Why do you think some people who are terminally ill choose to die at home? I'm asking this because it was exactly this time last year when I got the news that my father was terminally ill. He was living with my brother at the time, and he chose to die at home. It was very, very difficult for my brother but he and my other brother (and a visiting nurse, who never seemed to be around) took care of him and watched him die. I have always thought that if I was dying I would want to be in the hospital because (a) They'd better be giving me the BEST painkilling drugs they've got and lots of them, and (b) I wouldn't want to put my family members through the ordeal of having to care for me, watch me die, and then be left with the memory of my death in their home. How do you feel about this? Would you rather die in a hospital or at home?
dk/dc/to hell with that Debbie Downer question: How is your holiday season going? Are you having a good time this year?
