This will be very brief, and then we'll return to the daily rant. Today has been a bit rough. Early this morning Dad had pulmonary and cardiac arrest, was revived, and slept the day away without sedation. We are taking a pause for him to hopefully wake, and allow the docs' to assess for neurological damage, before going forward...he has been quite clear in writing and in past conversations regarding his end-game wishes in the face of severe impairment.
I am substantially less than optimistic. He is back on respirator, and the discussion has turned to tracheotomy and such.
