Comfort care: Headache, nausea, and confusion progressing to coma. Hospice care can be very helpful. Make arrangements to forego aggressive care in favor of comfort measures only if this is acceptable to you. Be glad for a life well-lived overall despite some mistakes. I wish you peace and comfort.
