The medical people were giving him morphine and told me I could ask them to give him more if I wanted. I really didn't understand what they were telling me at the time. Today I understand there was a lot more behind this statement than I realized.
My grandfather-in-law had a stroke a couple of years ago, and we spent some time at his bedside before he died. His mind was completely gone and there was no chance of recovery, we were just waiting for his body to give up and follow suit. This lasted for three days before one of the nursing staff managed to convey (while studiously avoiding actually saying so) that the magic phrase is "I think he's in pain." Say that, and they are allowed to increase the morphine dose and hasten the end. Unless you do, their hands are tied.
