Hoosier Musings on the Road to Emmaus

Wednesday, June 11, 2003


Gram is now ensconced in an in-patient hospice program. Hospice, for the unfamiliar, is essentially comfort care for terminal patients. They will not intubate, resuscitate, or take any extraordinary measures to prolong her life. What they will do is care for her, and keep her comfortable-- including providing pain meds at a level that makes hospitals nervous, if needed. It's a good system, and exactly what she wants-- and what we want for her. Good people, making a hard time easier.
