    He wants to restart treatment, but he's so weak. Plus, if they do it, it will only be once a month.They already said he's past the point that it will even extend his life by much.

      Sorry to hear of his prognosis. Let us know if we can help with anything.

    Other Care (Palliative care): FIL has decided he is going to refuse treatment and signed a DNR this morning at the hospital. He only wants to be made comfortable.

    Other Care (Hospitalization): Home health nurse came, noticed he was coughing up blood and had extreme chest pains. Called ambulance. Admitted to ICU. Dehydration again, and an infection in his lungs.

    MIL is with FIL at the hospital waiting to be taken back. His appointment was at 10:30. It's almost 11!
