It's one of the worst things to have to see. Even worse the emotional toll it took on my mom.
It's a very delicate situation and not only do you have to live with your decision to pull the plug, you have to live with the ridicule some of your family members may give you for the rest of your life.
Sorry to hear that Couch.
