He literally drank himself until his liver shut down and he died.
A volunteer came to me to explain she had a friend of the family who was suffering from cirrhosis of the liver-- she kept interr
upting me to say he had "drank himself into this problem"-- I told her it was still a terminal diagnosis that was hospice appropriate. You see what she wasn't understanding is that EVERYONE has the right to die with dignity in a place they decide, as pain free as possible and with whom ever they want to be around them in this time -- This is part of the HOSPICE philosophy. Death with dignity. She had no idea that this was also a diagnosis that would qualify him for hospice. We talked about it on Monday-- before she could get in touch with him-- he died without services.
