Casey Kasem Being Taken Off Life Support - Will Live Out The Final Week Of His Life Surrounded By His Children

| Filed under: Sad SadHealthFamily

casey kasem daughters to pull plug on father

This whole thing is just so sad.

Casey Kasem has been in critical condition since the beginning of June and has remained in the hospital while his wife, Jean, and daughter Kerri have been battling it out for his conservatorship.

In the end, the judge ruled that Kerri will continue to have control over her father's health.

Sadly, the legendary radio DJ's children have decided to pull the plug on their father by withholding medication, food, and fluids. They plan on spending his final week with him.

Their decision is a result of what their dad told them before. Casey's kids revealed that their father has said:

"If the extension of my life would result in mere biological existence, devoid of cognitive function, with no reasonable hope for normal functioning, then I do not desire any form of life-sustaining procedures, including nutrition and hydration."

This is such a terrible situation to be in.

Obviously Jean isn't happy with the final decision. She stormed out of the courtroom, screaming that the kids will have Casey's blood on their hands.

It's a hard decision, but maybe it's best that he doesn't suffer anymore.

    If he has no life as in he will never recover then his daughter has made the right decision…I would want my children to do that for me too…not sustain pain and misery for them! They don't have blood on their hands it's an extremely hard decision to make x

    He's being fed nutrients through a tube. He has infected bedsores. He will get worse by the day even with the nutrients & water. I'm glad his children have accepted this & aren't going to drag out his suffering, if he's even aware anymore.

    Re: pollopicu – A feeding tube is life support. He can't eat anymore.

    So sad - remember listening to him as a teenager, he was the man!
    Sorry about the lack of food, if I was conscious I'd want a last cheeseburger but no idea what shape he is in. Soon he will be in a better place.

    Poor Jean loves him so much it seems like she's having trouble accepting where it is now. When they can't eat, and the feeding tube causes infections or repeated pneumonia, it's just a matter of time and any heroic measures just prolongs the agony and pain for Casey and all of the loved ones. This scenario is played out repeatedly at the end for loved ones everywhere, and is never easy so I wish them all courage and love.
