My 75 year old dad died yesterday at home. I was with him. He had a syringe drive pumping meds in including something to break down the mucus. In his final couple of hours he was dribbling what was called coffee granuals by nurse. We asked for Dr to come in and he uped one of the meds. Within minutes of him leaving the coffee granuals stuff gushed out of his mouth his tounge hung out and he was gone. I'm pleased it is over for him but i know the coffee granuals was blood and i can't get this image out of my head and its killing me. And unless you were there its hard to understand how arful it was. Has anyone else experienced this and how have you coped. I thought he would just pass in his sleep.
