There was a guy with trache, NG tube all restless for the past few years.
Beside him, standing a young pretty lady who is his wife.
Dr discuss with her regarding DNR.
If patient heartbeat stop, would you want me to resucitate the patient ?
She tried her best not to cry,
But Dr told her that she has been taking care her husband devotely for the past few years. If heartbeat stop, condition will not improve if you gain back the heartbeat, it can be worse.
They may said that you are cruel for agreeing with DNR, but they did not know what you have been done for the past few years only for him. They did not know how much and how strong you are to face all this problem.
She stay silent and cry.
Me too , crying deep down inside.
