Well it if official. My man has to make a decision on whether to do a peg tube or die. The urologist told me this morning that he is dehydrated. If he will not drink more fluids because of throat hurting/he is aspirating, he will die. He has signed a paper with hospice that he does not want a peg tube. I told him that he has to make that decision, I will not. He still has all of his mind, and he knows exactly what is going on.
The neurologist doctor did a knowledge test on him last Wednesday. He passed with flying colors. Even counting backwards from 100 by 7's.
The only question he failed is, he did not remember the current president of the U.S. name.
I will stand by his decision, no mater what it is. But, I cannot bring myself to tell him to get the peg tube or not. I have already started contacting the family.
