    Treatment or no treatment

    Decision Point

    My husband has declined the 1 month, in the hosp. treatment for his AML. They say he has from a few weeks to a few months..............

    Hospice

    Other Care

    My husband was placed in hospice last Friday. He lays on a hosp. bed in the living room with oxygen. He is on morphine (only .5 cc) every 2 hours and 2 - 100 mg pain patches. He isn't eating enough to keep a cat alive and is loosing weight. The doctors say there is no way of knowing how long he will last like this, as he is still drinking and able to move around some. He is a very stubborn and hard headed man and has always done as he pleases. He says he is NOT going to stop driving and plans on driving to the airport when ever he wants. (He is a private pilot). I don't know how to stop him or if I should...............
