My very active and dignified father has had two strokes and is in a coma. My mother, who is a very self-absorbed individual, decided that it would be fun to take pictures of my dad to show him when he is better so we all can laugh. I was appalled and refused to use my cell phone in ICU to do so. My younger (44) brother did, however. My older brother, who is one of my father's physicians, does not know about this yet but will not approve either. I tried to stop the incident but could not. I feel that my father's privacy has been invaded and am very upset for him. He will not find pictures of himself in ICU on life support amusing at all if he does come out of the coma and can understand. My older sister made no effort to stop mother, either. I think the pictures should be destroyed and would like to know if anyone thinks I am over-reacting. These pictures were not taken to comfort someone. They were taken to use later for people to laugh at with my father ( who is 84 and will not be amused). Thank you for your help.
