She had a massive bleeding stroke in the interior of her brain, she is 88 years old and is said to be terminal. Family is trying to follow her health care directive and tenets of her Catholic faith. It has been over a week since she last had hydration or nutrition. Palliative care doctor and priest in hospital said that because of her condition putting tube in stomach, she cannot swallow, would be burdensome and only extend her suffering and not change final outcome. I understand this, but they are not slowly watching her die.
