we say no to the DNR at this point. Yesterday he was singing songs to the nurses, today the BP has spiked way high. he usually has low BP. they are medicating him so he mostly sleeps and now calling for bringing in morphine. not sure what is going on. all nurses don't think he is on death bed. we are not sure what to make of all this. sis called me from fla in a panic. she lives with mom (w early dementia) and dad there, I am in MA
I do wonder --- I thought a DNR was a fundamental part of hospice. Is that not true?
