These are the thoughts of a cantankerous ol' gynecologist who remembers when things were a little different. I try to find a little humor in my life and the people I meet along the way. Come meet the characters in my world.

Around the Web – Broaching the End of Life Topic with Loved Ones

There is a campaign around the web to have all of us discuss with loved ones how we want our end of life care handled.  It is called The Engage with Grace Blog Rally.  The web site is: http://www.engagewithgrace.org/Default.aspx

There are a few basic questions that every person should answer concerning this time in our lives.  The people behind this organization have decided there are five questions. 
If you can’t get this printed from the blog, it is available on their web site. 

I agree that it is wise to have this discussion.  It avoids the family arguments that happen in emergency departments and intensive care units all over the USA.  Settle things now to avoid pain later.
