The Long Goodbye

We’ve spent most of the day at the ICU. My mother-in-law is not responding to treatment for pulmonary fibrosis, along with her emphysema and pneumonia. She’s now on comfort care: pain meds and sedation, and the ventilator she’s been on for two weeks. My father-in-law has to make a difficult decision.
