RitaH, sorry about your mom. They should have tried everything and allow God to do what He does, and that is give life, or take it away. Not saying He didn't take her life, but it was done by the instrument of man and not God. That she would die at such a time was a sure thing. God knows each one's time.

The Seg, the story of your mom is almost like the story of my wife. Three days before she died, she told me that in three days something terrible was going to happen to her. She said she knew. In my wife's case her death came by accident. That night we took her to the hospital for shortness of breath. Three days later they gave her a test, and in the process they ruptured her main artery and she bled to death.

I have never known anyone to wish they which they hate will die except for one person. I worked with her many years ago. people better be careful what they wish for. they may get their wish. while I don't hate anyone I come close with Obama.

More we pray for hated ones to pass on. We pray for loved ones to be healed and well and to be of extended service. Only in the Lord not being on the same page as we are, might we pray for a loved ones passing.

I wish to make a slight correction to my ealier posting. L.C.P. stands for Liverpool Care PATHWAY (not PLAN). This makes absolutely no difference to what it is about but if anyone wished to Google it they'd need the correct title.

I agree with another contributor who says that there were other options available for administering fluids other than by mouth. I don't believe they even try this once the powers that be have made the decision that the person will die. They just want the bed for someone else.

We live in a cruel, uncaring society in the twenty first century. How much further can we fall?
---Rita_H on 4/4/13

1st_cliff, I feel for Rita as well. But, euthanasia wasn't the only solution for her mother.
If for some reason she couldn't swallow for fear of aspiration (water or food in the lung), they could have given her fluids SQ which is the fatty tissue underneath the skin (Diabetic place insulin). That would have helped with thirst and swabs for dry mouth. Even IV fluids is better.
England has admitted they euthanize over 130,000 elderly patient yearly due to cost and no rooms.
Don't believe the lies. There is no reason to euthanize.

Just throw me a situation, and I can tell you want can be done besides euthanasia. Of course it all costs money.
We need to be a culture of life not death.

I have never prayed for anyone to die. God is the one to answer that one. no man has the right to make a decision to live or die. who is man that thinks he is capable. I took care of my precious daughter and my sweet husband. I was selfish and wanted them to live.I prayed for them every night that God would heal them and He did heal them. both are happy and pain free.
---shira4368 on 3/24/13

Rita H, I sympathize with you in that 12 days to die of thirst is extremely harsh.In a case like that I believe euthanasia would have been more humane and painless, even though society believes otherwise!
We only have one mom and all too soon they have to leave us....blessings
---1st_cliff on 3/23/13

Thanks Cliff. Once a person is in a coma it is quite different but my mother (18 months ago) was, without my knowledge, put on the L.C.P. It took 12 days for her to die. She was talking with my brothers for much of that time and when she asked for a drink the staff just placed a wet swab in her mouth to keep it moist. I live a very long way away from the family. I found out the truth one year and 2 weeks after it happened. I had visited her just a week before she was hospitalised and never envisaged any of that was about to take place. I can still hardly believe that it happened that way.
---Rita_H on 3/23/13

Rita/Nikki, Why would you think it more humane to bring someone back to life to prolong the suffering when the vital signs cease and when death is imminent??
There is a more humane procedure it's called euthanasia,1st_cliff on 3/22/13

No, you don't understand what I am saying. I am a nurse. DNR/I means to let them die. DON'T try to bring them back to life to suffer some more.

Euthanasia means mercy killing. It is horrible and abused by medical personnel.
We have medication to prevent someone from suffering. If they have too much pain, but only have days to live, we can place them into a palliative sedation until death. No need to kill someone before God calls them to Himself.
---Nikki on 3/23/13

Rita, Sorry we were not on the same page, I never heard of the LCP , here in Canada they treat the patient normally but when the patient loses vital signs and is comatose then they don't resussitate,but let them go!
You're right, withholding food and water is indeed cruel!
---1st_cliff on 3/23/13

Cliff I do not wish to bring someone back from near death to continue suffering. I think that, as euthenasia is illegal, there has to be a better way than allowing someone who is conscious and talking to their relatives, to be left with no food or water and allowed to die from thirst and hunger. We'd be imprisoned if we treated a dog that way.

