RE: [FH] Re: Urgent help hcm and cfr- end of the road
Thanks lyn, your advice has been so helpful through out this whole situation. I can't face the drip as if I lost him in there I would never forgive myself.
It's just so hard, he is my first baby boy and I don't want him to suffer for me. I know he will fight but just feel its too much to ask when I don't believe he will have the quality of life he deserves.
I think I just answered my own question, I am just emotionally drained and questioning my decision because I know there will be no going back. I just want to do right by him.
My partner wants to see how he goes but I am scared he will go straight back into heart failure and die an awful death. I just feel he deserves a dignified ending which is why I plan to do it in the privacy of our home.
Thanks again lyn

KellyAt such a high rate of kidney failure, it is difficult to find something to help. All I can suggest is to ask if fortekor would work for him and if so, put him on a drip until it starts working. Sadly, we all face this decision and its never easy. Look into his eyes and see if it is time to say goodbye and let him have the last act of kindness. Someone once told me here a prolonged life should not be a prolonged death. I am so sorry you are facing ths and hope someone else can offer help. Lyn
