Receiving treatment for pneumonia, on dialysis, kidneys shut down, but could come back. Mentally is still sharp, but wants to give up. Says she is a burden. My brother is caregiver and does not see her as a burden, there every day to help with her care.
She could recover and go home and with physical therapy be in better shape then prior to hospitalization. She says she'll accept treatment one day, then she changes her mind. Without dialysis she will poison herself and not have her mental ability. We believe she can have a good worthwhile existence and she is instead choosing to die.
What can you say to someone in this situation. How do you cope with this decision?
