  •  My cousin (0+ / 0-)

    Her mother-in-law. Dying in hospital of cancer. Huddled up in her bed, shrieking.

    She and her husband (son of woman dying) finally quit going in.

    Why? Neither the doctor nor the husband wanted to increase the morphine, because it might "hasten her death".

    My cousin said, "We treat our animals better than we treat the humans."

    The article's worth reading if you didn't already:

    Be good to each other. It matters.
