I must admit thatr I had to be quite forceful with the doctor treating my mother. Having informed us that her condition, an inoperable perforated bowel, was terminal they started to give antibiotics! The nurse whom I challenged, commented that you would not treat a dog in such a manner. The doctor was summoned, he asked me to leave the room and , I presume, questioned my unconscious mother, before withdrawing treatment.
I have always felt that respecting my mother’s wishes was the right thing to do.
