After 4 years of fighting this stupid disease, my father in law, is fighting for his life. He currently is in a coma, has Respiratory Failure (was on a bipap prior to this). And now has extremely high blood pressure, high sugar and is experiencing multiple organ failure. we are waiting on the CT scan - does anyone know if its possible to recover from this.

The doctor explained that his one lung collapsed and he has a patch in the other. He will need tubes - Is non invasive ventilation an option or is that too late?

I'm so sorry.

Has your father done a living will to make it clear what he would want?
