    die in hospital or die at home

    Decision Point

    another tumor has formed and is obstructing her intestines. they do not want to do surgery on a cancer patient due to the high risk so it just grew and grew. now her second type of chemo has failed so they have stopped the treatments and are deciding to either do the surgery and allow her to die from it or to send her home to die "comfortably" from the cancer.
