I would just want to inform you that your sister came and asked something about your mother’s treatment and she has discussed it with one of our nurses.
Thank you for telling me this. I’d like to know the planned course treatment that you willgive to my mother.
She mentioned that she wants the best possible care done to your mother. Since you are the legally appointed decision maker and healthcare proxy for the patient, I wanted to tell you this to know what your decision is.
How about your sister?
Okay, Doc. My mother would not want any aggressive measures. I agree to what comfort care you will provide for my mother.
The ICU team’s plan is to continue the current supportive treatment regimen.
I will talk to her about this and I’ll try to make her understand the reason why I’m agreeing with my mother’s directives.
I hate you, why would you agree to mother’s wish to not have heroic measure?
Don’tyou love her?
It’s not that I don’t love her, our mother has been suffering silently for a long timenow and even though she’s not telling me about this, I can feel how tired she is and howmuch pain she is feeling that is why I’m agreed to her directives.
I don’t want to prolong her pain anymore. That’s what you also feel, right?
