    Ok, I checked. She says it's 'not uncommon', even in patients that are sedated towards the end (Again, where she works, most are. It's common practice here).

    Lina, You read to Savor. It doesn't matter the speed honey. Just keep moving forward.

    I agree with you @VultureLvr45 - reading 175 pages in one evening is a true luxury and to me almost an 'indulgence" - you get to immerse yourself in the book and for just a while you feel like you are in that other world. It is a great feeling but not one I can enjoy very often. So therefore I am like Lina - I get to read a chapter or maybe two before bed if I am lucky.

    ...yeah, because the "little god's" in white coats, wouldn't acknowledge you anyway....agonal breathing is agonal breathing-whether the onset is sudden or as the near the end result of long term disability...it's horrible, and as a nurse-the less I hear it, the better...

    One of my favorite books by King. I could not put it down. I just got so hooked,I could not do anything else till I was done.

    How different the medical field can be. Where my wife works it marks the end of their guidance on life's last journey, a point where they have been working towards with the patient and their family. It's often welcomed, as it ends a far greater pain or suffering.

    ...oh I agree, it's an end to suffering and marks the arrival at the clearing at the end of their path-it's just painful to hear-knowing that as healer, there's nothing you can do to bring them any more grace...

    It's awful. Sitting there watching and listening to it. It's awful.

    That is why I work in a completely different field. I can't bear to watch people suffer. Thank God others can.
