I've seen some things.



In my example above, there wasn't screaming from a son and a daughter, but there was a fair bit of enmity displayed towards yours truly. But now that time has moved on, they've come around and talk to me now.

My time is coming with my parents, really dreading it. I guess it is life, something we all have to deal with.

My remaining family is small. My mother, my sister and myself. I’m grateful that we all see eye to eye on these issues and none of us are religious wackos that would want to keep the other alive on life support.

Wonderful book
A movie was done by Julian Schnabel

The author and his assistant created an alphabet by his only means possible
Blinking his eyes. If I remember correctly each number of blinks was associated
With the letters order in the alphabet.


Great film

I'm honestly seeing them less and less.

It seems 9.5 times out of 10 they're ignored by family anyway, at least in my area of work, and the physicians don't have the balls to discuss care with the family in terms of what the directive states.

The really fucked up thing is when the patient has an advance directive and the family keeps "forgetting" to bring it in.

I was at a loss at how ill equipped the health care providers were.

At a certain point, I realized, these f'ers don't know what they are doing.

Hey, maybe our society does need those death panels after all.....

Anyway, this situation sucks for Sunny's family, and all these personal anecdotes show how universal this kind of suckage is, and probably why we should all try to be a little nicer to each other.

That is, when you aren't dropping in on me, you kook bastards!

(attempt at comic relief because this stuff bums me out)

Yes, I think sharing the horror stories is good.

We're all in this together, baby.

But stay off my wave.

After 20 years of mobile notary calls, I still can't get used to it. I've had a signer die with my pen in his hand while signing his Health Care Directive.

that's heavy.

i was a notary when i went to law school. i did pro bono notarizations for aids patients that were dieing. it was sad to see people wasting away on the cusp of death.

When I'm holding their hand, looking them in the eyes, asking the basic questions necessary to determine if they're aware of what they are signing, It's always hard not to show any emotions while inside you're heart is breaking. In most cases, the grim reaper is hiding in my shadow.
