No More Treatment

My father-in-law was discharged from the hospital to our house Wednesday evening. The collapsed lung was inoperable. The pain seems to have subsided (probably due to an increase in painkillers). He has decided to forgo any more radiation treatments on his lungs and instead have hospice care. He'll be eligible for more nursing visits, home health aides, etc. He admitted it was difficult to make a decision that nothing else can be done to save his life but he seems more comfortable.
