The Family Imprint: The Photographs: Do Not Resuscitate
Do Not Resuscitate
The air felt strange at the hospital that day. This photograph was taken moments after the nurse attached a Do Not Resuscitate bracelet to my father's left wrist. The decision had been made, and if the time was to come, Dad got to make that decision for himself. This brought a sense of relief, in a way, because the pain was almost over, because he was no longer living a life of quality.
