My Mom had CHF and Asthma...the last time she was in the hospital for decompensated CHF she said to me and my siblings, "you guys are going to make me live forever, aren't you?" I told her, no, we would not do that. I asked what she wanted and she said she wanted to go home and be able to "go out feet first like Dad." Her doc agreed to hospice, that meds would be stopped when she was ready. She went home with 24/7 caregiver. I told her that her meds would keep her going for quite a while, and when/if she was ready she could stop taking them whenever she wanted. She stopped meds about 5 weeks after going home, and died within a week. I did have to butt heads with hospice a couple of times because she wasn't "actively dying". She actively died when she stopped the meds, so those arguments didn't really serve much purpose other than to stress me out. Oh well.
