While Casey Kasem lies in a Washington state hospital suffering from a severe infection on top of his advanced Lewy body dementia (not just Parkinson’s), a judge has ruled that Kerri Kasem–a daughter from the first marriage–can order doctors to withhold food, fluids and medication. This is in line with Casey’s own wishes, something he expressed in a directive back in 2007.
After the judge’s ruling, daughter Kerri Kasem posted a statement on her Facebook page.
My father can no longer digest foods and fluids fill his lungs up and will suffocate him. My Dad IS on pain meds.
Kasem is 82 and has been at the centre of a heated battle between his children and his wife of 33 years, Jean. (Via All Access)
