My name is Cory. I am a mom, a wife, a NaNa, and a critical care nurse that lives in Nashville, TN. I have found my calling in ER/Trauma/ICU. Each day I find myself experiencing life changing events and hope that by reading my posts, you will experience and feel some of what I do. If you read nothing else, please take time to read "The Hardest Question Ever Asked". It's my very first posting. And if for some reason you think you see your story here.....you don't. It's not about you or anyone you know. =)

Although this isn't a funny issue, we all have to deal with this frequently in our jobs and it can be very frustrating. This shows a nurse's view and maybe we're the only one's that will see the humor in it but we are also the only one's that sometimes see the torture we put patients through that are Full Codes until the bitter end.
Short of getting D.N.R. tattooed on my chest (and I've threatened my family that I will do it) lol I've made it pretty clear what my wishes are. And I suppose my point to this blog since my blogs usually have a point is this: talk to your family, make your wishes known, don't make them make the decision for you.
