After reading your post, I feel better about the DNR decision I made for my elderly mother. She passed away ,in the hospital, 3 weeks ago, and I have struggled with guilt about the DNR decision I made. I'm not a nurse but I work in the medical field. When the attending nurse told me my mother was gone (died in my arms) my first instinct was to do CPR on her. I started to, then my gut told me to let her go. Now, I'm second guessing myself because I miss her so. I hope I did the right thing.