I hope no-one ever puts me on the Liverpool Care Plan. It's not as humane as some of the literature would have us believe. It is CRUEL.
---Rita_H on 3/22/13

Rita/Nikki, Why would you think it more humane to bring someone back to life to prolong the suffering when the vital signs cease and when death is imminent??
There is a more humane procedure it's called euthanasia, but this is taboo in most countries!
They will end an animal's life to end the suffering, but not people!
---1st_cliff on 3/22/13

I think it is a common prayer.
---Born on 3/22/13

Today in many hospitals a patient,terminally ill with no hope of recovery, no quality of life, can sign a DNR request (do not resuscitate) which is a more humane way of ending suffering!--1st_cliff on 3/19/13

DNR and DNI (do not intubate-Vent) isn't a humane way of ending a suffering. It just means: when I die normally, (meaning no help or push to go towards the light by medical staff or family) do not bring me back to life. No CPR.

In most states if not all states you need a DNR/I order to prevent CPR.
Everyone who dies should receive CPR to try to bring them back to life unless they have a DNR/I order on their chart.
---Nikki on 3/21/13

In U.K. we have a different form of D.N.R. It is called the L.C.P.

Google Liverpool Care Plan and ask yourself "Would I wish my dog to die that way?"

There has to be some way better than that.
---Rita_H on 3/21/13

Today in many hospitals a patient ,terminally ill with no hope of recovery, no quality of life, can sign a DNR request (do not resuscitate) which is a more humane way of ending suffering! I would not hesitate in that situation, with a clear conscience!

Bro. Trey, I've never prayed for a love one to pass on. I never thought that way at the time of my mom's, dad's, sisters, and wife death. My mom had no pain, my sister was in a coma, my wife died by accident. If one of them had been in much pain, I would have ask God to stop them from suffering so much and take them. No one wants to lose a relative. Especially a son or daughter. But we don't have any control over their deaths or ours. When our time comes we will go. Only God knows how much time we have. I always remember the passages,
"For we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose"
(Rom. 8:28) That also means even in our hardest times.
---Mark_V. on 3/19/13

Before my father died he was in bad shape, suffering and all.
Who would have thought two years later mom would develop cancer too.
The last year of her life, was so bad. She never lost faith.

I never prayed openly for their deaths, but we all hoped for the end to their suffering.
If hoping for something with all your heart is a prayer. Then yes, I prayed my off!
My mother knew the day of her death. Before she even got sick, none of us believe her.
I talk to her a lot in her life, she had some pretty far out dream too.
And no I don't miss them, because I know I will see them again.
The love of God, Peace!
---TheSeg on 3/18/13

We have prayed that the Lord would help their passing to be quick and easy if it was HIS will to take them.
---KarenD on 3/18/13

Seg, Your first statement shows a love for this planet that God made for man.He inteded that it would be man's pemanent home 'till Adam's sin caused all to die!
The resurrection is so that we might live again.
"Blessed are the meek....they inherit the earth!"
Man was never meant to live up in the sky!

After asking myself, if I should post this!

I love walking, mountains, grass, sea, air, God I love everything!
One of my deepest prayers is that my life on this earth would end.
And I don't care how, just not by my own hand!
Now listen everyone, I love life!

But I know there is a life after this life.
Now you guys may think I'm nuts and maybe I am!
But, I know I will see each and every one of you there.

The how and why are really not important. I mean in your reasoning!
The truth is no one is worthy or merit heaven, no one.
And that is the beauty of it, makes no sense, right!
Oh, but it does!
---TheSeg on 3/18/13
