My 65 yr old wife suffered non-convulsive epileptic seizures and is now mentally impaired and in a skilled nursing facility. Half the time she doesn't know where she is or what's going on. She gets agitated and seems to hurt with the least touches and hasn't been eating so that she is very debilitated necessitating a PEG feeding tube to stabilize her weight. The nurses there say that she is slowly declining with the best that they can do and her mental state is not improving.
I've already signed a DNR but asked that feeding tube and IV s be used used in conjunction with comfort measures.
The question is would she want to continue with no quality of life?
