I'm not sure where to post this question, but I hope this is the correct area. My grandmother was removed from life support two days ago due to not having a DNR. I was certain she would pass within a few hours, but she is still hanging on. She is on a morphine drip and they give her Ativan (sp) for seizures she is experiencing. In your experiences, what is the longest time you've seen someone surrive after being removed from the ventilator and artificial nurishment?
I don't want to sound like I am rushing her to die, but she looks so uncomfortable laying there having seizures. Even though I don't think she is aware of anything going on or suffering, she just doesn't seem comfortable.
Thanks for your responses.
