      leslieluv29, Thank you.  At least your son in law died comfortably in his hime with all loved one surrounding him.  That is what my son wanted and needed.  Not the horror show of 4-5 ICU teams working on him.  Not the neglect of solid communication between loved ones, patients, and professionals.  I told the Dr. in between my sobs, "He could have stopped it before instead of pushing for the G...

        Release me,  it was not the terrible disease that took him.  His tumor in his brain was stable.  Perfectly stopped.  It was the lack of food and nourishment, back to back procedures done, some which were not necessary, and pushing of the operation for Gtube when he could have been on the temporary ngtube for almost a month to strengthen him and get a grip on the blood clots.  It was the fac...

            ausgand, That is the way I wanted for my son Jeff to survive his last days.  They did not care enough to suction out fluids ahead of time.  His vital signs were supposedly stable. The night before he woke up with burning ach in his right leg and the next morning he complained of pain in his head and nose area.  Blood was coming out of his nostril that did not have the ng tube. I told the nurs...

              I think 10-11 days is too much time without sustenence.  Don't you?

                I need the proper guidance to a neurosurgeon that will be willing to do microscopic surgery in areas of my sons cerebellum for him to live as normal a life as possible.  Ou facility has made excuses and has been digging my sons grave with everyword that comes out of their mouths lately.  Guide us, please.

                  We need solid prayer.  The last 3-4 days my son is not responding to me or anyone else.  He wakes up groggy and it takes more than 2 hours for him to be somewhat awake enough to carry on a conversation.  His eating has slowed down.  Did not eat tonights dinner or drink anything tonight without coughing continuously, ending up gurggling, aspirating into his lungs the regurgitated food from his...

                    I have noticed a difference in my sons daily performance in speech, thinking, comprehension, strength, etc since we lowered his 4mg.s of Decadron to 3 mg.s.  I know the Decadron(Dex) is for inflamation.  It was lowered because it contributed to his off the charts dangerous blood sugars, and his skin was breaking down, plus the pressure sores were getting worse.(the danger with the pressure sores is th...
