family member what they think we should do.
We have decided to Comfort-focused Treatment. and no feeding tub.
Ok now im not sure what to do . He has gotten better. He is alert and talking. He told me im not dead (damit). And said im not dieing .
They asking would you like to put feeding tub in his tummy. Or keep doing comfort treatment. What should I do or get your opinions. Please Need A little advice.
