My mother and I openly shared our thoughts about death and dying. My father was her medical proxy until my mother became very ill. I was able to spare my father from unspeakable pain, and honor my mother's wishes.
What is a provocation or insight that might inspire others during this challenge?
Clearly define what DNR means to a terminal patient. Then discuss the best person who can and will honor those wishes. It might be an innapropriate resonsibility for a spouse.
